Boston, MA -- June 28, 2010 - All things considered, the US acquiring space weathered the recession favorably, and it stands poised to take advantage of new growth opportunities, both as cash and check payments are increasingly displaced by cards and as investment dollars begin to thaw. The largest acquirers in the US are capturing more merchant payment volume than ever before, and recent moves to consolidate operations have left the market top-heavy.
This year Mercator Advisory Group's annual merchant acquiring report focuses on the consolidation of the industry and its impact on the participants as the overarching trend affecting the US market in 2009. The 'US Merchant Acquiring 2010: Consolidation at the Top' report examines the root causes of consolidation at the economic level thorugh analysis of declining retail sales data, and applying this information to identify segments of the US retail space that have been resilient through the economic downturn. Mercator also indicates the upside to falling sales volume by discussing the continuing displacement of cash and check payments by cards as a continuing driver of growth in the merchant services business.
As part of our annual coverage of this topic, Mercator again examines the threat of payments system pricing regulation as the passage of pending interchange legislation is imminent.
“The survivors of the consolidation game will at least have the chance to broaden and deepen the relationships they gain in their mergers and acquisitions,” David Fish, Senior Analyst in Mercator Advisory Group's Credit Advisory Service and author of the report comments. “Not only is value-added service and technology an absolute necessity for competition within the space, but it is even more critical as the competition is gradually absorbed. Even as the merchant services market continues to mature and consolidate, there will always be an entrepreneurial upstart with an innovative product or business model eager to carve out a piece of the pie.”
