NEW YORK — Self-checkout technology continues to rise in importance at retailers in North America, according to a new study by IHL Group.
The "2012 North American Kiosk" study finds that self-checkout shipments are increasing 8% year to year, with self-checkout transactions exceeding $255 billion annually in North America. Transactions at self-service kiosks are growing more than 7% per year in North America, and are expected to exceed $1 trillion by 2014.
The study tracks the shipments, installed base and revenue turn-through kiosks in six different categories: self-checkout, ticketing, check-in, postal, food ordering and other kiosks (which is inclusive of DVD rentals). For more, visit ihlservices.com/ihl/.
