The global self-checkout system market size was valued at USD 4.88 billion in 2023. The market is projected to grow from USD 5.64 billion in 2024 to USD 18.01 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 15.6% 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.

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 offered a cloud-driven SCO to Bed Bath & Beyond, empowering self-checkout in the store experience for the firm. NCR self-checkout solutions help the company’s countrywide operations by incorporating cloud-driven SCO into its checkout methodology.

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the market owing to the government’s mandatory restrictions and the closure of malls, shops, retail stores, and hypermarkets. Also, digital payment companies showed a decline in their revenue owing to a lack of consumer spending in retail stores, convenience stores, hypermarkets, and many other sectors. These factors had a significant impact on the global manufacturing facilities of SCO systems.

Self-Checkout System Market Growth Factors

Increased Adoption of Automation across Retail and Hospitality Industries to Drive Market Growth

Connectivity, digitization, and data are vital factors that propel digital transformation. To improve customer experience, businesses are implementing digital technologies 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 the demand for checkout systems.

Self-checkout kiosks integrated with automated inventory management solutions ensure real-time inventory level updates. Such systems have the capability of self-ordering with the dealers, avoiding an out-of-stock condition.

These checkout systems are deployed to reduce wait time and provide an innovative shopping experience to customers. Furthermore, growing smartphone usage globally is driving the growth in cashless payments. Also, key players in the global market are collaborating to deploy SCO systems in retail stores. For instance,

  • In February 2024, Aldi, in collaboration with Grabango, installed a completely automated self-checkout system at a shop in suburban Chicago. The automated self-checkout system allows shoppers to leave without the need to scan their purchased items.

Thus, cashless payment methods and rising automation will drive the market during the projected period.


Data Security Concerns 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, and software & 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 financial credentials of customer business accounts. This can result in substantial financial loss and damage a company’s 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 the global self-checkout system market growth.
