The Global Interactive Kiosk Market 2017-2021 report by ReportsnReports is a second comprehensive study of the global kiosks market, though it focuses specifically on "interactive kiosks." According to this report, the global interactive kiosk market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 13.43%. As explained in this report, an interactive kiosk works as self-service tool where consumers, shoppers and other individuals can learn more about the respective mall, store or environment. However, they are also used in other applications like hospitals, movie theaters and airports.
Interactive kiosks offer several key benefits, one of which is reduced cost to the business. Instead of hiring an employee (or several) to perform these functions, companies can simply use an interactive kiosk. This "automation" is believed to help the interactive kiosk market grow in the years to come. With that said, cost-effectiveness is only one benefit of using an interactive kiosk.
