The report titled 13th Annual U.S. Prepaid Cards Market Forecasts, 2016–2019 provides an analysis of the growth and development of the prepaid cards industry through 2019. The report examines 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 undergo declining loads 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.
"The fundamental business proposition of prepaid cards as a valuable payments tool continues to be strong. Nonetheless, prepaid providers should be evaluating their businesses and looking for ways to diversify," Ben Jackson, director of Mercator Advisory Group's Prepaid Advisory Service, and author of the report, comments.
