Key Growth Drivers of the POS Terminal Market

  • Rise in Demand for Mobile POS Terminals – Mobile point of sale (mPOS) refers to specialized wireless devices such as tablets and smartphones that are capable of functioning as an electronic point-of-sale terminal or cash register. The implementation of mPOS allows the sales and service industries to conduct financial transactions at any place, owing to mobility, improved customer experience, and saving of space. Furthermore, according to custom research by HP company, till 2018, 3% of enterprise merchants have fully deployed an mPOS solution, and 86% of companies are either currently in the process of implementing or are planning to implement mPOS in the next two years. Thus, the anticipated demand for mPOS is expected to drive the POS terminals market during the forecast period.
  • Enhanced Customer Experience and Low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) as Compared to Conventional Channels of Payment – Advanced POS technology competes with older point-of-sale systems such as PC cash drawers (PCCD) and cash registers. Retailers are seeking ways to update the legacy checkout systems in order to enhance customer service and operational efficiency. Retailers have realized that even a small cost reduction could lead to significant improvements in the bottom-line of their businesses. The advent of advanced payment technologies such as NFC and Europay, Master Card, and Visa (EMV) and an increase in the adoption of payment options such as debit and credit cards have played a role in boosting demand for POS terminals. Furthermore, many of the terminals currently installed do not have the capacity to be upgraded and will require replacement, which is likely to boost the market.

Key Challenges Faced by POS Terminal Market Players

According to a recent study (2018) by the Electronic Transaction Association, better data security is the number one priority for customers. POS systems handle critical information, and they are often exPOSed to the risk of security breaches. Every POS system needs to connect with an external network. The type of network connection depends on the store or retailer. While small businesses connect their POS systems via cellular data connections, larger businesses connect their systems with the help of their internal network. POS terminal systems can be managed remotely via these internal networks. This may result in theft/loss of important information such as credit card numbers. Although adopting mobile POS terminal solutions has significant advantages, there are various regulatory, operational, and technical challenges. For instance, reliability of services is hampered, owing to poor network connectivity.
