Vending Machine Market Trends:

Increasing Convenience

The rising preference for quick and hassle-free transactions is primarily driving the market for vending machines across the globe. These machines offer a seamless shopping experience by providing 24*7 access to numerous consumer products, eventually eliminating the need for human interaction. In addition to this, the growth in the expansion of commercial spaces, such as retail, hotels & lodging, and manufacturing facilities across various parts of the world, is creating significant demand for vending machines. For instance, in July 2021, Hindustan Unilever (HUL), a major FMCG brand, launched an in-store vending machine, Smart Fill, for its home care products. The company has installed these machines at Reliance Smart Acme Mall in Mumbai as a pilot project. Similarly, various other companies from diverse industries are expanding by installing vending machines across different parts of the world. For instance, in May 2022, RVM Systems, a Swedish vending machine company, announced that it would install a range of reverse vending machines that can consume 100 containers simultaneously in Singapore. The primary objective of these machines is to encourage people to dispose of unwanted plastic bottles and responsibly drink cans. These machines also dispense shopping rewards, ActiveSG credits, and other incentives.

Technological Advancements

The integration of advanced technologies has transformed traditional vending machines into smart, interactive devices. Cashless payment systems, such as contactless cards, mobile wallets, and digital currencies, offer convenience and security to consumers. Looking at the vending machine market statistics and the increasing demand for contactless payment systems, various connected vending machine manufacturers are introducing new products, and they are also receiving multiple orders for installations. For instance, in 2023, Tao Bin, a smart beverage vending machine in Thailand that takes orders via touch panel and accepts mobile payment options, announced its plan to expand business by completing 6000 units in railway stations and apartment buildings across the country. Additionally, various manufacturers have started reshaping their products by launching more innovative connected vending machines. For instance, in April 2023, Daalchini Technologies, a food tech startup firm in India, successfully placed IoT-enabled vending machines for retail business at various sites that include schools, colleges, hospitals, and railway stations to provide people with access to fresh, healthy meals. Moreover, considering the fast-paced lifestyle of working professionals, the vending machine providers are also focusing on developing innovative products. For instance, in March 2022, Newport Centre Mallin, New Jersey, in the United States, installed the first 'RoboBurger outlet. The recently installed outlet is a 12ft-square box containing a robotic system that cooks and serves customers fresh beef burgers in just six minutes. Such initiatives are anticipated to propel the vending machine market share in the coming years. 

Availability of Diverse Product Range

The vending machines market has experienced notable growth in its product offerings, catering to a diverse range of consumer preferences. Initially focused on snacks and drinks, vending machines now provide a wide range of products, including fresh food, healthy snacks, personal care items, electronics, and even prescription medications. Moreover, the inflating spending power of consumers, along with their elevating lifestyles, is also contributing to the market growth. For instance, According to Census.gov, in December 2021, the United States spent an estimated US$ 626.8 billion on variations, holidays, and trading days. This was a decrease of 1.9% from the previous month but an increase of 16.9% from the previous year. Furthermore, the growing need for automated product distribution systems in airports, hospitals, school canteens, railways, and gas stations is propelling the industry forward. For instance, as of January 2022, Farmer's Fridge, a Chicago-based company, installed 178 machines vending salads, bowls, and other healthier fares in hospitals and airports. It has 118 machines in hospitals and 60 in airports. Besides this, the government authorities of various nations are taking the initiative to develop smart cities, which is further bolstering the installation of smart vending machines. For instance, various governments in the American region are also promoting the adoption of smart cities. For instance, Las Vegas is testing three pilot projects, with the government allocating US$ 500 Million to find ways to connect the entire city by 2025. Such initiatives by the government are projected to increase the vending machine market revenue in the years to come.
