About This Report


The Debt Collection Agencies industry comprises 394 companies that collect debts on behalf of clients, such as credit card companies. Some operators purchase debt portfolios at less than their face value and then collect these debts themselves. The industry's performance is influenced by a number of factors, including the level of personal and business debt, demand for debt collectors' services and the recovery rate on these debts. These factors are all affected by the state of the economy.

The industry includes companies that purchase debt portfolios from financial institutions and other companies at less than their face value. They then seek to recover the outstanding amounts. The industry also covers agencies that collect debts on behalf of clients, charging a fee or taking a percentage of the funds recovered.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
