Cashing up: Improving economic conditions are expected to support industry recovery

Participants in the Banks industry provide retail and commercial banking services, such as accepting deposits and providing loans. The financial crisis significantly altered the dynamics of Ireland's banking sector. Prior to the crisis, the industry had heavy exposure to property and mortgage sectors. However, a faltering property market led to a slump in demand for home loans, while weak economic conditions caused a drag in demand for personal and business loans. The lingering effects of the crisis continue to affect industry operations, with banks being subject to an increasingly stringent regulatory environment, as well as having to pay off their bad debts.Over the five years through 2019, industry revenue is expected to decrease at a compound annual rate more.
