Paying off: Debtors had trouble paying out, but the economic recovery will return balance to the industry

Debt Collection Agencies in the US

After a rising tide of debt swamped the economy, collectability rates fell, canceling out the spike in debt-collection opportunities and hurting revenue. However, the economy is set to recover over the next five years, with improving debt recovery rates, declining unemployment and higher housing prices. As a result, debt collection agencies will experience renewed demand, resulting in modest revenue growth.

The Debt Collection Agencies industry includes businesses that pursue payments on debts that individuals and businesses owe. Most collection agencies operate as agents of creditors and collect debts for a fee or percentage of the total amount owed. Other agencies purchase debt portfolios from creditors at deep discounts and then pursue outstanding balances for their own gain.

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.
