The India prepaid cards market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of about 40.5% between 2021 and 2026 and is estimated to reach USD 340 billion by 2026.
The India prepaid cards market is being driven by the rising disposable incomes of the consumers and the varied gift cards offered by companies and retail outlets. The monetary value of the prepaid card is stored on its own, so that such products do not require the opening of a direct deposit or credit account with a bank. Few prepaid cards are not rechargeable, that is, gift cards, so these cards are disposed of off after their virtual sum is completely utilised. On the other hand, rechargeable prepaid cards can be regularly replenished with funds. Prepaid cards can also be bought online as well as from retailers, such as supermarkets, gas stations, office supplies stores, and drug stores.
A prepaid card is a convenient form of payment, and it takes very little time or money to get one. Moreover, prepaid cards are an alternative to cash, provide protection, and make purchases easier for consumers.
