Card Reward Program Services

Acceptance of reward programs and macroeconomic improvements have driven growth for the Card Reward Program Services industry over the five years to 2018.

Over the past five years, consumers' willingness to accrue higher levels of debt led to increased demand for the industry's complementary services. Over the five years to 2023, industry revenue is projected to continue rising. Continued improvements in key macroeconomic variables and acceptance among downstream markets are expected to largely contribute to this growth. Nevertheless, industry operators will contend with a massive level of competition, primarily from credit card issuers and banks that develop and maintain internal card reward programs.
