Commercial Banking in the US
Revenue for the Commercial Banking industry finally returned to growth in 2015, after declining every year since 2008. Declining revenue over the first three years of the period is attributable to the effect that the subprime mortgage crisis had on the banking sector. Despite a strong 2015 and 2016, the industry struggled over the five years to 2017, increasing sluggishly; however, profit margins have been on the rise. Significant consolidation in the industry over the past five years has resulted in many unprofitable banks exiting the market. Over the five years to 2022, government regulation and technology-driven competition are forecast to change the business model that commercial banks use. In addition, too-big-to-fail banks will grow deposits at a faster rate than smaller savings institutions, whose reputations were severely damaged thanks to the significant number of bank failures that occurred during the economic downturn.
This industry comprises banks that provide financial services to retail and business clients in the form of commercial, industrial and consumer loans. Banks accept deposits from customers, which are used as sources of funding for loans. Banks in this industry are regulated by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
