Mobile Point-of-Sale Market Discussed by IHL Group in In-demand Report Available at MarketPublishers.com19 Jul 2013 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – The mobile point-of-sale (POS) market is evolving at a rapid pace, with an ever-increasing range of products and services on offer. Retailers find it attractive to use handheld devices for mobile POS. The use of tablet PCs, such as the iPad, is becoming extremely popular, with shipments of these devices for mobile POS increasing at a rate of nearly 40% in 2013.
The mobile POS market is forecast to go beyond USD 2 billion in hardware/software sales in North America in 2013, and about 30% of North American retailers plan to adopt mobile POS in some form by end-2013. An even greater number (33%), however, do not plan to adopt mobile POS at all within the next 3 years. The adoption rate is dependent to great extent on the type of retailer and volume of transactions.
Topical study “Mobile POS: Hype to Reality” developed by IHL Consulting Group draws up an elaborate picture of the mobile point-of-sale market, particularly focusing on North America.
The report offers an up-close look at the current standing of mobile POS, the adoption rates of the various retail verticals, and the shipment and installed base details by type of device. The report provides in-depth forecasts for shipments and installed base of these devices, as well as an estimate of the impact that these devices are expected to have on the use of traditional POS hardware. Furthermore, some operational insights on the key issues faced by retailers in incorporating these devices into their stores are given in the research, too.
Device types covered include: rugged handhelds, non-rugged handhelds, and tablet PCs.
