Point-of-Sale (POS) Market Report Scope & Overview:

The Point-of-Sale (POS) market size was valued at USD 29.01 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach USD97.09 billion by 2031 and grow at a CAGR of 16.3% over the forecast period 2024-2031.

A point of sale (POS) is a digital electronic device that uses software and hardware to allow retailers to accept card payments without having to use their cash registers to scan cards directly. Electronic devices used for processing card payments, inventory management, printing invoices, and establishing loyalty programs in restaurants, hotels, healthcare, retail, warehouse/distribution, and entertainment are known as POS terminals. The cost of implementing POS terminals varies depending on the size of the company and the terms supplied by the vendors.

Customers may not have to pay an additional cost to use the POS terminal service, and small stores or merchants may not have to pay rent to operate the POS terminals. To put it another way, point of sale is a wide term that refers to displays and equipment used to conduct online transactions using computers, barcode scanners, and cash registers. Users may use the software to keep track of consumer orders, credit and debit cards, and links to other systems. Continuous technical improvements have led to advancements in these systems, such as mobile POS with bar code scanners and cloud-based POS, which have increased business productivity by giving significant Returns on Investments (ROI).

Ripple, the pioneer in corporate blockchain and crypto solutions, announced a collaboration with Lunu in June 2022 to enable the Berlin-based company's luxury stores to accept bitcoin as a means of payment in store and online using Ripple's Liquidity Hub. Lunu's point of sale (POS) terminal and web widget allow high-end and luxury shops in the UK and Europe to take crypto payments in-store. Farfetch, Off-White, Browns, and Steven Stone are among Lunu's current clients. Lunu's clients will be able to speed up the acceptance of crypto payments by optimizing the exchange of crypto assets to fiat in one location at competitive costs, thanks to Liquidity Hub.



  • POS systems aid in increasing productivity, which has a beneficial influence on sales volume.

During the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) epidemic, touchless payments have become essential. Companies in the point-of-sale (POS) industry are capitalizing on incremental possibilities by extending the availability of POS devices, as the trend of digital payments continues to grow in India. There is a rising understanding of the importance of cleaning point-of-sales on a frequent basis to prevent the transmission of coronavirus. Retailers are implementing NFC (Near Field Communication)–enabled POS systems to take smaller-value payments with minimal physical interaction.

The overall number of point-of-sales installed by merchant acquiring banks has surpassed several million. Manufacturers of point-of-sale (POS) devices are taking advantage of this trend by including novel payment choices in their equipment.


Both mobile and stationary POS terminals can benefit from POS software. Due to rising choices among FSRs and QSRs, the fixed category accounted for the biggest revenue share in 2021. Fixed systems are more secure in terms of data privacy, making them a favored choice among many end-users. Over the projection period, the mobile POS category is expected to grow at the quickest rate. Wireless technology has changed the way people pay and how businesses operate. The POS software installed on tablets or smartphones allows for speedy payment via applications without the need to connect the system to a local network. In addition, utilizing a card reader linked to a tablet or smartphone as a payment option necessitates the use of supporting apps to operate the scanner and complete the invoicing process. The segment's expansion has been fueled by the simplicity of payment.

Because of the data protection and more control given by this deployment strategy, on-premise POS software deployment accounted for the biggest revenue share in 2021. The requirement for distinct front-end and back-end solutions to limit access to important financial and business information contributed to the strong demand for on-premise POS software implementation. From 2022 to 2028, the cloud deployment POS software is predicted to grow at the fastest rate. This rise can be attributed to increasing demand due to low-cost cloud deployment, which allows for quick adaptation to changing corporate landscapes.

In 2020, the big enterprise sector led the market, accounting for almost 58 percent of total sales. The strong demand for customized POS software across large-scale retail businesses, restaurants, and entertainment industries that need a system to manage their cash flows and company operations is responsible for the segment's rise. The solution is tailored depending on company kind and function, and it is expensive compared to easily accessible software because major firms must simplify various outlets' operations and daily sales data. Over the projection period, the SME category is predicted to increase at the fastest CAGR. The rapid adoption of cloud-deployed mobile POS software solutions by SMEs because of their affordability and scalability, as well as the necessity to boost business amid the COVID-19 epidemic, is cited for the increase.

In 2021, the retail segment emerged as the most profitable end-user category, accounting for over half of all sales. The enormous retail industry comprises apparel, accessories, groceries, packaged goods, electronics, and much more, all of which necessitate the use of point-of-sale software due to the nature of the business. The retail business has increasingly moved away from traditional brick-and-mortar establishments and toward multi-channel (social media) and e-commerce selling. Over the projection period, product demand in the restaurant category is expected to increase considerably. It's yet another profitable market that POS suppliers are pursuing. The online meal delivery system has grown in popularity among the younger generation, necessitating additional capabilities in restaurant POS software to track food delivery and accept new orders and payments.

The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation
