Self-checkout System Market: Regional Insights

The regional market for self-checkout systems is being driven by the presence of numerous grocery and supermarket chains and the growing transformation of retail inside stores.

The expansion of the regional segment was aided by the growing use of self-checkout systems by supermarkets and hypermarkets in the United States and Canada. The primary cause of the unfilled job gap in the United States is employee demand for a more competitive pay scale. As a result, demand for self-checkout systems is growing across all physical store formats.

In order to provide customers with a seamless shopping experience, retail establishments in the region are expanding through hyper local offerings and increasingly incorporating Omni channel strategies. Other factors that contribute to regional growth include an increase in household expenses, a decrease in household size, rapid urbanization, an increase in disposable income, and the adoption of advanced technology.

For instance, in June 2021, the Japan-based Toshiba Corporation teamed up with World line, a French multinational payment and transactional services provider, to help the former company launch its Pro-X Hybrid Kiosk, which provides a point-of-sale terminal with greater adaptability. The kiosk is both a self-checkout station and a traditional register. Through this partnership, the solution was launched with the intention of increasing market share.

Self-checkout System Market Drivers:

Increase in checkout speed

Many end-use sectors such as restaurants and retail are focused on faster checkout speeds, in order to provide effective service to a large volume of customers. Faster, simpler, and more efficient checkouts result in a superior user experience. For a retailer, it translates into less checkout abandonment and more conversions. Furthermore, a faster checkout system is designed to return customers that reduce fields, in order to ensure a faster checkout process. Self-checkout systems offer an efficient and faster checkout service with a standardized experience on different devices. It also enables customers to keep purchasing without migrating away from shopping platforms. Thus, these factors are expected to drive the growth of the global self-checkout system market during the forecast period.

Reduction in operational cost

Another advantage of implementing a self-checkout system is reduced operational costs. For retailers and restaurant owners, keeping the operational cost to a minimum is crucial without compromising the quality of service. Since there is no cashier at every register, self-checkout systems reduce labor costs. In fact, one employee can monitor around 6-10 self-service checkout systems easily. This, in turn, allows stores and restaurants to handle traffic spikes and service more customers during their busy schedules. In the long-term, it reduces overall operational cost, making the business more profitable and efficient. Therefore, these factors are expected to propel the global self-checkout system market growth over the forecast period.

Self-checkout System Market Opportunities:

Rising demand from convenient as well as specialty and retail stores

There has been a massive demand for self-checkout systems, particularly in specialty, retail, and convenience stores. These stores process a vast volume of customers and it can increase during festivals and busy hours. Therefore, a faster and more efficient platform is required to provide more improved service. Furthermore, these systems can offer cashless transactions, which eventually accelerates the speed of purchasing.

Emerging concept of unmanned stores

Many countries have started adopting the innovative concept of unmanned stores, especially in China. These stores typically rely on artificial intelligence and smartphone-related technologies to replace conventional features in a store. Such stores have been opened in the U.S. and China on an experimental basis, to test their proficiency. For instance, in May 2019, Amazon announced to open its first unmanned store Amazon Go in New York U.S. These stores are rapidly adopting self-checkout systems since they serve the purpose of ‘no manual intervention’.( Amazon is a vast Internet-based enterprise that sells books, music, movies, housewares, electronics, toys, and many other goods, either directly or as the middleman between other retailers and Amazon’s millions of customers).

Global Self-checkout System Market- Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

According to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on the self-checkout system market is moderately high. The supply, production cycles, employees are highly impacted due to nationwide lockdowns. Furthermore, the closure of restaurants and physical stores around the globe due to imposed lockdown will also impact the industry growth. However, changes in consumer shopping habits in response to the COVID-19 pandemic will encourage industries to deploy touchless or robust self-checkout options in stores. According to the data published by Shekel Brainweigh Ltd., a provider of weighing technologies in April 2020, in the U.S., two-thirds of consumers are using self-checkout, touchless self-checkout or frictionless micro-markets to pay for groceries, while less than one-third of respondents are ordering groceries online.

According to the same source, a typical store with 25% of its sales value processed through a fixed self-checkout system can witness additional stock losses of 0.25% of sales value. As a result, many retailers are hesitant about the adoption of these systems. Therefore, these factors are expected to hamper the global self checkout system market growth over the forecast period.
