With gift cards market witnessing an unprecedented growth, the existing players have enormous growth potential in the years to come. One of the common strategies amongst players in the gift card market is to enhance its presence through social media. Starbucks has always remained in the forefront in this context and has been constantly using social media for e-gifting. The brand sends gift cards via Facebook, e-mail, Starbucks mobile app or physical mail. Similarly, WeChat, the most popular Chinese messaging app allows its users to send and receive gift cards. The company initiated this modern approach in 2013 by facilitating users to exchange virtual cash-filled red envelopes during occasions such as Chinese New Year.

E-gifting propelling the gift cards market growth

Closed loop gift cards segment led the overall gift cards market in 2017. The segment accounted for over 55% of total market value in 2017. Closed loop gift card is used to make purchases from a single company and has logo of the company where it is usable. It does not have logo of any major payment processors such as MasterCard or Visa. The closed loop gift cards, though being the largest segment is facing stiff competition from open loop gift cards. However, in order to stay competitive, the closed loop card issuers are focusing on expansion of their participating merchant network. Open loop gift cards segment expected to register a high growth during the forecast period. Open loop gift cards have gained preference as it facilitates the recipients to have multiple destinations to shop from. Another prominent factor contributing to open loop gift cards segment growth is enhanced security. As these cards can be used to purchase from multiple retailers, even in case of bankruptcy of a retailer, it can be used elsewhere. This prevents the gift card from becoming redundant. Considering these factors, the segment growth expected to remain significant in the following years. Currently, e-gifting market is still in its nascent stage and evolving at a rapid pace. It is expected to emerge as the fastest growing segment during the forecast period owing to its higher convenience. These cards can be sent instantaneously via e-mail thereby eliminating the concern of losing it, as in the case of physical gift cards.
