Summary

Payroll cards are becoming increasingly widespread in the UAE, driven by the government-mandated wages protection system (WPS). The UAEs banking structure, albeit fragmented, is a mixture of both private and public banks. Jebel Ali, one of the mid-market malls in the UAE, is considered a pioneer of the prepaid cards industry in the country. Saudi Arabias young population is driving considerable investment into the countrys prepaid cards market which provides the potential for youth-targeted prepaid cards. The market for prepaid cards in Saudi Arabia was found to be negligible with a minimal percentage of prepaid gift cards in supply. The country has a healthy influx of tourists for the Islamic holy cities such as Mecca, Jeddah and Riyadh. Tourist prepaid cards are expected to drive the Saudi Arabian market. 

On the other hand, the prepaid card market in Egypt is still in its developmental stages. The market received support in 2008 and 2009 when the government made concerted efforts to increase the penetration rates of e-banking across the country. However, the market was adversely affected by the uprisings against the Hosni Mubarak government in early 2011. At present there are a small number of prepaid card programs in Egypt, primarily offered by banks.
