Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavios team said: The major end-users of these terminals are the retail sector. However, there are many small convenience stores worldwide, especially in APAC, and the terminals used in retails outlets are inappropriate at these small stores. To tap the sales in these outlets, vendors have introduced small-sized self-checkout terminals. With the introduction of these small-sized self-checkout terminals, vendors' revenue will increase during the forecast period and have a positive impact on the market.
According to the report, the need to minimize queues at checkout terminals boosts the demand for self-checkout terminals in retail outlasts. Vendors are seeing high demand from retail outlets worldwide for these terminals. Reduced labor costs through the deployment of these terminals are another factor attracting end-users.
Further, the report states that increased risk of theft or shoplifting is affecting the sales and deployment of self-checkout terminals and, in turn, the revenue of vendors. Lack of appropriate monitoring facilities, along with little or no human intervention in self-checkout terminals, has increased these risks.
