This market is anticipated to expand at a 15.4% CAGR between 2021 and 2028.

The pandemic caused travel restrictions and disruptions to supply chains, which harmed the market for gift cards. However, as a result of recent improvements, the global gift card market is projected to expand as more people opt for convenient gift-giving options.

Market Drivers

The market for gift cards is expected to expand as more people adopt smartphones, which offer greater payment flexibility and convenience. For example, Gyft is one of the most popular options for gift cards as it's accessible to both iPhone and Android users. The software allows users to load their gift cards and use them when shopping.

The adoption of gift cards by corporate companies is another factor driving the gift card market. Companies view gift cards as a means of communication, appreciation, and relationship building with their customers, business partners, and employees. In addition, it allows them to create an inclusive workplace by employing effective recognition and reward systems.

In addition, gift cards enable retailers and marketers to increase brand awareness, boost customer engagement, and track customer behavior. Additionally, some banks offer discounted gift cards to their customers, driving the gift card market. 

In recent years, there has been an increase in demand for payment solutions that feature innovative products and technological advancements. As global mobile and internet usage continues to increase, the gift card industry is shifting from plastic to digital gift cards. Thus, it is anticipated that the global gift card market will expand in the coming years.

Several businesses in the gift industry are looking for innovative ways to expand their operations and use gift cards as a promotional tool. For businesses in the service industry, such as restaurants and cafeterias, gift cards are a vital source of immediate cash flow. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the value of gift cards has changed drastically for these businesses. In addition, advances in gift card technologies have helped businesses increase their sales by diversifying their product offerings, thereby boosting the global gift card market. 

However, one of the gift card market's biggest challenges is a lack of security. Gift cards are always at risk of getting hacked, which may hinder the growth of this market. In a rush to switch to e-gift cards, which are cheaper, more flexible, and more convenient, companies have overlooked possible security threats. Another constraint is that there are many gift companies offering innovative gift ideas to customers considered to be more thoughtful. Due to this reason, some customers prefer to stick with the traditional gift-giving method.
