The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Self-Checkout Systems Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” finds that the global self-checkout systems market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. Self-checkout systems refer to the process of paying for one’s item via a self-service checkout machine in a retail setting. They allow customers to process their purchases from a retailer instead of the conventional cashier-staffed checkout system. Self-checkout systems consist of touchscreen panels, barcode scanners, basket stands, weighing scales, and payment modules. The process involves using an easy and basic interface that can be used by anyone with ease. Self-checkout systems offer various advantages such as reduced labor costs, decreased waste items, efficient pre-order, and bulky purchases. They also provide various payment options, including credit and mobile payments, making transactions simpler for foreign and local customers.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
Global Self-Checkout Systems Market Trends:
The market is primarily driven by the increasing retail consumers and their waiting time during the checkout process. Besides this, the inflating labor costs and shortage of skilled laborers have led to an ongoing transformation in the retail sector to reduce costs and increase productivity. This has led to the integration of automation in the sector and the emerging trend of unmanned stores. For instance, Fujitsu’s U-Scan and Impulse self-checkout systems include themes, customer personalization, and charitable donation applications to help retailers maximize their merchandise, promote brand presence, and increase advertisement space in the store. In addition to this, self-checkout systems are gaining preference with the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. This has resulted in the introduction of touch-free, cashless transactions and the utilization of AI and machine learning systems that can scan all the products instantly and direct consumers for payments. On account of these factors, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
