The Indian ATM market continues to grow rapidly, at an annual growth rate of 30 to 40 per cent. The installed base of ATMs is now close to 20,000. The cash transactions from ATMs now amount to more than Rs 1 trillion a year. The average number of transactions per day has tripled in three years while the average value has grown by over 60 per cent. For banks like ICICI and HDFC, ATMs now account for a majority of all bank transactions and more than 80 per cent of all cash transactions. ATMs are no longer technology showcases or even a competitive edge. They are a must-have, for banks big and small. In the last year or so, there has been progress in the area of networks and alliances. Banks are also beginning to move to outsourcing. The concept of retail ATMs is beginning to get attention. There is no consensus yet on the value of value-added services but they continue to proliferate.
The mission of this conference is to provide an update on these key trends and developments in the Indian ATM market and to discuss and debate the main issues, by seeking answers to questions like:
- Will ATMs grow at the same rate over the next few years?
- What are the key drivers of the recent ATM growth in India?
- How will the networks evolve? Will we have a single national network?
- How will ATMs affect profitability?
- What are the key ATM usage and transaction fee trends?
- What is the value of value-added services?
- What are the prospects of retail ATMs?
- What are the key impeding issues?
- What innovations can we expect?
- How will ATMs serve the rural market?
- What are the issues relating to outsourcing?
- Etc., etc.
The conference will have two distinct half-day sessions: Trends & Issues and Focus on New Opportunities.The first session will focus on key trends and issues. The second session will focus on new opportunities like retail ATM, rural market, value-added services, etc. Each session will feature two or three presentations followed by a panel discussion. The conference will feature viewpoints of all the major stakeholders (banks, ATM manufacturers, shared network managers, technology providers, etc.).
