Global Commercial Credit Cards Market to 2025 - Impact of COVID-19 -

·2-min read

DUBLIN, July 27, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Commercial Credit Cards: International Markets Review and Forecast, 2020-2025" report has been added to's offering.

In global markets outside of North America, spending growth remains underpinned by corporate cards, used mostly for travel and entertainment (T&E), as well as virtual cards used to settle with travel management companies. The consequent spending volume in corporate cards is closely tied to travel budgets and general corporate adoption. The pandemic had a deleterious effect on global business travel spend. A new research report, Commercial Credit Cards: International Markets Review and Forecast, 2020-2025; COVID Bounce Back Not Expected Until 2023, reviews the current situation and outlook as the industry recovers from the effects of COVID-19 and business lockdowns.

Given the remedies selected by most government entities to combat viral spread, varying levels of GDP declines were felt across regions in 2020, with economic recovery expected to have a similar level of variability during 2021-22. As such there was an expected massive drop off in spending on corporate cards. Commercial credit card spend for mid-large market companies outside of North America was 42% lower than in 2019. Going forward, recovery levels and expected behavioral changes in business travel are the most pressing issue. A continued shift to digital payments and virtual cards will help improve spending levels through 2022 and partially offset the travel slowdowns. In this report we will discuss the overall pandemic impact on economic growth, then address how that plays out both short and longer term on spending in each indicated region.

Highlights of this research report include:

  • Post-pandemic economic outlook in the indicative global markets

  • Review of overall card spending trends and expectations across multiple regions

  • Regional highlights of developments potentially impacting commercial card businesses

  • Estimated spending on commercial credit cards for the indicated regions through 2025

Key Topics Covered:

  • Executive Summary

  • Introduction

  • The COVID Economy

  • Western Europe

  • Asia Pacific

  • Latin America and Caribbean (LAC)

  • Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa

  • Conclusion
