Mall Carts & Kiosks
Over the five years to 2018, the Mall Carts and Kiosks industry has pushed through difficult conditions. Declining mall traffic and rising external competition have threatened operators, which rely primarily on impulse purchases. Despite strong consumer spending and more aggressive tactics by shopping mall owners to earn revenue from underutilized spaces, the industry has struggled to maintain sales during the period. Over the five years to 2023, the industry will continue to battle through rising online competition and falling mall foot traffic. However, growing consumer spending driven by low unemployment and higher household income will help the industry, as will seasonal pop-up locations cashing in on higher consumer spending during peak seasonal periods.
This industry comprises establishments that retail various goods (excluding food) from kiosks and carts. Operators are most often located in indoor or outdoor malls or shopping areas. This industry also includes computer-based interactive or self-service kiosks.
