The global self-checkout systems market grew at a CAGR of around 14% during 2014-2019. Self-checkout systems refer to mechanical and technological solutions that enable shoppers to scan, bag and pay for their purchases without human assistance in retail outlets. They allow the customer to process their purchases by themselves without requiring support from a cashier. The system consists of a touch-screen panel, barcode scanner to scan and record the codes of the products, basket stand, weighing scale and cash and card payment module. It offers various benefits, such as reduced waiting time for the customers and instances of cart abandonment, optimal utilization of resources and enhanced operational flexibility.
Rapid urbanization, along with increasing automation in the retail sector, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the emerging trend of unmanned store concepts, especially in developing countries, is stimulating the market growth. In line with this, there is a shift in the consumer preference for touch-free transactions across the entertainment sector, such as in casinos, museums, movie theaters, sports arenas and theme parks, which is creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, self-checkout systems offer enhanced security features, intuitive consumer interfaces, cashless transaction facilities and multi-item scanning facilities, thereby increasing their demand across convenience/departmental stores, hypermarkets, and supermarkets. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the integration of radio frequency identification (RFID) and near-field communication (NFC) systems in self-checkout machines, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. RFID readers can automatically read labels on the products and add them to the cart to proceed with the purchase. Other factors, including the increasing demand for a personalized and assisted shopping experience, along with the utilization of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning-based systems, are anticipated to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global self-checkout systems market to continue its strong growth during the next five years.
