Mexico Retail Banking: Opportunities and Risks to 2023


Mexico’s total loan balances outstanding (including residential mortgage balances outstanding, personal loan balances and credit card balances) recorded a CAGR of 9.9% during 2014-18, to reach MXN3.8tn ($193.5bn) in 2018. The country’s household debt, which witnessed a sharp increase in the review period, is far behind in magnitude when compared to other developing economies of the world.
The majority of Mexican loan balances outstanding are from home loans; residential mortgage balances outstanding accounted for 63.3% of total balances outstanding in 2018, followed by personal loans (26.1%) and credit card loans (10.6%). The economy witnessed a slowdown in its performance due to falling industrial production and growing uncertainties regarding trade relations with the country’s key trade partner, the US. In addition, the pace of employment growth has been moderate, with a decline in government spending on employment benefits and pensions. In such a scenario, a hike in lending rates can adversely impact households’ solvency. As a result, GlobalData estimates Mexico's total loan balances outstanding to grow at only a comparatively lower CAGR of 7.6% over 2019-23.
Mexico's gross household savings rate stood at 16.32% in 2018; the highest when compared to its peers, reflecting a consumer preference to save rather than spend. In addition, factors such as an increase in deposit rates, as well as rising average annual wages and an improving employment market, further drove the Mexican retail deposits base. Consequently, retail deposit balances in Mexico grew at a high CAGR of 11.3% during the review period.
