NEW DATA: Retail Kiosks — The Next Billion-Dollar Industry

State of Unattended Kiosk and Retail Market 2018

The age of unattended retail has arrived apparently.

New story and report from PYMNTS.com in conjunction with USA Technologies.

According to research inside the Kiosk and Retail Report, a USA Technologies collaboration, the interactive kiosk industry market will be worth $1.073 billion. They note the industry has already experienced some impressive growth, with the U.S. market growing from $533.37 million in 2013 to $716.97 million in 2016.

That increase is due, at least in part, to a 42 percent increase in American imports of interactive kiosks that took place during the same timeframe. Electric vehicle-charging kiosks also powered growth in the space, as those kiosks saw the largest growth of any type from 2013 to 2016, with the number of kiosks in the field growing by 153 percent.

Other key takeaways from the Kiosk and Retail Report, a USA Technologies collaboration, include:

  • Food and beverage kiosks are the most common kind of kiosks in the U.S., accounting for a combined 35 percent of machines in the field as of 2016.
  • Clothing retail lags behind when it comes to kiosk deployment. The market shipped only 21,000 machines in 2016, the smallest of any of the 11 markets PYMNTS studied.
  • More growth in the vehicle-charging kiosk market is coming down the road. The space is projected to grow at a CAGR of 22.29 percent through 2019, the highest of the 11 markets studied.

About the Report

The new Kiosk and Retail Report, a USA Technologies collaboration, is designed to give readers a better understanding of how these emerging technologies are shaping the unattended retail market. It focuses on the ever-evolving world of unattended retail, including those selling items and services consumers never thought they could get without help from a human, and includes market analysis and a look at how new payment technologies are changing the shopping experience.

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–At the National Retail Federation’s (NRF) BIG Show 2018, Samsung Electronics America, Inc. is spotlighting several new solutions to help retailers harness the power of data to design and deliver an enhanced, more intelligent customer experience. Central to this year’s introductions at Samsung’s NRF booth (#1862) is Samsung Connected Spaces, an all-in-one Pop-Up store solution that gives brick-and-mortar retailers a platform to create a Pop-Up store infused with data collection and analysis capabilities.

Pop-Up stores let retailers activate short-term physical retail opportunities, such as seasonal trends or product launches. Samsung Connected Spaces delivers an Internet of Things (IoT)-ready solution that provides retailers with data and insight on key store factors – including customer traffic, dwell time, and demographics (age & gender) – that can be measured for specific times and areas in a store.

This enables retailers to better understand the customer journey from entrance to purchase, and use the information for Pop-Up store layout, product placement, staff scheduling and inventory management. According to Forrester Research, in 2017, 47% of surveyed commerce technology influencers are continuing or increasing investments in in-store analytics.[1]
