Market overview of EMV POS terminals

Technavio’s research analyst predicts the global EMV POS terminals market to grow at a CAGR of around 14% during the forecast period. The increased adoption of EMV cards is driving the EMV POS terminals market. According to the EMV standards, financial institutions across the globe have a deadline by which period all payment cards should be EMV compliant. The majority of the developed and developing nations have migrated or upgraded their payment cards and POS terminals to be EMV compliant.

However, the high cost of installation of these terminals is expected to deter the market growth during the forecast period. The cost of replacement or fresh installation of POS hardware increases the overall cost in the existing business models and as a result retailers tend to postpone the replacement of the older POS terminals. For instance, during 2015, a significant number of retailers in Europe used POS systems that were outdated by around five years. The process of transition from older to new POS hardware is capital intensive, time-consuming, and a complex decision for the organization to make. Moreover, the end-user will have to bear the additional cost to be compliant with the EMV standards, thereby increasing the cost of ownership.
