Global POS Terminals Market Overview
Point of Sale (POS) terminals are a collection of systems used to process quick and easy payment options for customers at retail and hospitality locations among others. A customer's debit or credit card is scanned with the help of the terminal, with the equipment transferring financial funds from the customer's account to the seller's after verification.
The Global POS Terminals Market was worth $XX billion in 2018 and is forecasted to reach $XX billion by 2026, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period.
Global POS Terminals Market - Market Dynamics
The growth of e-commerce and retail sales in emerging countries and the resulting POS transactions would positively influence the market scenario. The rise in the adoption of POS terminals and an increase in cashless transactions will also positively boost the market. The growing trend of purchasing consumer goods through card payments would also propel market growth during the forecast period, owing to the high product adoption in all significant retail and commercial outlets. The companies are thus focused on providing payment services in such outlets. For instance, in February, 2019, Wirecard AG has integrated Alipay as a payment method in the department stores operated by Stockmann, which offers fashion, beauty, home, and food products as part of its product portfolio in its eight department stores and online sites in Finland and the Baltics.
The uncertainty surrounding the safety and security of transactions through card payments and instances of fraudulent practices on POS terminals might hamper the market growth prospects, owing to the consumer distrust in the payment method and slow adoption in commercial purchases.

Based on product type, the global market for POS Terminals is broadly segmented as Fixed POS Terminals and Mobile POS Terminals.
The fixed POS terminal segment is leading by overall market share owing to the higher adoption rate and growing demand in emerging economies. However, the mobile POS terminals are gaining market traction owing to the convenience of payments and connected services through POS terminals and payment banks. The companies recognize the trend and are focused on the launch of associated services. For instance, in February 2019, Wirecard AG implemented a unique and innovative mobile application, Well.com app in Romania, which allows biometric authentication payment by fingerprint.
The market is further segmented by end-user into retail, hospitality, and others. The retail sector is the leading segment owing to intense competition among companies involved and the adoption of advanced technologies to maintain a competitive edge over others. The additional advantages of faster checkout and less congestion leading to better management are the primary factors which would propel the segment growth during the forecast period.
