In the face of rising inflation and low growth prospects, there is a risk of a decline in real income for migrants in 2024. The weaker job markets, coupled with tech layoffs, are expected to impact the growth of the remittance market in the United States. Nike, Intel, and Citi are among those that have announced plans to cut jobs in 2024. This trend is projected to have a significant impact on migrants' income, thereby affecting the growth of the remittance industry over the medium term.

The United States, however, continues to be the largest source of remittances. India, Mexico, and the Philippines are among the top remittance recipient countries. To make the remittance process more convenient, US-based payment firms are entering into strategic partnerships and this trend is projected to gain further momentum in 2024, opening new remittance corridors. Consequently, despite short-term challenges, the publisher maintains a positive growth outlook for the remittance market over the next five years.

The surge in tech layoffs is expected to dampen the growth of the remittance market in the short term

Fears about recession, coupled with revenue growth, resulted in many firms announcing cost-cutting measures including mass layoffs in 2023. This trend is projected to continue further in the United States in Q1 2024.

  • Tech companies are cutting jobs at an increasing rate, with 23,670 workers laid off from 85 companies in January. This marks the highest number since March when almost 38,000 people were let go. The trend is gaining increasing momentum with SAP announcing changes affecting 8,000 employees, Microsoft cutting 1,900 positions in its gaming division, fintech startup Brex laying off 20% of its staff, and eBay slashing 1,000 jobs.
  • Tech giants like Google and Amazon have also confirmed layoffs. Amazon, for instance, eliminated hundreds of positions spanning MGM Studios, Twitch, and Prime Video divisions. Google also cut several hundred jobs across the firm. The cost-cutting measures have been taken in response to rising inflation, recession concerns, and interest rate hikes. The rising adoption of artificial intelligence is another factor that is aiding the mass layoff trend in the United States.

With the trend projected to continue in H1 2024, these mass layoffs, especially in the tech sector, are expected to have a major impact on the growth of the remittance industry in the United States.

Firms are entering into strategic partnerships to simplify remittances and launch new corridors

To provide migrants with a more convenient and instant remittance service, payment providers are forging strategic alliances in the United States market. These collaborations are expected to drive the competitive landscape over the medium term.

  • Visa and CIBC, in January 2024, entered into a strategic partnership to make it easier for the bank's customers to send money to their loved ones in different countries. Leveraging Visa Direct's money transfer features, CIBC and Simplii clients will soon have the option to send funds to digital wallets in important remittance destinations like the Philippines, China, Bangladesh, and Kenya. The new service is expected to be rolled out in H1 2024.
  • Alviere, in January 2024, also entered into a strategic collaboration with Onafriq to enable remittances from the United States to Africa. Onafriq has chosen Alviere as the strategic partner since it is a licensed money transmitter throughout the United States and its territories.

Going forward, the publisher expects more such strategic collaborations, resulting in the launch of new corridors while also enabling instant remittances. This, in turn, will support the growth of the remittance market in the United States over the next three to four years.
