January 2016 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

The global mobile POS terminals market size is expected to reach USD 42.99 billion by 2022, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Mobile POS terminals have evolved from basic payment processing tools to advanced analytics solution providers with greater processing capability and wireless communication support. The inflection of these terminals came with the adoption of consumer grade devices such as tablets for business use. Ubiquitous wireless connectivity such as the Bluetooth, availability of mobile printers, scanners, card readers and peripheral devices; and multiple platform support have driven the mobile POS terminals market in various applications.

Sophisticated data analytics, growing credit card payments and ever-changing consumer expectations are expected to spur the mobile POS terminals industry. This growth has encouraged retailers to leverage new applications and strategies to deliver seamless customer experience. Mobile applications have the ability to create new channels for revenue growth; as a result, vendors are increasingly trying to understand various marketing channels available in order to leverage technology to compete. Flexibility of having a tablet-based mobile POS owing to low installation costs has attracted SMBs to invest in this technology. Reduced customer time in line, increased security, free floor space and paper-free receipting services are the features driving mPOS terminals demand over traditional or fixed terminals.

The growing penetration of tablet devices, rising base of SMBs and micro-merchants, need for effective line-busting schemes to encourage card adoption are expected to propel market growth over the coming years. However, lack of standardization and data security concerns may restrain mobile POS terminals market growth. Increased penetration of Near Field Communication (NFC) in mobile devices is expected to augment demand.
