Savings Banks & Thrifts in the US
The Savings Banks and Thrifts industry has exhibited moderate growth over the five years to 2018 due to favorable economic conditions and increased demand for residential mortgages. Rising consumer income in the form of per capita disposable income coupled with low interest rates have resulted in an again-thriving housing market. As demand for housing has increased, demand for residential mortgages has resulted in increased revenue for the industry. Decreased regulatory oversight and continued strength in the housing market are expected to drive industry growth over the five years to 2023. In addition, growth in the housing market is expected to continue, albeit at a gradual pace. However, rising interest rates will hinder demand for loan products as loan terms become less favorable.
The industry includes companies that accept customer deposits and place them into interest-bearing products like savings accounts and certificates of deposit (CDs). Industry operators then loan these deposits at higher interest rates through consumer and business loans and make profit on the difference. This industry only covers companies governed by the Office of Comptroller of the Currency; commercial banks and credit unions are not included in this industry.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
