The impact of financial crisis resulted in waning growth in the Italian credit card market, which adversely impacted consumer confidence and forced companies to cut costs. The transaction value of commercial credit cards exhibited a review-period CAGR of 0.89%. Although growth has been impacted, the market still occupies a market share of 11.6% in terms of all Italian card payment channels. This is the result of a government policy of restricting limits on cash payment to EUR1,000 (US$1,390) − above this figure all payments must be made through cards.
