The regulatory and economic markets have continued to boost consumers’ use of prepaid cards, encouraging greater adoption among targeted demographic segments. Although ownership of mainstream financial products — such as a checking account, savings account, debit card or credit card — has measurably decreased over the past year, prepaid cards have uniquely grown year over year. Prepaid cards are distinctive in that they enable the financial independence of underserved populations, focusing on two key segments: the underbanked and young consumers. This report covers recent changes to the market for prepaid products and explores usage trends among the leading demographic segments. The report further investigates innovations in the features and functionality of popular prepaid products, identifying marketing and product strategies that can be employed to further promote the adoption and use of prepaid cards.
