RBR’s Global EPOS and Self-Checkout is the only study providing reliable market and competitive analysis in each country.
The study uses a mix of primary and secondary research and an extensive in-house database of historical information to produce a product of unmatched quality. Primary research includes a detailed vendor survey backed up by telephone and face-to-face interviews with dozens of industry players.
Increasing competition from online players is prompting traditional retailers to re-imagine their store networks in every aspect, from size and scale to design and layout. The use of technology in stores has never been more important, enabling retailers to offer customers a range of checkout options which suits their preferences.
The latest research reveals that the EPOS market continued to recover after COVID-19, growing again in 2022. Investments in self-checkout technology remained at a high level across the world, with many retailers adding more terminals per store or starting rollouts for the first time.
The study forecasts how EPOS markets will evolve as the retail and hospitality sectors develop, taking into account the impact of alternative store technologies. The self-checkout market is diversifying, with the technology increasingly deployed by fuel convenience chains, home improvement firms and discounters. The technology itself is changing, with cashless units becoming more common, as well as the growing use of computer vision at terminals.
