  • How Much is the Market Growing
    • How much is the U.S. payments market growing? It depends. It depends on the time period, the calculation, the definition of growth, and the data set. TSG has prepared a collection of growth rates from an aggregation of public sources (left chart) and TSG’s AIM database of 3.7M card accepting merchants (right charts).  One thing is for sure – the industry is healthy.
  • ISV Long Tail Analysis – Health & Beauty Space
  • Performance of Public Payments Companies
  • Google Trends – Card Networks
    • While Visa and Mastercard dominate the U.S. payment network market, a major reason search results trend below other networks is likely the fact that Visa and Mastercard do not have a direct relationship with the consumer market (i.e. the relationship is with the cardholder’s bank); whereas PayPal, American Express, and Discover do have direct consumer relationships, which will drive more consumer web searches.
