A vending machine is a standalone automated device that dispenses small-sized products in exchange for tokens or cash. It is used for dispensing food products, such as packaged snacks, chocolate bars, cupcakes, pizzas, hot and cold beverages and candies. They are also used for providing toys, newspapers, cigarettes and tickets. The products are loaded into the machine and are available for purchase throughout the day. The machine dispenses the product corresponding to the item number or button selected by the consumer. It also consists of bill and coin validators, computer control boards, refrigeration units and lighting systems to automate the vending process and provide a seamless experience to the user. As a result, vending machines are widely used in public spaces, commercial complexes, restaurants and hotels.

Vending Machine Market Trends:
Significant growth in the retail industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the increasing requirement for automated product distribution systems across airports, hospitals, school canteens, railway and petrol stations and industrial plants is providing a thrust to the market growth. Various technological advancements, such as the development of reverse vending machines (RVM), are acting as other growth-inducing factors.
