Till 2030, the retail category, under segmentation by application, will continue dominating the mPOS terminals market, due to the high adoption rate of the point-of-sale technology by retailers. The technology cuts the queues and helps retailers in capturing sales quickly, while customers can avoid standing in line and complete the transaction from wherever they are in a large store. For instance, Walmart Inc. deployed such systems in 350 of its U.S. stores, in 2018, for on-the-spot check-out.
During the historical period (2014–2019), Asia-Pacific (APAC) contributed the highest revenue to the mPOS terminals market, and the situation will be the same in the coming years. This is attributed to the swift urbanization in the region, which is leading to the growth of the retail, hospitality, and healthcare sectors. Additionally, the retail sector of the region is the largest in the world, and it accounts for the widest adoption of mobile POS terminals in APAC.
Cloud-Based Mobile POS Systems Are Trending in the Market
A key trend in the mPOS terminals market is the preference for cloud-based solutions. Compared to conventional systems, the cloud-deployed point-of-sale variants entail considerably lower operational costs, because they have no requirement for on-site servers, which are quite expensive. As per Mckinsey & Company Inc., the adoption of cloud technologies in the retail sector would rise to 71% by the end of 2020 from 57% in 2018. Another study says that by 2022, almost 50% of the restaurants in the U.S. would be using cloud-based POS terminals. Such solutions let users centralize all the data at one place and access it securely from anywhere and streamline information management.
Focus on Enhanced Customer Experience Is Driving the Market

Due to the fact that check-out queues at markets and large stores often lead to the wastage of customers’ time, mobile POS solutions are being adopted. This way, customers can complete the sale right from the main product area in a shop, by paying for the goods digitally and avoiding the long queues. Such solutions lead to a higher customer satisfaction, which further builds brand trust and loyalty, which is why companies are rapidly migrating from conventional systems to tablet and smartphone POS.
Expanding Restaurant Industry Is Offering Market Growth Potential
A lucrative opportunity area, which the mPOS terminals market players can target, is the increasing number of restaurants across the globe. For instance, the restaurant sector in India grew by 10% from 2017, to reach $48 billion in 2018. Additionally, the food service domain, which generated $47.7 billion in 2017, is predicted to experience a healthy CAGR of 5.1% during 2018–2023. By providing the restaurant staff with handheld mobile POS terminals, orders can be taken at the table, and diners don’t have to wait in long queues, which further betters the customer experience. Customers being able to order the food and receive it quickly also lets restaurants serve more diners in quick time, thus helping augment revenue.
