  • 开环预付费卡市场因其用途而高度分散,但到2019年,大多数细分市场都实现了一定的增长。但是,由于新的冠状病毒感染(COVID-19)的传播,自2020年第一季度末以来,有些市场一直停滞不前。
  • 预计到2024年,美国开环预付卡市场规模(收费)将增长4.1%,总额达到4662亿美元。另一方面,在某些地区(高速缓存访问除外),新的冠状病毒感染(COVID-19)的传播预计将受到严重影响,并且需要数年的时间才能恢复。
  • 每个州对预付卡作为公共支出的一种方式的处理各州之间差异很大。而这个问题本身就是阻碍预付卡发展的主要外生因素。
  • 总体而言,毫不夸张地说,开环预付卡的市场趋势受到COVID-19的影响的程度与总体经济趋势一样严重。

COVID-19 impact reveals disparate effect on different prepaid segments.

Mercator Advisory Group's 17th annual prepaid market forecast clocks some big hits - and some growth.

Mercator Advisory Group's most recent report, “ 17th Annual U.S. Open-Loop Prepaid Cards Market Forecast 2020-2024, Part II’, reveals that some verticals in open-loop prepaid show the capacity for growth, while others, including Campus, show drastic, and likely secular decline.

The Mercator Advisory Group forecast is derived from market knowledge gained through research done by Mercator since 2004.

However, even this archive of more than a decade of historical data provides little guidance on the future of markets that are growing rapidly and facing disruptive technology and services as well as historic new regulatory constraints. These factors, combined with dependence on funding sources tightly coupled to the economy and consumer sentiment, mean that the prepaid market is volatile and variable from one segment to another.

Considering the robust 2019 economy and new regulations that started April 1, 2019, followed by the social and economic disruption of 2020's COVID-19 pandemic, the potential for dramatic shifts among prepaid card segments is readily apparent. Our findings for 2019, and our forecast for the future predict just this kind of volatility for some segments.

"Government funding is not necessary to the health of any given open-loop prepaid vertical, even if it doesn't hurt," said Theodore Iacobuzio, vice president and managing director Mercator's research division. "For example, Open-Loop Restricted Access Network loads show secular growth into the new decade's middle years."

This report is 25 pages long and contains 16 exhibits.

Highlights of this report include:

  • This is the second part of Mercator's annual Prepaid Open-Loop Market Forecast, and covers all kinds of open loop cards except those in the Cash Access category, that were covered in part one.
  • The open-loop prepaid market is highly segmented, as the industry develops different types of cards for different use cases, ranging from campus cards to in-store Restricted Access Network cards.
  • Most of these segments showed some growth during 2019, owing to the strong economy in that year, though some segments were showing weakness that would be exacerbated by the arrival of the COVID-19 virus toward the end of the first quarter of 2020.
  • While Mercator Advisory Group forecasts that growth in overall open loop prepaid loads in the United States at 4.1% through 2024, reaching a total of $466.2 billion, some segments, especially outside the Cash Access category, have suffered seriously under the impact of the virus and will take years to recover, if they recover at all.
  • Government attitudes regarding prepaid cards as disbursal mechanisms for state funding vary, and in themselves represent exogenous events as serious as COVID-19 itself for the state of the business.
  • It is safe to say that some categories of open loop prepaid cards will change in much the same way that the overall economy is going to change, and is currently changing, under the impact of the virus.
