The global credit card market is expected to grow from $100.05 billion in 2020 to $103.06 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $107.69 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 1.1%.

The impact of COVID-19 on a new credit card is expected to hinder the growth of the credit card market.Consumers are dialing back on applying for credit cards and reducing balances as there are fewer chances to spend money due to economic recession.

Also, digitally-focused businesses such as Apple, which announced the satisfactory acceptance of its Apple Card, noticed lower spending across the board. According to data from Equifax’s Weekly U.S. National, Consumer Credit Trends published in July 2019, general-purpose bank credit card approvals average were around 1.2 million new cards per week until mid-March. The new accounts opened dropped to 672,000 by the week of March 29 and continued to decline to less than 500,000 new cards a week. Therefore, the impact of the COVID-19 recession restrains the growth of the credit card market.

In January 2018, Scotiabank, a Canada-based financial services company announced that its Colombian subsidiary, Banco Colpatria Multibanca Colpatria S.A. (Banco Colpatria), acquired the consumer (retail and credit card) and small and medium enterprise operations of Citibank in Colombia for an undisclosed amount. Through this acquisition, Citibank will allow Scotiabank to serve new customers in Colombia and to increase scale within the Colombian banking sector, as well as the other Pacific Alliance economies of Mexico, Chile, and Peru. Citibank, a USA based financial services company engaged in providing a wide range of credit card, baking, investment, and wealth management services.

The rising demand for credit card is expected to fuel the growth of the credit card market in the forecast period.The rise in demand for consumer credit and the benefits offered by credit cards encourage individuals to use credit cards.

According to TransUnion CIBIL Limited, an India-based credit information company, credit card debts and the number of accounts increased by 40.7% and 29.8% respectively with 44.5 million cards in circulation in 2019. Therefore, the rising demand for credit card drives the growth of the credit card market.

The growing technological innovation is a key trend gaining popularity in the credit card market.Major corporations are concentrating on offering digital prepaid card services in emerging economies to attract a large consumer base for a prepaid credit card.
