Retail Self-Service Kiosks Defined
Self-services addresses the need to provide targeted campaigns and information to in-store customers
VDC defines a self-service kiosk for the retail (including hospitality) market as a freestanding,
interactive, multimedia system used to provide information, or enable a transaction.
Self-service is defined as the capacity for consumers to fully serve themselves
without assistance, or interaction from the retail staff.
VDC’s self-service kiosks are customer-facing and exclude ATMs, photo,
self-ticketing, HR, self-checkout, basic price checkers, and gas pump
kiosks, each of which offer their own market dynamics.

Executive Summary – Market Size & Growth
What 2009 took, 2010 gave back – postponed 2009 projects revived in 2010
•
Retail and hospitality self-service kiosk suppliers realized nearly $474.6 million during calendar
year 2009, with the average supplier signaling a dramatic market (nearly 20%) decline from 2008.
•
The market is expected to grow at 9.3% CAGR over the next five years to $740.4 million in 2014.
•
In 2010, most vendors are seeing significant return to normal or better as dead 2009 projects
sprang back to life, with increased retailer conviction for kiosks.
•
The few major vendors that did see revenue growth in 2009 characterized this growth as
projects just too far along to cancel.
•
But the big story for self-service kiosks is future expectations.
 Accelerated global adoption of retail self-service kiosk solutions is expected for the coming years.
 A stream of new applications mature involving mobility, iPad / tablets, product vending, motion sensors,

•
biometrics and analytics.
As kiosk technologies continue to converge, integration with other in-store technologies will be critical.
The value propositions associated with self-service kiosk solutions, coupled with the rapidly
changing cultural demand for self-service by global consumers, will appropriately position these
solutions as a center of convergence for a retailer’s customer service, transaction automation,
and branding over the next five years.

Executive Summary – Trends – New Technologies
Kiosk vendors face a barrage of new technologies – but are they friend or foe?
Trends – New Technologies
•
Disruptive Opportunities:
 Potentially disruptive technologies including: interactive digital signage, mobile applications and iPads
are generally not mentioned as threats by kiosk suppliers. Instead, these retail automation technologies
are seen as complementary and integrate-able tools that can be deployed to meet application specific
requirements. However, clearly there are risks associated with each new development.
•
Strong Interest in Mobile Applications, but not yet any large scale demand:
 The highly anticipated demand for mobile applications has come much slower than expected. For
many, this market is still in the “buzz phase”, with no large-scale roll-outs. Technology challenges
remain, but we expect to hear about many mobile solutions sometime within the next year or two,
as mobile standards evolve.
•
The iPad is Making its Mark:
 Strong retailer interest in, but conflicting supplier opinions on iPad kiosk solutions – a large number
of national pilot programs currently underway suggest a potentially large market impact, despite
the tool’s fragility and novelty state.
•
Interactive Digital Signage blurring with kiosks:
 Digital signage, and most notably interactive digital signage, is growing fast globally and often blurs
with interactive kiosks. The big question going forward is how kiosks will integrate or otherwise
co-exist with digital signs.

Executive Summary – Trends – New Applications
Product vending kiosks, green solutions gaining steam; While loyalty making a comeback
Trends – New Applications
•
Product Vending converging with traditional self-service kiosk solutions. Redbox’s DVD
kiosk success replicable and being tested for multiple other wide-ranging applications.
 Sleeker, pedestal-form vending kiosks will soon (within 2 years) noticeably alter the image of product vending.
 DVD rental kiosk business likely to transform into digital download kiosks – and into sleeker kiosk form factors.
 Product vending kiosks seek to bridge the gap between traditional stores and online shopping
 Other parts of the world are less hesitant. In Europe and Asia, consumers buy anything from underwear to

•
prescription drugs from kiosks. Japan has one vending machine for about every 23 people, according to one
source. The country’s fascination with technology have made it a vending paradise.
Also contributing to the proliferation of this “automated retailing” is the new capacity to remotely monitor and
service the machines. Remote device management technology actually provides both technical support
and marketing data.
Loyalty Programs make a comeback
 Suppliers characterize this comeback in part due to higher-end retailers, who needed to cut prices during the
recession, pushing loyalty programs to satisfy long-time loyal customers, as they reel-back their price-cuts
and raise them back to normal levels.
•
Green Movement growing
 Some leading kiosk suppliers actively tapping into the growing global interest for cleaner solutions – which
to them spells an opportunity for new applications, and a competitive differentiator.
•
Biometrics & Motion Sensors
 Hearing a lot of buzz about, and some small rollouts with, these, but little demand on any significant scale.

Deployers versus Developers
Why kiosk deployers (e.g.Coinstar’s Redbox, Kodak and Blockbuster) are not included in this study
•
We count revenues earned from the manufacturing and sales of self-service kiosks.
 These revenues pertain only to shipments from kiosk manufactures and do not include companies such as Redbox,
Kodak or Blockbuster. In addition, these values reflect solely the movement of product from the point of manufacture
to the first point of distribution and do not include any channel markup.
•
A deployer installs kiosks as their own; earning revenues from transactions, not from the sales,
or lease of the kiosk (e.g. Redbox, Blockbuster)
 As Redbox does not sell kiosks, nor does it produce any revenues from the actual design, or construction of kiosks,
they are not included in the study – Their revenues more simply come from DVD rentals.
•
A developer is a firm that, on an OEM basis, designs and / or produces partial or complete kiosks.
 Some firms such as Flextronics builds kiosk for other kiosk developers (IBM) or deployers (Redbox).
Flextronics is thus a critical part of the kiosk production supply chain – their revenues come from building kiosks, and so their
kiosk revenues are included in this study, while RedBox’s are not.

Deployer – installs kiosks to earn transaction revenue

Branded Developer – Sells part / complete kiosks with its name on the kiosk

Unbranded Developer – Sells part / complete kiosks as OEM / PLP
Flextronics, Oleo
Hybrid Developer – Sells both direct and to branded developers

Self-Service Kiosk Market Commercial Value Chain
Self-Service Kiosk Supplier
VAD
•
The commercial value chain for Kiosks is
comprised of a number of direct and indirect
selling relationships.
•
Direct-to-end-user and OEM / private label
partnerships are the most common distribution
routes.
•
Tier 1 retail organizations most often seek a
direct relationship with the self-service kiosk
supplier, who assumes project management
responsibilities.
•
For these accounts, VARs and system integrators
often play a key supporting role, ensuring that
local post sale commitments are met.
•
VDC expects partnerships with ISVs (independent
software vendors) to increase as hardware
suppliers look to provide their customers with
best-of-breed customizable kiosk software
solutions aiding in seamless integration with
digital signage, mobile applications, POS and
other in-store technologies.

Self-Service Kiosk Market Regional Shipment Models
Slow and steady growth will be fueled by pent-up demand for self-service solutions and new applications
Regional Demand for
Self-Service Kiosk Solutions
•
In 2009, the global retail market for self-service
reached $474.6 million with unit shipments
surpassing $203 million, down roughly 20%
from 2008. VDC anticipates that revenue shipments
for Self-Service kiosk will grow at a CAGR of 9.3%,
approaching $740 billion by 2014.
•
Sales in the Americas region continue to be driven
by Tier 1 retailers, although large-scale kiosk
rollouts appear few and far between. Retailers in
2009 were extremely cautious with spending, but
have clearly spiked up demand for self-service kiosk
applications.
•
The Asia-Pacific market is expected to be the fastest
growing region over the next 5 years as retail
in China and India continues to scale. This demand
will be fueled by: Multinational corporations
expanding their foot print in the region; and Tier 1-2
retailers continuing to make initial investments
in kiosks.

Self-Service Kiosk Average Factory Selling Price
AFSPs vary widely depending upon the application, form factor, component makeup and quality
Global AFSP for
Self-Service Kiosk
•
The AFSP (price from the factory to the first point
of distribution) varies with the system components
integrated.
•
The AFSP in each region will continue to fall as
display prices decline, cheaper I / O components
enter the market, and smaller form factors win favor.
•
Another major downward pricing influence will
be the movement of the larger, global suppliers to
provide more standardized solutions for large-scale
deployments of the most popular kiosk applications.
•
The upfront capital investment required has been
a barrier to adoption for many retailers, particularly
in the current environment. Some suppliers have
responded with managed services and SaaS models
that enable retailers to invest for less.

Competitive Landscape
Niche marketplace has changed little, but that may change
•
The kiosk market ecosystem consists of hundreds of relatively small and several large companies providing
various parts of the complete kiosk solution.

IBM, NCR, Frank Mayer, Fujitsu and Kiosk Information Systems (KIS) continue to be the market leaders regarding self-service kiosk solutions
within North America. KIS’s position within the North American market is a direct result of extensive product portfolio and their advanced level
of customization and engineering regarding application / vertical market solutions.

IBM and NCR continue to leverage their easily customizable product portfolio and strategic partnerships to secure their market-leading
positions across several vertical markets.
•
The global market for self-service kiosk solutions remains highly fragmented. Characterized by distribution
channels that lend themselves to an increased level rebranding due to the multiple OEM and supplier
organizations that interact via strategic and short-term partnering agreements, the kiosk market continues
to be extremely convoluted.
•
Kiosks still lack that killer application that warrants multiple Tier 1 retailers to order large-scale kiosk rollouts.
While several applications currently enjoy widespread adoption, most orders are of the size that niche vendors
can fulfill. Regional top vendors such as KIS and Meridian thrive in this market.
•
In the projected market environment, VDC expects certain market consolidation as larger, global suppliers seek
to standardize products and compete more successfully on price and global support.
•
VDC projects strong near-future demand for more standardized, off-the shelf solutions for these most popular
applications, enabling the global solutions providers (IBM, NCR, Fujitsu, Motorola) to more capably build in their
economies of scale. The world doesn’t need 500 variations of a product guide kiosk. Standardization, for popular
kiosk applications, will likely rearrange the industry structure soon.
 Under this scenario, global vendors will dominate large-scale Tier 1 rollouts, high-end niche vendors will remain the industry
thought leaders and dominate the lucrative, customized kiosk demand, while low-middle-end kiosk developers
will serve lower-tier retailers, while needing to tighten their market niches to grow.
