Prepaid transactions have transitioned from simple paper vouchers to multi-purpose prepaid cards. This trend is expected to continue during the forthcoming years, owing to liquidity issues. Multipurpose prepaid cards are gaining traction among consumers who do not have access to other forms of electronic payments such as debit or credit cards.

Moreover, rise in demand for cash alternatives and availability of affordable and energy-efficient prepaid cards drive the growth of the prepaid card market. In addition, developments in the e-commerce industry and increase in adoption of prepaid cards because of adding funds through multiple avenues fuel the growth of the market.

However, lack of standardization and fraudulent attacks hamper the growth of the market. Furthermore, increase in unbanked and underbanked population is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the prepaid card industry. According to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in 2018, 6.5% of the U.S. households were unbanked, which indicates that 8.4 million U.S. households are still left in the economy to operate without bank account. Generally, this population opts for prepaid cards as these cards are safe, inexpensive, and essential banking substitutes to cater to their financial transaction needs.

Rise in demand for cash alternatives, increase in number of internet users, and rise in adoption of prepaid cards due to adding funds through multiple avenues are the major factors that drive the growth of the global prepaid card market. Moreover, lack of standardization hamper the growth of the market. Furthermore, increase in unbanked and under banked population is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the market expansion during the forecast period.
