The North American region — comprised of Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the United States — is one of the most advanced, exciting and profitable regions in the world when it comes to payment cards. The United States is indeed the home of the credit card; it is the most profitable credit cards market in the world on an absolute basis and dominates the region in almost every respect.

This new series of Lafferty research reports provides a comprehensive analysis of the cards markets across seven global regions: Africa, Asia-Pacific, Eastern Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, North America and Western Europe.

Each report will help you to understand the current consumer cards landscape in any given country or region and give you the information you need to see where the market is heading and explore the potential for further lending expansion, confident in the knowledge that you have all the latest data at your fingertips.

Each report is enhanced by attractive, easy-to-understand graphs and charts, a regional overview with global and intra-region benchmarks, and insights into the factors driving growth at both a national and regional level.
