Japan Prepaid Cards Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024

The Japan prepaid cards market grew at a CAGR of around 16% during 2013-2018. Prepaid card is a payment card which has previously deposited cash balance and is used as an alternative of cash payment. These cards do not require opening of a direct deposit or lending account with a bank. Some prepaid cards are not reloadable, such as gift cards. On the other hand, reloadable prepaid cards can be replenished with funds repeatedly.

The Japan’s e-commerce market is the fourth largest in the world and is growing at a fast rate, thereby indulging a greater number of consumers making online payments using prepaid cards. Moreover, modern retail facilities such as hypermarkets, supermarkets, convenience stores, etc., offer loyalty programs and reward schemes with prepaid cards that motivate the customers to gravitate toward cashless payment in the country. In addition to this, prepaid cards are also used for the various micropayments in Japan such as tight linkage with retail payments, contactless transport products like prepaid transport ticketing, etc. As a result, merchants are also looking for ways to expand their closed-loop prepaid cards to other networks such as airports, vending machines and highway service stations, etc. Moreover, Japan is looking forward to host 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, where united front between public and private sectors is anticipated to drive the prepaid cards market in order to promote a cashless environment.
