Followed by Korean and Indian large banks.

According to Barclays, for the past nine years (2003-11), large banks in Asia excluding Japan, recorded a 1.3% decline in deposit market share gains: 51% for 2011 vs. 52.3% for 2003.

Here's more from Barclays:

The decline was attributable to the 15.6% fall in market share for China large banks. Excluding China’s large banks as well as those in Japan, large Asian banks posted a moderate 1.1% deposit market share gain for the period.

China’s largest five state-owned banks witnessed broader restructuring in their businesses during their pre-IPO period, leading to a steady fall in their deposit shares for 2003-07.

Singapore large banks (+11.3%) grew the most during the period, followed by the Korean (+2.1%) and Indian (+1.1%) large banks. Taiwan’s large banks posted 0.3% gains during the period. China’s banks declined the most followed by Indonesian (4.4%) and Hong Kong (3.6%) large banks.
