The Chinese government is looking to attract more private and foreign capital into the industry.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 07, 2012
Revenue for the Commercial Banking industry in China is defined as net operating income, including net interest received and net fee income. Over the five years through 2012, industry revenue has been growing at an annualized rate of 15.4% to an estimated $442.8 billion, says IBISWorld.
Commercial banks in China are divided into: state-owned commercial banks, which includes China's four largest banks (Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, China Construction Bank, Agricultural Bank of China, and Bank of China) joint-stock commercial banks with stock, private and foreign stock shares operating at the national level; city commercial banks operating at the city level; foreign and joint venture (JV) banks; and, other banking institutions, including urban and rural credit cooperatives, rural commercial banks and urban cooperative banks. Bank locations in rural areas have been increasing as the rural financial market has the largest consumer base and the most development opportunities. The gradual liberalization of the market and government measures to attract more private and foreign capital will improve the competitiveness of current state-owned and joint-stock commercial banks. As a result, the high market share concentration of the Commercial Banking industry in China is set to fall in the long term.
Weak demand for new medium- and long-term loans, a narrowing interest spread and intensified industry competition are expected to constrain growth in 2012 and beyond, says IBISWorld. However, the number of rural banking establishments will continue to expand, especially, village banks providing financial services for local farmers, community credit cooperative institutions, wholly owned subsidiaries and other forms of establishments by domestic commercial banks; and rural cooperative banks.
