美國的儲值卡市場預測 11th Annual U.S. Prepaid Cards Market Forecasts, 2014-2017
出版日期: 2014年11月05日 內容資訊: 英文 58 Pages



  • 美國經濟的現狀,由於不明確的法規環境,及急速變化的付款技術,預付市場成長預測的方法一般來說是保守的
  • 緩慢的經濟復甦持續。還有由於社會安全及法院判決的支付,政府的給付金計劃持續縮小。
  • 2大市場區隔是傳統封閉迴路型商店內點數卡和營養補充。貨幣、金融服務市場區隔2013年預計超過封閉迴路型的營養補充卡,如果封閉迴路型點數卡的漏洞持續,2014年會成為最大的市場區隔。
  • 因為它是以一個更大的封閉迴路型市場為基礎,開放迴路型市場到2017年不會超過封閉迴路型市場。最急速成長的市場區隔,是開放迴路型FSA/HSA稅收遞延程式區隔、開放迴路型貨幣/金融服務市場區隔及封閉迴路型數位媒體市場區隔。

Prepaid Loads Continue to Grow as Individual Segments Struggle

New research from Mercator Advisory Group shows which segments of the prepaid market will grow, and which will shrink through 2017.

The report titled ‘11th Annual U.S. Prepaid Cards Market Forecasts, 2014-2017’ provides an analysis of the growth and development of the prepaid cards industry through 2017. The report overviews load, growth, and market dynamics in the United States across all prepaid segments.

Mercator Advisory Group's forecast report identifies key segments that will continue to witness a decline over the next few years as well as those that should see growth. The economy, politics, and consumer behavior will all influence which segments grow and which decline.

This report reviews and forecasts load dollar volume and card volume for both open-loop and closed-loop segments. This forecast highlights the segments approaching market saturation as well as those that will continue to experience double-digit annual growth.

“The fluctuating economy has made the prepaid market much more dynamic, with some segments benefitting and others seeing slower growth,” Ben Jackson, director of Mercator Advisory Group's Prepaid Advisory Service, and author of the report, comments.

Highlights of the report include:

  • In this annual forecast report, Mercator Advisory Group has taken a largely conservative approach to forecasting prepaid market growth due to the current state of the U.S. economy, the uncertain regulatory environment, and rapidly changing payments technology.
  • This forecast assumes that the slow economic recovery will continue and that government benefit programs will continue to shrink, with the exceptions of Social Security and Court-Ordered Payments.
  • The two largest segments traditionally have been closed-loop In-Store Gift Cards and Nutrition Assistance. The Money and Financial Services segment overtook closed-loop Nutrition Assistance cards in 2013, and, if the current weakness in closed-loop gift cards continues, it will become the largest segment in 2014.
  • Based on the much larger total closed-loop market size, the open-loop market will not surpass the closed-loop market until 2017, individual segments notwithstanding. The fastest growing segments are forecast to be the open-loop FSA/HAS Tax Deferred Programs segment, open-loop Money / Financial Services segment, and the closed-loop Digital Media segment.
