Banking population in European 2018, by country

This statistic illustrates the banking population in Europe in 2018, by country. Statista estimates that of Germany's total population of approximately 83.5 million individuals in 2019, an estimated 69.45 million had a bank account. The United Kingdom and France finished the top three for banking populations with 54.5 million and 51.4 million individuals respectively.

For most banks to become leaders on a global scale they must branch out their operations. For example, the Spanish giant Santander in 2017 reported having 133 million customers globally despite Spain's banking population being under 37 million. This is because the brand operates in 18 countries worldwide.
