There are more Union Pay cards in circulation now than any other brand - 3.53 billion, or nearly a quarter of the world’s total, according to the industry newsletter, the Nilson Report.
Visa remains the world leader by transaction value with .6 trillion in card transactions in the first half of 2013; Union Pay was second with .5 trillion.
