Mastercard’s gross dollar volumes

In the second quarter, Mastercard (MA) witnessed total gross dollar volumes (or GDV) of $1.5 trillion. Excluding the United States, the company’s GDV witnessed YoY growth of 16% mainly on the back of Asia-Pacific as well as Europe. The GDV from Europe in the second quarter was $433 billion compared to $356 billion in Q2 2017.

In addition, the European region could provide significant opportunities for Mastercard and Visa (V) in the long term primarily because of huge cash transactions. Visa’s payments volume from Europe was $428 billion in the June quarter, while in the March quarter it was $416 billion.
