The global self-service technology market size was valued at USD 34.03 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.8% over the forecast period. Varied technological advancements, such as remote management and wireless communication, are estimated to facilitate growth. Integrating biometric security services, including fingerprint recognition, that ensures secured financial transactions is expected to drive the industry growth. These technologies enable customers to produce a service independent of direct service employee involvement.
Increasing demand for self-service machines and automated devices, wireless communication, technology advancements, and remote management are the major factors driving the demand for Self-service Technology (SST). Additionally, the increasing influx of consumers in retail stores and the growing consumption of goods and services purchased in stores play a critical role in the growing demand. The booming retail industry across emerging economies is projected to offer numerous opportunities for growth over the next seven years.
Furthermore, widespread awareness about the benefits of these machines, such as ease of check-in and check-out process, reduction in congestion, and improvement in customer experience across the retail, airport, and banking applications, is estimated to impact the demand positively. Besides urban areas, the manufacturers and service providers are now aiming at rural areas to enhance further self-service technology industry growth. For instance, in 2019, Karnataka Gramin Bank, an India-based rural banking service provider sponsored by Canara Bank of India, deployed mobile ATMs in Ballari, Kalaburagi, and Gulbarga districts of Karnataka.
The energy management and power consumption regulations imposed on different regions may curb demand. The government of various regions restricted the usage of food and beverage vending machines in many places, such as schools and colleges, thereby limiting the demand for these machines. As a result, manufacturers began introducing and promoting energy-conserving vending machines that provide added value benefits and contribute to society. These energy-saving vending machines consume less power and help in energy conservation in comparison to previous models. For instance, the refrigerated vending machines that are certified as ENERGY STAR save approximately 1,000 kWh annually and are 40% more energy efficient.
The growing adoption of mobile devices, connected systems, and digital platforms is revolutionizing customer shopping experiences across digital and physical reality. From convenience stores to food and beverage retail formats, all are increasingly adopting self-service technologies to provide customers with a personalized experience. These intelligent technologies offer enhanced customer support in real-time. Furthermore, the need for workforce optimization and to reduce overhead costs is influencing verticals such as banking, travel and hospitality, retail, and healthcare to adopt automated and intelligent technologies.
The COVID-19 pandemic has radically shifted consumer and business behavior. With the radical change in consumer behavior with increased distancing and stringent regulations, businesses are forced to stop their operations and, thus, limit their spending on opportunistic technologies. Despite the short-term social lockdown impact, the increased demand for groceries, medical supplies, general merchandise, and home improvement among shoppers forced businesses to adopt self-assisted technologies to promote social distancing and zero-touch practices. Furthermore, limited workforce availability due to lockdown and initiation of traveling and transportation has also led to the extensive adoption of self-service checkout systems.
The ATM segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 58.4% in 2022. Despite the rise in new avenues of digital transactions, the need for cash among developed and developing economies is encouraging the development of ATM deployments.Furthermore, with the need to reduce operational costs and increase customer satisfaction, banks are rapidly deploying cash-dispensing ATMs and self-service cash recycling machines. Moreover, the demand for small-value transactions among retail consumers is a crucial factor in surging self-service ATM deployments.
The vending machine segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 17.2% during the forecast period The rising demand for vending machines in the corporate sector is driving the overall market growth. The increasing need to reduce additional costs, space, and queues is the other factor driving the market in commercial spaces.

The Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR of 15.4% over the forecast period. A growing number of QSRs coupled with the increasing consumer orders and the need to reduce counter waiting time with fewer employees is driving the need for self-service systems. Furthermore, the increasing competition among restaurants to provide efficient service while maintaining operational costs is another factor responsible for the market growth. Additionally, the need to provide increased guest satisfaction and order accuracy and improve smarter business is driving the adoption of automated self-service systems among QSRs.
