As America continues to struggle with an economy in hyper-flux, the private label card industry has stabilized the free-fall seen in the 2007-2010 period, setting the stage for future growth. With essentially all portfolios now being managed by third parties, improved credit quality and declining charge-offs, and indicators that consumer retail sales are picking up, issuers and retailers are focusing on their respective strengths moving forward.

There will still be hiccups in a return to growth but Packaged Facts forecasts receivables for private label card programs to reach $152 billion by 2015. While not to the levels seen pre-recession of $156 billion in 2007, the market should be cautiously optimistic. The future will still see many challenges but hopefully the good kind - such as how to integrate mobile technologies in to private label programs.
