Global Gift Cards Market is valued approximately USD 619 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 15 % over the forecast period 2020-2027. A gift card is a stored value card being used as an alternative source of money in a specific shop or store for goods or services related purchases. Consumers prefer to purchase gift cards, whether in physical as well as digital, across multiple channels (online, in-store, smartphone websites and apps). These gift cards are usually issued by a retailer or bank as an organizational growth plan, attract new customers, raise brand recognition, minimize fraud and boost profits. Increasing use of e-commerce i.e. digital payments / wallets makes tracking, managing and redeeming gift cards easy for customers is one of the prominent factors contributing towards market growth. Apart from this, technological innovation in product offerings are the notable factors positively affecting the gift cards market. For instance, in 2019, InComm Company, in partnership with Razer Inc., launched Google Play Gift Cards in Malaysia, bringing the product to nearly 2,250 7-Eleven stores all over Malaysia. In 2019, CashStar, Inc. launched the Interactive Gift Card Platform, which is anticipated to open up new market opportunities for market players. Companies like Uno Chicago Grill, Travelocity Incentives and Gorham Bike & Ski are mainly engaged in offering interactive gift cards through the CashStar platform. Different kinds of fees associated with card transactions and the lack of security measures compared to credit or debit cards are major restrictions that hamper the growth of the market.
