« Global Gift Card Market Analysis 2022 | Bekryl market analysts »

The global gift card market will register a 3.7x increase in revenue by 2030 compared to 2021. According to Bekryl, brand integration as well as product digitization and promotion will play a key role in the gift card reader turnover.

According to the recently released report by Bekryl, the global gift card market is estimated to be worth US$865.7 billion in 2022 and is expected to register a CAGR of 14.0% during the forecast period. By 2024, the industry will cross the US$1 billion mark, primarily due to the increase in online shopping as well as macroeconomic factors including higher out-of-pocket spending. Over the past few years, there has been a significant change in the business models of the gift card industry. This could be inferred from the fact that digital electronic cards increased from 2.7% market share in 2009 to 25.04% in 2020. As a result, engaged players are focusing on product innovations as well as a commitment long-term with traders for stable business growth.

Excerpts from the report indicate that North America dominated global revenue in 2021. The region accounted for 36.2% share in 2021. However, the region will lose basis points to Asia Pacific and the MEA region. This means growing product penetration in developing economies. Asia-Pacific with an Attractiveness Index of 3.0 will gain more than 1000 BPS during the forecast period. India and China are the main markets in Asia-Pacific. The decline in the Internet pricing model has led to a significant increase in the number of Internet influencers, which has led to an upscaling of the audio interface. The region will generate 2.8 times higher revenue opportunities between 2021 and 2030.
