Credit Card Issuing in the US IBISWorld Industry Report

Credit Card Issuing in the USThe Credit Card Issuing industry was hit hard by the recession, as high unemployment rates and contracting credit caused delinquencies to rise. These trends contributed to a free fall in profit, as more people delayed making credit card payments or missed payments entirely. However, conditions will ease over the next five years, with the industry set to make a steady recovery. As consumers use cash less and online commerce more, demand for credit cards will increase substantially.This industry issues credit cards, providing the funds required to buy goods and services in return for payment on a full balance or installment basis. Credit cards issued in the United States are not issued directly by Visa, MasterCard or any other payment-solution organization. Rather, Visa, MasterCard and other similar corporations provide the actual payment systems used when payments are made by credit card.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.
