Covid-19 Scenario

  • The fuel card market witnessed significant growth in the past few years; however, due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the market witnessed a sudden downfall in the years 2020 and 2021. This was attributed to the implementation of lockdowns by governments in the majority of the countries and the shutdown of travel across the world to prevent virus transmission.
  • Remote work became a necessity to avoid virus transmission which in turn resulted in less vehicle and fuel usage. Furthermore, due to job losses consumers reevaluated their spending habits such as driving and fuel expenses. In addition, consumers preferred contactless fuel payments to avoid virus transmission during the COVID period.

The universal segment to maintain its leadership status throughout the forecast period

Based on type, the universal segment held the highest market share in 2022, accounting for nearly three-fifths of the global fuel cards market revenue and is estimated to rule the roost throughout the forecast timeframe. This is attributed to the fact universal card programs are increasingly focusing on expense management features, including detailed transaction categorization, real-time spending alerts, and integration with expense tracking and accounting software. However, the merchant fuel cards segment is projected to manifest the highest CAGR of 16.3% from 2023 to 2032. This is attributed to the fact that controlling operational costs is crucial for businesses in the merchant segment. Fuel card solutions offer the opportunity to monitor and manage fuel expenses, contributing to cost control. Moreover, continual innovation in fuel card technology, such as incorporating AI and IoT for predictive maintenance and fuel optimization, can open new opportunities for efficiency and cost savings in the merchant segment.     

The fuel refill segment to maintain its leadership status throughout the forecast period

Based on application, the fuel refill segment held the highest market share in 2022, accounting for more than two-fifths of the global fuel cards market revenue and is estimated to maintain its leadership status throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to the fact that advanced data analytics tools are being integrated into fuel card technology to provide users with insights into fuel consumption, spending patterns, and cost-saving opportunities. Data-driven solutions are highly valued in the fuel refill segment. Furthermore, the overall shift toward digital payments is a significant growth factor. However, the toll charge segment is projected to manifest the highest CAGR of 18.4% from 2023 to 2032. This is attributed to the fact that fuel card providers are incorporating contactless payment features for tolls to meet this demand. In addition, businesses with fleets are continually expanding, and they seek integrated solutions that cover various expenses, including fuel and tolls.

Europe to maintain its dominance by 2032

Based on region, Europe held the highest market share in terms of revenue in 2022, accounting for nearly two-fifths of the global fuel cards revenue and is likely to dominate the market during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to a shift toward digital solutions, including mobile apps and online platforms, that enhance the user experience and provide real-time access to fuel-related data. However, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 17.1% from 2023 to 2032, because the countries in the region are increasingly emphasizing sustainability and environmentally friendly practices. Fuel card programs in the region are aligning with these trends by promoting cleaner fuels and offering incentives for eco-friendly driving.
