The global Point Of Sale Software market size is expected to be worth around US$ 18.2 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Point Of Sale Software market size was valued at US$ 8.3 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 10.2% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.
The market is expected to witness substantial growth owing to increasing need for compatible software for point of sale system’s functioning. Point-of-Sale (POS) software facilitates functions such as inventory management, authorize cards payment, collect signatures and e-mail receipts, and manage employees and business operations to minimize human intervention and ensure smooth running of all processes.
POS software is used across different end-user industries for processing payments, bookkeeping, invoicing, tracking orders, and other functions. However, the functionality may significantly vary depending upon the end-user industry requirement. For instance, the restaurant POS software requires specific features such as order, inventory, table management, and employee scheduling to meet the needs of different restaurant types, which is not needed in retail or healthcare. Hence, increasing demand for customized POS software in restaurant, retail, hospitality, healthcare, entertainment business, and other industries is expected to boost the point of sale software market over the forecast period.
POS software for a fixed POS terminal has been used for decades and is trusted across all large business sectors due to its ability to provide robust business functions and management of inventory, loyalty programs and gift cards, credit/debit card payment, employee attendance, and cash drawer for large enterprises. While small and medium enterprises have largely opted for mobile POS software owing to its convenience in business to allow credit or debit card payments virtually as well as at any location on-the-go.
By the application, the point of sale software market has been classified into fixed POS and mobile POS segment. The fixed POS segment dominated the market in 2019, accounting for over 58% of the overall market share. The growth can be attributed to the current preference of most brick-and-mortar restaurants and retail stores for a fixed POS solution over mobile POS since they provide more functionality and features. The consumer is inclined toward using a fixed POS system due to benefits such as robust management solutions with business functionality, employee time clocks, a cash drawer, inventory management, loyalty programs, and gift card management.
The on-premise segment held the highest market share in 2019, owing to higher adoption by the large enterprises, which runs on the local server over the remote facility. Large enterprises have a huge volume of sensitive customer information prone to data breach. Hence, on-premise deployment of software provides more control to the owner, thus ensuring better security of crucial data.
The market for the Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) segment is expected to expand at the highest CAGR of 11.8% over the forecast period. The SMEs are readily adopting cloud-based mobile POS software solutions owing to its affordability and scalability. Moreover, small and medium-size businesses often expand at the city or state level and prefer budget-friendly systems based on word-of-mouth by similar business owners. Therefore, the SME user contribution to the POS software market has been vital in helping vendors expand their presence in the local market. The vendors targeting local business owners are focusing on small and medium-size local businesses across retail, hospitality, healthcare, and other major industries.
On the basis of end user, the market is segmented into hospitality, restaurants, healthcare, retail, warehouse, entertainment, and others. The retail segment dominated the market in 2019 and was valued at USD 2.8 billion. The retail sector is the prime user of POS software. The industry is changing rapidly with the growth of multi-channel and e-commerce retailing and can perform better during the forecast period.
The restaurant POS software segment is poised to register a CAGR of 10.3% over the forecast period since it is another lucrative segment for the vendors. Rising integration of restaurants with online delivery providers is a key feature influencing POS purchases. Online ordering and delivery are expected to drive POS investments in 2020 which will in turn help restaurants avoid costly third-party fees. Data analytics, order management, marketing, and payments in the restaurant industry have led to a staggering trajectory and are expected to augment over the coming years.
North America market was valued at USD 2.4 billion and also held the largest share of the overall market in 2019. The region has a presence of prominent POS software vendors and has a high demand and adoption for advanced integrated systems. The healthcare industry in the U.S. is expected to witness the fastest growth rate owing to the need for improving facilities in hospitals related to payment, insurance, and management of patients. According to the American Hospital Association’s survey in 2018, there were 6,148 hospitals that required cost-effective and robust POS software integrated with all insurance payment processing, patient financial services, reporting, and accounting to provide complete payment processing.
