“Mature markets accounted for 77% of the total volumes [of noncash transactions] but ... growth rates are higher in the developing markets—18.7% versus 6.2% in the mature markets in 2011. Much of the growth in the developing markets was driven by Emerging Asia, and Central Europe, Middle East, Africa (CEMEA). These regions have a low share of the global total of noncash transactions, but investments in payments services and infrastructure are helping them to grow significantly off a low base.”
