The economic impact of COVID-19 has resulted in severe income drops for many Indian consumers, with a dramatic decline in discretionary spending. The situation has led to downtrading across the board. Moreover, until early September on-trade establishments were prohibited from selling alcoholic drinks, and this, together with a lack of social occasions and meet-ups, contributed to a decline in bigger pack sizes in alcoholic beverages. Several states have increased the tax on alcohol by up to…

The impact on COVID-19 on packaging trends in France was most visible in terms of reduced demand for smaller and on-the-go formats across the board and a shift towards larger packs in line with increased at-home consumption and shared family values packs. As horeca establishments shut down, 2020 has seen a drop in sales of on-trade alcoholic drinks packaging. However, unlike in many other countries, there was no pick-up in off-trade sales, which have also declined in 2020. One reason for…

Global Financial Cards and PaymentsAudience, Geographies and Key Players 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic had a substantial impact on Hungary’s financial cards and payments industry during 2020. Perhaps the most noticeable and important changes seen in consumer behaviour during the year was the shift away from the use of cash and towards card payments.

Instead, retailers are collaborating with banks to launch co-branded credit cards and then tie these credit products to their respective loyalty schemes, thus enabling them to offer very favourable terms and conditions while still strengthening their relationships with their customers. It…

Global Financial Cards and PaymentsAudience, Geographies and Key Players 2021

There were no store cards operating in Indonesia at the end of the review period, and there are currently no expectations of any such financial cards entering the market over the forecast period. It is expected that Indonesians will prefer to use regular financial cards such as credit or debit cards, or even financial institutions that offer credit digitally, such as Kredivo. Due to the limitations of store cards it seems unlikely that there would be any significant demand for these…

Increased rational spending amid a weakened economy and falling incomes due to COVID-19 has seen sales fall in several areas of packaging, with other areas benefiting from consumers’ realigned purchasing priorities and value-seeking habits. In the case of home care packaging, there has been no indication of a change in preferences with regard to pack sizes. However, the hastened shift towards purchases through e-commerce channels, along with increased time spent at home, has led to larger…

Store cards have been non-existent in the Netherlands since 2015. Since then, no new players have entered the category and there have been no new attempts to introduce store cards by any of the category’s former players. There is little sign that any meaningful change to this situation will be seen during the forecast period, especially as Dutch consumers now have a wide range of other financial cards to choose from. These include debit cards and credit cards, which generally offer more…

Sales in packaging in Singapore have been severely shaken by the lockdown, social restriction regulations and continued reduced social interaction as consumers remain reluctant to go out and meet in groups as frequently as in pre-pandemic times.

Global Credit Cards Audience, Geographies and Key Players 2021

Prior to the emergence of the pandemic, South Africa was already experiencing a rise in the cost of living, which was not being matched by salary increases, resulting in mid-income consumers struggling to afford the lifestyles to which they had become accustomed, which resulted in greater demand for consumer credit to fund purchases and supporting the further growth in personal credit card utilisation. An increasing number of South Africans had therefore become more focused on the present…

Global Debit Cards Audience, Geographies and Key Players 2021

The emergence of COVID-19 in South Africa and the subsequent lockdown measures resulted in rising unemployment (particularly for those involved in the tourism and foodservice industries), and decreasing disposable incomes.

Unlike 2019, which had seen a rise in the…

Global Pre-Paid CardsAudience, Geographies and Key Players 2021

Despite experiencing declines in the number of transactions made and transaction value in 2020, the number of pre-paid cards continued to grow, driven by the dominant open loop pre-paid cards. The latter tends to be comprised of unbanked consumers with government benefit cards holding the largest volume share of open loop pre-paid cards, in addition to South Africans with poor credit which does not allow them to own other types of financial cards, credit-averse consumers, and for those who…

Global Store CardsAudience, Geographies and Key Players 2021

Demand for store cards in South Africa was already stagnating towards the end of the review period as retailers, including apparel and footwear specialist retailers and departments stores, grew increasingly concerned about issuing cards due to the increasing number of South Africans getting into high amounts of debt that they would be unable to pay off in full.
