Vending Machine Operators in the US

The Vending Machine Operators industry has struggled over the past decade.This decline has been primarily caused by decreasing per capita soda consumption and a rise in the healthy eating index. However, the decline was offset slightly by rising per capita disposable income, most notably in 2015 when the industry experienced growth. Additionally, a change in product mix toward healthier snacks, beverages and other food items, along with increasing use of technology, helped companies spur demand from new consumers. These gains were mitigated, however, by increasing competition from external competitors. Over the five years to 2022, industry revenue is estimated to continue declining.

Vending machine operators provide and service automated machines that sell merchandise, primarily snack foods and soft drinks, but also cigarettes, newspapers and other goods. This industry does not include revenue from soft drink producers that operate their own vending machines.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
