Technavio, a company that develops over 2000 pieces of research every year and covers more than 500 technologies across 80 countries, has announced the top five vendors for the global electronic cash register market in their latest research report. This report also lists nine other prominent vendors who are expected to contribute to this market’s growth between 2017-2021.
Competitive vendor landscape
The global market for electronic cash registers is characterized by intense competition. Vendors are trying to upgrade their technologies to remain competitive in the market. For instance, Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions, Toshiba America Business Solutions, and Toshiba TEC demonstrated various retail solutions during the National Retail Federation’s Big Show in January 2015. The competition from substitutes is becoming more intense as some of the leading retail and hospitality centers are adopting card payment services.
According to Sunil Kumar Singh, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on computing devices, “The market is currently experiencing a rise in the number of M&As. SMEs in the market are being acquired by larger players. For instance, in July 2016, Fujitsu acquired TrueNet Communications, which is a US-based network service provider. The acquisition was aimed at expanding Fujitsu Network Communications.”
