This research report, International Commercial Cards: Market Review and Forecast, 2018–2023, reviews regional trends and card growth through 2023 for mid- to large-market segments in Western Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and for the first time, Middle East/Africa. 

“The outlook for noncash spending remains generally robust, especially across the indicated regions. But while commercial payments is estimated to be in the range of $100 trillion (USD) combined annually in these regions, commercial card share of the payment flows is less than 1 percent,” commented Steve Murphy, Director of Commercial and Enterprise Payments Advisory Service, author of the report. “Even though growth has been steady and relatively strong, the movement into business-to-business (B2B) payables flows outside of the travel industry has been limited. Headwinds in the form of regulations remain a hurdle, as do longer-term potential threats from new payment schemes, but the general outlook for commercial cards is strong through the next five years, with opportunity available through broader penetration of the payables book.”

Highlights of the report include:

  • Global economic activity and noncash payments trends
  • An overview of the commercial cards market trends in each major region
  • Detailed discussion of the specific market issues affecting commercial cards in the various regions
