This market includes traditional pawnbrokers, stores which focus primarily on trading of second-hand goods - in particular jewellery and consumer electronics - and those whose main focus is high-interest lending such as payday loans, term loans and cheque cashing.
There is significant overlap between these activities with most leading operators now carrying out a mix of each.
We quantify the market size, historical growth rates, segmentation patterns and levels of industry profitability while reviewing key factors behind these figures.

The report builds on the 2012 version but has been comprehensively updated, extended and re-written.

WHAT ARE THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS MARKET REPORT?

Pawnbrokers, second hand stores and high street payday lenders have grown at rapid rates over the last few years.
The industry is frequently in the news but is not well understood.

- Lenders are often criticised for charging high rates of interest which exploit low-income consumers.
- They are also frequently praised for offering credit to those who cannot obtain it from mainstream sources and giving them an alternative to illegal loan sharks.
