Global Prepaid Card Market to Grow at a CAGR of 14.6% During 2022-2027, Aided by the Growing Acceptance of Prepaid Cards in Various Industries for Efficient Fund Transaction

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Prepaid Card Market Report and Forecast 2022-2027’, the market attained a value of around USD 2115 billion in 2020. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.6% in the forecast period of 2022-2027.

The prepaid card industry is being driven by the increased demand among consumers for efficient and easy fund transaction. Through prepaid cards, the funds can be transferred electronically and can be distributed to the recipients within seconds. Over the forecast period, the market is expected to be augmented by the increased adoption of prepaid cards to eradicate potential instances of fraud and provide a more secure payment alternative to cash and credit/debit cards. The market is expected to be further propelled by the growing adoption of open-loop prepaid cards, owing to the various advantages offered by them including universal acceptability, immediate availability of the funds, convenient payment solutions, and the reduction of overdraft fees, among others.

In October 2020, Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria, S.A. (NYSE: BBVA) launched a new prepaid card, called Aqua. The card comes with a dynamic CVV code and without any printed card numbers (PAN) or expiration dates. Aqua will strengthen the digital and physical security as it prevents data transfer to avoid fraudulent use. Furthermore, Aqua can be accessed through Android or iPhone apps to check the card number, CVV, and expiry date every time the user needs to make a payment. Such developments are expected to support the growth of the prepaid card industry in the forecast years.

In terms of region, North America is likely to account for a significant share in the market, owing to the rising awareness among individuals regarding digital safety and security in pursuit of avoiding any issues of financial frauds. The growing preference for card payments among individuals for the execution of various online tasks, such as ticket booking, and online purchasing, among others, is likely to propel the market growth in the region. Furthermore, the increased digitalisation in countries like the United States and Canada and the penetration of advanced technology across industry verticals are expected to bolster the prepaid card industry in the forecast period.
