Rapid rise in Mobile & Internet Penetration Facilitating Growth in Retail Sector: Key Market Driver

The spread of mobile phones has been significant across the world in recent years. The evolution of smartphones has fueled the use of mobile devices by consumers and at organization levels as well. The use of mobile devices has enabled organizations to provide greater mobility at workplaces and speed up processes. For example, the use of mobile devices as point-of-sale terminals at retail stores has permitted the faster movement of customers at cash counters, thus providing better customer satisfaction. The growth of e-Commerce and home delivery facilities are driving the expansion of the mPOS terminals market. mPOS solutions enable merchants to process payments at customers’ locations and eliminate the risks associated with cash transactions. Thus, increasing mobile and Internet penetration is expected to have a significant impact on the retail sector throughout the forecast period.

mPOS Value-Added Services (VAS) to Provide Future Opportunity

During the past few years, new vendors successfully activated millions of merchants by offering schemes that involved no monthly fees, flat rate percentage pricing, minimal cost hardware, and minimal ongoing maintenance charges. For instance, U.S.-based company LevelUp started offering 0% payment processing fees in exchange for obligatory marketing services. Competition on the basis of pricing among mPOS vendors is expected to be high during the coming years, due to an increasing number of players in the QSR mPOS market. Thus, key factors to sustain the competitive environment would be product differentiation and offering value-added services. mPOS terminal vendors need to offer customized mPOS solutions catering to the needs of specific industry verticals. Thus, this factor is expected to positively impact the growth of the mobile point-of-sale terminals market over the forecast period.
