The Prepaid Credit and Debit Card Providers industry has experienced strong growth during the five years to 2015. While the slow recovery following the recession hampered many other industries, the weak economy played to this industry's strength. In the coming years, a number of factors will support strong industry growth, including an improving economy and higher disposable income levels, which will lead to increased transaction volumes, effectively raising interchange revenue.
This industry includes companies that issue preloaded, open-loop credit and debit cards to consumers for making purchases. This industry does not include electronic benefits transfer (EBT) cards or closed-loop, store-branded gift cards.
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.
