Highest Growing Market
According to Stratistics MRC, the Point-of-Sale [POS] Terminal Market is accounted for $83.24 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $157.39 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 11.2% during the forecast period. An electronic device characterized as a point-of-sale (POS) terminal, which is controlled by a hardware system enables retail stores to accept card payments without using cash registers to read cards directly. Various businesses, including physical retail stores, hotels, transportation, petrol pump make substantial use of POS systems.
According to the analysis by Capgemini Financial Services 2020, the global volume of cashless transactions grew 14.1% from 2018 to 2019 to reach 708.50 billion.
Increasing demand for contactless and cashless payment
Safety, increased savings in accounts, improved money management and flexibility are some of the major benefits of going cashless which attract more customers. Customers can choose cashless payment methods because they can make various digital payments using their banking cards. To mark cashless transactions, users can store their card information in mobile wallets or digital payment apps. Since the COVID-19 epidemic has sparked, worries about the safety of conducting cash transactions, consumers and wholesalers are switching to contactless payment methods to reduce their risk of getting infected by the virus. The point-of-sale terminals industry is experiencing significant growth opportunities as a result of major companies starting to invest in POS terminals to enhance the consumer experience.
Data security concerns can impede the market growth
The global Point-of-Sale [POS] Terminal market expected to hinder growth during the forecast period as insecure networks are highly susceptible to data hacking. Hackers can quickly breach the infrastructure and gain access to vital information and documents, including the credit card information of clients' business accounts. Such data leaks can cause the company to incur significant financial losses and reputation damage.
Increase in Demand for POS Terminals in SMEs Sector
The global Point-of-Sale [POS] Terminal market is expected to drive growth during the forecast period as brand retail stores and a variety of hospitality-related businesses were the major places to use POS credit card machines. SMEs, on the other hand, are preferring to use these terminals in their companies. Mobile POS systems are widely used by small regional enterprises and micro-businesses in developing nations like China and India to manage their sales and inventory.
POS could become infected with bugs or viruses, just like any other internet-based system, which will prevent it from functioning. This might put a major strain in the work. Moreover, there are techniques to avoid this from happening, but there is still a small chance that it might occur again. If it does, fixing it could be expensive, and customers might stop buying till the problem is fixed.
The COVID-19 outbreak had a negative impact on the worldwide economy. Multiple nations implemented nationwide lockdowns and social distancing standards, which had a negative effect on various industries, including the point-of-sale terminal. However, economies are turning their attention from responding to the outbreak to economic recovery, and as a result, different growth opportunities are anticipated to take shape for the market players for point-of-sale terminals due to the rising demand for smooth shopping experiences and the rise in utilisation of smart payment solutions.
The hardware segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The hardware segment is expected to have a lucrative growth due to security risks, the majority of originally set up hardware for the market is built to facilitate efficient transactions. However, the forced distinction driven by the outbreak has accelerated the development of contactless payments with specific features for authentication. The addition of cameras and fingerprint sensors is forcing manufacturers to use larger form sizes, but industry advancements are also allowing them to become smaller in their pursuit of microelectronics.
The android-based segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Due to the adoption of wireless technologies in mobile handsets, cloud-based and Android POS devices, as well as these advancements, it is estimated that the android-based segment will experience the highest CAGR during the projection period.
Region with largest share:
The Asia Pacific region is estimated to witness a largest share of the global point-of-sale [POS] terminal market during the forecast period as the demand for POS terminals is being fueled by the adoption of debit and credit cards for point-of-sale payments. Additionally, regional market expansion is being fueled by expenditures made by vendors through innovation, strategic partnerships, and mergers and acquisitions. And also, developing new opportunities for the POS terminals market is the expansion of e-commerce in the region.
Region with highest CAGR:
North America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period due to the widespread knowledge of POS solutions among leading regional retailers, hotels and restaurants, as well as owners of small businesses. The industry in North America is also being driven by the adoption of cutting-edge payment technologies including Near-field Communication (NFC) and biometric payment cards.
