      Self-Service Kiosk Market Research 2023-v16 Jan2023

      Need Some Numbers?

      There are many reports with many numbers and most of them are from research data firms trying to make a buck.  We have seen good reports, bad reports, and even done our own reports. Here is what the Kiosk Industry Group will say.

      • Kiosk industry number — U.S market for self-service kiosks is valued at $10.4 billion in 2022. It is projected the self-service kiosks market in the U.S. will grow at a CAGR of 15% to reach $16 billion by 2025. [Kiosk Industry Group 2022]
        • Definitions. Here are some.
        • ATMs do not count (bitcoin kiosks do count)
        • Supermarket checkout platforms do not count
        • Conventional vending does not count
        • Market dollars for enclosures (kiosks) and software are two different numbers that must be combined.
        • Retrofits and replacements are a big deal these days
        • Ditto for shipping, service, warranty
        • Figure 3,000,00 “kiosks”  operational a year and/or delivered
        • Projections Caveat –  India datamarts put out a ton of reports on whatever is trending on Google and then sell them for $2500 to $5000.  There are also financial research firms that are primarily funded by large companies with vested interests.
        • What about data mart numbers for digital signage?  See below but they are up to 37 Billion.

      • The workforce shortage will continue and that will drive self-service options for customers.
      • And even more so this year for employees and robotics are gaining traction.
      • Face-enabled contactless transactions will easily triple
      • The main media will always focus on high-value/high-click targets such as Walmart, Aldi, Krogers and Mcdonald’s
      • New technology will become more widely available-to and deployed in small and medium and medium business. Cloud services help aggregate those offerings and become a viable distribution channel.
