Automated Teller Machines (ATMs): A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) July 09, 2014
Follow us on LinkedIn – Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) represent one of the most flexible banking products in use today. ATMs, developed primarily to cut operational costs, have become one of the most significant technological investments made by commercial banks. The ATM ecosystem comprises a large number of business entities that function in unison to develop and expand the concept of 24/7 banking. This includes ATM manufacturers; software companies that develop ATM software; companies manufacturing stationery products to print receipts; and lock manufacturers developing latest locking systems for security. Despite the threat to the ATM/debit card market from smart cards, POS, and other new payment methods, ATMs will continue to be a trusted standard in banking operations. The ever-growing need for speed and convenience and the unchallenged dominance of cash as a mode of payment supported by its attributes of universality, trust and anonymity represent primary factors for the market’s strong evolution over the years.
Future growth in the market will be driven by robust installations in emerging markets and replacement demand in developed countries where older ATMs will be replaced with advanced machines. In addition, the steady political thrust in the form of EMV (Europay-MasterCard-Visa) and 3-DES (triple data encryption standard) specifications, technical innovations, rapid advances in the form of intelligent deposit, and solutions that integrate mobile-banking with the self-service ATM channel will also drive significant market gains in the next few years.
Technological advancements poised to benefit the market in the near term include full service ATMs that can dispense various products such as stamps, movie tickets, store coupons, and travelers’ checks, make international wire transfers and check deposits without envelopes; feature-rich ATMs with touch screens, video conferencing, and security mechanisms such as thumbprint and retinal scanners; self-contained mobile ATMs; and smart ATMs that enable customers to use contactless cards for withdrawals; among others. While technological advances are expected to significantly drive ATM adoption worldwide, the machines also face the challenge of rising global attacks, card/PIN theft as well as data theft, among others. In response, the industry has witnessed a range of security technologies such as anti-skimming technologies that identify and jam skimming devices; foreign object detectors; and video surveillance to detect PIN capture, among others.
As stated by the new market research report on Automated Teller Machines (ATMs), Asia-Pacific represents the largest as well as the fastest growing market worldwide with a projected CAGR of 9.0% over the analysis period. Low ATM density and explosive demand for ATM cash withdrawals supported by rising population, steady economic development, expanding middle class population, increasing income levels, and a huge unbanked and underbanked population represent key growth drivers in the region.
