The Asia Pacific Point of Sale (PoS) market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 18.1% during the forecast period. The global PoS market is projected to grow from USD 25.28 billion in 2022 to USD 81.15 billion by 2030.

Asia Pacific has a diverse and rapidly growing PoS market. According to our market research analysis, the region is anticipated to hold the highest CAGR among other regions during the forecast period. The market is primarily driven by increasing demand for digitalization, adoption of advanced payment technologies, and the growing popularity of e-commerce and m-commerce. The Asia Pacific Point of Sale market share is highly fragmented with many regional and local players competing against global players. Additionally, it is expected to continue to grow at a rapid pace due to increasing adoption of mobile payment methods, virtual reality, and cloud services.


Increasing Adoption of Contactless Payments to Drive the Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly accelerated the adoption of contactless payments in Asia Pacific. According to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), there was 28.6% increase in the number of Point of Sale terminals reaching 60.7 million and 39.3% increase in the deployment of Bharat Quick Response (BQR) codes, which reached 49.7 million. Additionally, the number of Automated Teller Machines (ATM) also increased from 2.39 million in 2021 to 2.48 million in 2022.

Various players in the market are integrating cashless and contactless PoS systems, using latest technologies to remain competitive.


Government Initiatives and Surging Electronic Payment Systems to Fuel the Market Growth

With the rising popularity of digital transactions, businesses in the region are rapidly adopting electronic payment systems to facilitate secure and convenient transactions. Furthermore, governments and leading bodies are taking steps to promote cashless transactions as part of their broader digitalization efforts, which is driving the adoption of PoS systems in the market.

Thus, the governing bodies are promoting cashless payments and taking digitization initiatives to enable the Point of Sale market growth.


Higher Implementation Costs and Lack of Infrastructure to Impede Market Growth

In some parts of the region, there is still a lack of infrastructure to support PoS systems such as reliable internet connectivity, or power supply. For instance, in rural areas, businesses may not have access to high-speed internet, which limits the usage of PoS systems. Additionally, higher implementation costs associated with the setting of these systems cause a significant barrier for small businesses with limited budgets.

Such factors hamper the deployment of Point of Sale (PoS) terminals, resulting in reduced market growth.
