The Indian prepaid card market for transaction value has recently boomed and is predicted to grow at a CAGR of approximately 35.8% from 2022 to 2027 as the commercial sector rapidly adapts to the usage of prepaid cards. The penetration and growth of debit and credit cards, also known as plastic money, is growing rapidly in India. Card-based payments registered a CAGR of approximately 10% in terms of volume and approximately 18% in terms of value between FY18 to FY23. Moreover, the total number of credit card subscribers grew from approximately 63 million in FY21 to approximately 85 million in FY23 owing to increasing demand for cashless and convenient transactions, mostly by millennial customers. To meet expanding customer demand, the number of businesses accepting contactless payments has also increased six-fold in the past three years. The sectors driving the growth are quick-service restaurants, pharmacies, food and grocery. The RBI-DPI Index continues to show a considerable increase in digital payment usage and penetration across India.
