Insights by Geography
In terms of unit shipments, the APAC fixed POS terminal market share is expected to reach over 53 million units in 2026. The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has relatively slowed down the APAC market growth in the first H1 2020. Retail segments are the primary adopters of fixed POS terminals, and the segment witnessed a decline of over 30% during the period. However, with the increasing popularity of contactless payments, the demand for NFC-ready fixed POS terminals is expected to grow. While modernization of payment systems in the APAC region is evolving, cash domination persists. With the changing technology and the emergence of innovative financial services, the trend of payment cards and e-wallets as payment options is growing. The contribution to card payments’ transaction value is low from rural regions due to the low awareness of digital payment systems. With the rising internet penetration, the digital economy is growing, which is driving the demand for POS terminals.
