Retail/POS Overview  
Research shows that more than one-third of all currently installed units are retail kiosks. Older applications such as gift registries are still in use, but are more closely associated with online retail registries. Kiosks for product information and locators are still popular in locations such as grocery stores and automobile dealerships.
Retail kiosks come in many shapes and sizes, from traditional freestanding models to countertop and wall- and shelf-mounted devices. Newer models come equipped with printers and credit/debit card readers to allow customers to pay for their purchases right at the unit, thereby avoiding long checkout lines. Barcode-price checking units in large retail establishments are growing in popularity, and the latest versions allow customers to not only scan a product for the current selling price, but are also equipped with a small screen to suggest companion products and display special offers.

The numbers of retail kiosk installations continue to grow, especially in North America where retail giants such as Wal-Mart and Home Depot are converting more of their checkout aisles to customer-operated lanes. Although the average cost of this type of unit can reach $100,000, the ROI is under one year. Moreover, customers seem to prefer the units, indicating that they think the units are fun to use and like the control it provides them.
Global Retail/POS Predictions  
According to a recent study by Venture Development Corporation (VDC), an independent technology market research and strategy consulting firm, retail POS is a trend that is here to stay.

“Despite the recent economic turmoil, retailers from virtually every segment across the globe are experiencing tremendous pressure to invest in automation technologies, said Rory Gardner, research analyst for VDC. “POS terminals remain at the centre of these investments due to their ability to improve turnover rates, enhance customer interaction, eliminate costs, and develop the enterprise's competitive advantage.”

Natick, Mass.-based VDC predicts the global market for POS terminals will grow 4.6% (CAGR) over the next five years, reaching $4.1 billion and 2.5 million units by 2012.
