Incentive Cards Market Outlook – 2027 

The global incentive cards market is experiencing significant growth and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. Incentive cards refers to award cards that are provided to any staff in an enterprise if the management wishes to reward its employees.

However, the rewarded employee cannot use an incentive card to withdraw cash at an ATM or in-store; it can be used to pay for products and services only.

The global incentive cards market is segmented on the basis of type, functional attribute, end user, and region. Based on type, the market is further segmented into consumer incentive card and employee/partner incentive card. In terms of functional attribute, the market is sub-divided into closed loop and open loop. Based on end user, the market is further segmented into individuals, corporate institutions, and others. Geographically, the global market is divided across North America (U.S. and Canada), Europe (Germany, UK, France, and rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, and rest of Asia-Pacific), Latin America (Brazil, Mexico, and rest of LATAM) and Middle East & Africa.

This partnership promotes higher response rates to the program by giving respondents digital incentives such as e-gift cards and Visa reward cards. 

The incentive rewards allow employees of Voxco to optimize survey collection response rates and drive engagement with participants. Furthermore, reward experience is reflects unique brand identity and loyalty of an organization. More number of such strategies are expected to strengthen positions of incentive card providers in the industry.
