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.
