Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

Interesting times are ahead, according to the Packaged Facts report, Private Label Credit Cards in the U.S., 7th Edition. As America continues to struggle with an economy in hyper-flux, the private label card industry has stabilized the free-fall seen in the 2007-2010 period, setting the stage for future growth. With essentially all portfolios now being managed by third parties, improved credit quality and declining charge-offs, and indicators that consumer retail sales are picking up, issuers and retailers are focusing on their respective strengths moving forward.

There will still be hiccups in a return to growth but Packaged Facts forecasts receivables for private label card programs to reach $152 billion by 2015. While not to the levels seen pre-recession of $156 billion in 2007, the market should be cautiously optimistic. The future will still see many challenges but hopefully the good kind—such as how to integrate mobile technologies in to private label programs.

Aside from tracking receivables on an annual basis, to put the market in better context, several new metrics have been included to Private Label Credit Cards in the U.S., 7th Edition. These include:

  • U.S. General Purpose and Private Label Card Purchase Volumes and Share of Total General-Purpose Credit and Debit Card Purchase Volume
