Asia Pacific Smart Vending Machine Market Drivers and Restraints:
The increasing penetration of the Internet of Things (IoT) and connected device technologies is expected to drive the growth of smart vending machines. The growing consumer inclination towards cashless payments is further helping accelerate the growth of the industry. Cashless communication, near field communication (NFC), and mobile payment protocols are believed to have a favorable impact on the industry. Technological proliferation is leading to the adoption of innovative techniques, such as facial and voice recognition, in distribution systems. Built-in machines with voice and facial recognition sensors make it easy for users to recommend products based on their age and gender. Vendors focus on implementing interactive distribution systems to generate more revenue through advertising and displaying other information and news. In addition, the systems help reduce operating costs as they can be managed across remote sites, eliminating the need for a machine administrator to intervene. However, increased regulations on the sale of junk food on avenues such as schools and a ban on potentially dangerous confectionery products, such as cigarettes and tobacco, are believed to discourage market growth. Furthermore, the manufacture and deployment of these machines is an expensive affair, which subsequently affects the interests of the seller.
