“RBR’s cards research provides us with strategic, industry benchmark data of a quality which is heads above anything else available.”

"The level of detail and quality of research that RBR provides is simply not available from any other source."

"We require reliable and comprehensive research at both the deployer and country level. For more than a decade, RBR has provided us with such research."
Wincor Nixdorf

"We use RBR's Global ATM Study both for strategic planning centrally and for tactical planning and customer support at the local country level. The study has comprehensive geographic coverage and enough depth to allow us to access information that results in analyses that would have otherwise been impossible or impractical."

China Research

In response to the increasing interest in, and lack of high quality market intelligence on, the retail banking, banking automation and payments industry in China, RBR has published a series of dedicated reports on the Chinese market.

China has the world’s largest ATM market. The number of ATMs in the country has soared from 223,000 to 615,000 in just five years. As the market has grown, the dynamics of the market have changed. The role of different types of ATM deployer, the mix of ATM types and the manufacturers supplying terminals have all evolved significantly.

This latest report is by far the most detailed analysis ever published of the Chinese ATM sector. It provides a comprehensive commentary on the development of the ATM market and accurate statistics on critical ATM metrics, covering ATM hardware, software and services. Information is provided not just at the country level, but also for all the main banks and independent ATM service providers in the country.

China has by far the largest number of bank branches in the world. As the Chinese banking sector continues to develop and banks begin placing more emphasis on operational and commercial efficiency, the role of branch and teller automation is likely to increase.

Despite this opportunity, the Chinese market for teller assist units (TAUs) has not evolved as rapidly as anticipated. There is considerable uncertainty about the factors holding back deployment – this report examines the regulatory and other factors which appear to be holding back deployment and examines the market drivers which are likely to trigger expansion. In addition, the report provides an update on the latest TAU deployment status.
