The global self-checkout system market size was valued at USD 4.23 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 4.88 billion in 2023 to USD 13.98 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 16.2% during the forecast period.

The report's scope comprises various solutions and services offered by key players such as NCR Corporation, Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions, Hisense Systems Europe, Diebold Nixdorf Incorporated., and Qingdao CCL Technology Co., Ltd. Self-checkout machines allow customers to complete their transactions from a retailer without needing a traditional staffed checkout. Fujitsu Limited provides self-checkout machines, including FUJITSU Impulse self-service, U-Scan Genesis, U-Scan 6.0, and others. Similarly, NCR Corporation provides the FastLane Self-Service Checkout R6C model of the innovative SCO system. These systems offer retailers advanced scalability, flexibility, usability, and reliability. It facilitates faster payment processing and reduces wait time. Companies worldwide are deploying these checkout technologies to monitor and promote effective performance in the workplace.

Increasing demand for automation and cloud-based self-checkouts (SCOs) in the retail sector for cost and time efficiency drives the market. Major businesses in the market are implementing these advanced solutions across retail stores. For instance,

  • In March 2022, NCR Corporation provided cloud-based SCO to Bed Bath & Beyond, enabling an in-store self-checkout experience for the company. Bed Bath & Beyond is a chain of domestic merchandise retail stores. NCR self-checkout solutions aided Bed Bath & Beyond Company operating nationwide by integrating cloud-based SCO into its checkout approach.


Closure of Retail Stores and Lockdowns Hampered Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the market owing to the government’s mandatory restrictions and the closure of malls, shops, retail stores, and hypermarkets. The hardware supply chain was disturbed owing to lockdowns in several countries and difficulties in import-export activities for some time. These had a significant impact on the global manufacturing facilities of SCO systems.

In addition, digital payment companies show a decline in revenue owing to a lack of consumer spending in retail stores, convenience and hypermarkets, and many other sectors. For instance, in May 2020, UPI transactions processed around 2.53 billion in India declined by 4.16% and 7.32% in April and March 2020, respectively.

Rising Use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) based SCO Systems to Propel Market Growth

The increasing implementation of cloud-based and artificial intelligence (AI)-driven self-checkout solutions among retail, hospitality, and other merchants drives market growth. The rising popularity of AI-based services in systems is increasing demand in developed nations.

To remain competitive, several leading players in the market are incorporating cloud and AI-based self-checkout solutions. For instance,

Increased Penetration of Automation across Retail and Hospitality Industries to Drive the Market

Connectivity, digitization, and data are vital factors that propel digital transformation. To enhance customer satisfaction, businesses implement digitalization to produce new services and products. Self-checkout solutions assist customers with shopping and facilitate digital and contactless payments without needing retail staff. The implementation of cashless payment methods drives demand for checkout systems. These checkout systems are deployed to reduce wait time and provide an innovative shopping experience to customers. Furthermore, growing smartphone usage globally drives growth in cashless payments. Also, key players in the global market are collaborating to deploy SCO systems in retail stores. For instance,

Thus, cashless payment methods and rising automation are driving the market during the projected period.


Data Security Concerns are Expected to Impede Market Growth

SCO benefits many firms and businesses. However, there are some challenges for which enterprises must be prepared, such as data leakage, device faults, phishing attacks, software, and network defects. For instance,

•          There is a high possibility of cyber risks where data can be hacked in unsafe and unsecured networks. Data hackers can easily penetrate the data locations and access vital data and records such as customer business accounts' financial credentials. This can result in substantial financial loss and damage the reputation.

In addition, devices must be well-protected in a secured network. Thus, cyber threats and data breaches due to lack of security may impede global self-checkout system market growth.
