Mercator Advisory Group Statement on Closed-Loop Market
"Growth in the closed-loop prepaid market has been driven by the in-store gift card segment, which continues to grow and develop as retailers move from thinking about prepaid cards as a plastic version of paper gift certificates to a multifunctional promotions and sales tool," says Ben Jackson, senior analyst in Mercator's Prepaid Advisory Service and author of the report. 
Mercator Advisory Group Statement on Open-Loop Market
"While some segments had growth of over 1000% between 2010 and 2011, others saw continued double digit growth rates and one actually contracted by more than 1%. The growth has been driven by the cash access and government categories; however, the future growth of the market could be hurt by potential regulatory actions," says Tim Sloane, director of Mercator's Prepaid Advisory Service and author of the report.
