DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "U.S. Major Networks & Issuers Market Analysis, Performance & Trends - Quarterly Review (2015-2019) and Annual Historical & Forecast (2015-2025)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.


The mixed performance bag of the U.S. payment card market in 2019 produced record-setting double-digit yields and highest pre-tax ROAs in more than 30 years.

However, portfolio metrics reveal erratic American consumer behavior with spending and debt, amidst global economic uncertainty. The extended U.S. recovery has produced an erosion in credit quality, re-igniting a race to the bottom. Going forward, profitability in the U.S. payment card market will likely face significant pressure from recession losses, reduced purchase volume coupled with rising account acquisition and card enhancement costs.

This report, divided into seven sections, examines the operating performance, critical metrics, market dynamics and growth potential of the U.S. payment card market, including credit cards, charge cards, debit cards and prepaid cards.

The report carefully examines the historical performance patterns on a quarter-by-quarter basis for the past five years. Annual historical performance of the past five years is reviewed and coupled with a five year forecast. Performance data are presented individually and by peer group.

The report primarily covers a wide range of peer group performance metrics for the four major U.S.-based payment card networks, four largest U.S. bank payment card portfolios, and the two hybrid network/issuers. Collectively this peer group represents over 60% of the total U.S. market in payment card outstandings and nearly 100% of the U.S. market based on purchase dollar volume.

Additionally, the report identifies and details the current individual annual performance data (outstandings and purchase dollar volume) of the 50 largest U.S. issuers, representing over 70% of the U.S. payment card market. Historical and current quarterly performance data (revolving debt, delinquency, charge-offs and pricing) of the Top 100 banks, based on assets, representing more than 80% of the U.S. payment card market, is presented on a peer group level.

Most importantly each of the 43 parts includes a commentary and analysis of other key performance discussion, if relevant, including marketing expenses, per account acquisition costs, marketing channels, voluntary attrition, involuntary attrition, average tickets, portfolio segmentation by credit score and product type, reward redemption rates, fee development, demographics, new products and services, mobile apps and emerging payment technology.

Through a total of 344 exhibits and more than 5,000 data points the U.S. payment card market reveals the trend lines developing over the past five years and the basis for a reliable five-year forecast.

Industry Insights

The U.S. payment card industry has reached the point of saturation of credit card products, the maturation of debit card products and the accelerating penetration of prepaid cards will produce unprecedented challenges in the next five years. Card issuers are also facing a likely downward global economic cycle in the 2021 to 2023 period, dampening U.S. consumer spending and personal debt aversion.

Regardless, opportunities abound in the U.S, marketplace with the integration of mobile apps and other financial technology (Fintech) to capture payment volume. Migrating current and future card products to less complex and lower cost rewards programs is inevitable. Snippet counter marketing of competitor weaknesses in basic card pricing in late payment, balance transfers, cash advances and foreign transactions will likely emerge.

While risk management will be the key to the mitigation of card metrics during the next few years including credit lines, opportunities exist to market consumer friendly debt management through minimum payment waivers and short-term interest rate reductions.

It is imperative for U.S. payment card issuers to thoroughly review the effectiveness of current marketing channels, stem the rising tide of account attrition rates pervasive among major portfolios. Internet marketing has become intrusive over the past five years, diminishing brand value via the aggressiveness of online marketing via third parties.
