Report Overview

The global medical kiosk market size was valued at USD 1.1 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.8% from 2022 to 2030. Medical kiosks are computerized units that perform a variety of functions, ranging from simple check-in to medication dispensing and health examination to virtual physician consultation. The industry is growing as AI-enabled kiosks gain popularity in the healthcare industry. In 2019, Ping An Good Doctor, a leader in the Chinese health-tech market, stretched its AI-based "One-Minute Clinics" to eight Chinese cities and provinces. The local community reacted positively to the single booth placed in a public space. In addition to being located in pharmacies and communities, "one-minute booths" have also been installed in businesses, including the Shanghai Volkswagen plant.

The implementation of health ATMs in hospitals can reduce the facility's expenses. Self-check-ins eliminate the need for the hospital to use paper, file the forms, and search through stacks of paperwork to locate a patient's information. In addition, it allows nurses to dedicate more time to patient care rather than administrative tasks.

For instance, inpatient expenditures of the Alliance for Integrated Care of New York (AICNY) decreased by 6% over the first three quarters of 2018. The installation of tele-triage kiosks in group homes for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities decreased ER visits by 11% and hospital admissions by 7%. Patients who utilize telemedicine kiosks are 80% less likely to visit the emergency room.

The rising prevalence of chronic diseases and shortage of physicians is creating a burden on the current healthcare workforce. The deployment of telemedicine solutions can help to address these challenges. Health kiosks can be used for virtual check-ups and consultations. This will reduce the work burden of physicians and help in significant cost savings.

It offers efficient and actionable solutions to the daily challenges faced by the healthcare industry, including increased waiting times, decreased patient satisfaction, and obsolete access control. According to a survey published at the National Center for Biotechnology Information, 96% of participants who completed a kiosk visit were satisfied with its use as an alternative to care, resulting in a decrease of 128 direct visits.

Rising government and private investment and CSR activities contribute to adopting health ATMs. For instance, in November 2020, Tata Trusts set up the Swasth Chandrapur, screening and awareness kiosk at the Government Medical College, Chandrapur. It will provide a free screening of diabetes, hypertension, breast, cervical and oral cancer, along with routine health check-ups for IPD and OPD patients.

COVID-19 Medical kiosk market impact: 10.4% increase from 2020 to 2021

Pandemic Impact

Post COVID Outlook

Telemedicine solutions were increasingly utilized during the pandemic, as hospitals and clinics focused on keeping non-urgent cases out of facilities to avoid the spread of infection. Consequently, individuals become more at ease using alternative healthcare methods such as health kiosks to communicate with a physician.

Post-pandemic, medical kiosks will play a crucial role in reorganizing the operations of hospitals and healthcare facilities. Thus, systems, such as 24/7 pharmacy kiosks, will occupy space in every healthcare facility in the world, ensuring minimum human-to-human interaction.

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Elephant Kiosks (UK) developed the COVID-19 Reception Kiosk, which served as the initial point of contact for visitors and personnel in care homes, offices, schools, and other public locations. It provides a COVID-19 questionnaire, contactless temperature checks, and email alerts to managers or the front desk. It complies with infection control recommendations and can be used to facilitate contact tracing.

The COVID pandemic has accelerated the adoption by numerous facilities, which is anticipated to stimulate growth in the coming years. In India, for instance, the telehealth startup Docty intends to install 100 digital healthcare kiosks. Docty plans to expand its operations across Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and Bihar, including all tier-3 cities and surrounding villages, from 2022-23.


The increasing adoption of digital health is anticipated to render high growth to the market. With the digitization of medical records, health ATMs can be utilized to retain patient information and reduce administrative time. Advancements in telemedicine platforms have boosted the shift of patients from conventional healthcare settings to out-of-hospital settings. Health kiosks are being increasingly deployed at various locations such as retail stores, pharmacies, offices, railway stations, and others. Thus, the growing number of installations in out-of-hospital settings is fueling the market growth.

The payment kiosk segment is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Acceptance of payments using biometrics and facial recognition through hospital kiosks has emerged as an important trend driving the growth of the segment. Furthermore, with the advent of 5G, hospitals will be able to process payments faster.

The specialty clinics segment is projected to witness considerable growth during the forecast period. The segment includes clinics such as sexual health and cancer clinics, where patients are referred from primary care and hospital department outpatient clinics. EDs are acute care centers, including accidents and EDs within hospitals. According to a study published in NCBI, sexual health was the most frequent condition handled by kiosks installed in specialty clinics. It is followed by breastfeeding, cancer, chronic kidney disease, HIV, mental health, and others.

Regional Insights

North America held the largest revenue share in 2021. This is due to the strategic presence of major players, technological advancements, and growing demand for digital health. According to the 2020 Kiosk Marketplace Census Report, more than 50% of hardware manufacturers are based in the U.S. North America is regarded as the growth center for new technology-driven enterprise business models due to its start-up ecosystem and the rapid adoption of technology solutions by regional players. This is anticipated to provide growth opportunities in the region.

Medical Kiosk Market Trends by Region

Europe accounted for the second largest market share in 2021. The rising prevalence of chronic diseases, strong government support, and increasing demand for virtual consultations are poised to surge the market. This region's robust economy is one of the primary reasons for implementing kiosk technology and its various applications. 

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional industry owing to the increasing government investment in IT infrastructure and the growing number of digital health startups in the region. For instance, in September 2021, Fullerton Health, a provider of enterprise healthcare solutions, launched a telemedicine kiosk to support migrant workers in Singapore. This medical kiosk automatically dispenses medicines to users after the doctor signs the prescription in a remote consultation.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The market is highly fragmented with the presence of various players.
