EMVCo: 4.8 billion of EMV cards in global circulation in 2015

EMVCo has reported sustained growth in the worldwide adoption of EMV chip technology. Official figures of aggregated data show that by the end of 2015, the number of EMV payment cards in global circulation increased, year on year, by 1.4 billion to 4.8 billion.

In addition, EMVCo reports that 35.8% of all card-present transactions conducted globally between January and December 2015 used EMV chip technology, up from 32% for the same period in 2014.

The EMV migration in the US has been slow, but many retailers that have wanted to implement chip acceptance faster couldn’t do so because of long lines to install and certify the software and equipment. Consequently, many delayed implementing EMV until the last minute, or began making plans to adopt it only after being hit with chargebacks (fees for fraudulent credit-card charges).
