Some of the major firms, including Coca-Cola, are apparently working on smart vending machines which are integrated with recycling technologies. Further, nations like the U.S., the UK, China and India have also adopted policies and initiatives to lower plastic usage, that would augment the growth of vending machine market.

A rise in the application of smart dispensing solutions at public transport hubs like bus stands, railways stations, and airports is estimated to accelerate the growth of vending machine market. Transportation hubs are now focusing on transforming their operational techniques from manual to automatic. For example, the Indian Railways is heavily investing in automation and has installed an automatic food vending machine, operated using a tablet, in the Coimbatore-Bengaluru UDAY Express, in June 2018. Furthermore, the state-owned railway firm is planning to install similar systems in other trains in the future, which will drive the growth of vending machine market.

Prominent companies partaking in the vending machines industry have apparently retained focus on integrating advanced technologies in their product offerings. Growing adoption of these sustainable technologies, such as NFC-based payments, internet & mobile connectivity, and others, have remained pivotal strategies adopted by companies for enhancing their stance across this industry. A gist of the contribution by some of the major companies in the vending machine market is mentioned below:

Azkoyen Group

In October 2018, Spain-based Azkoyen Group was bestowed with the ‘Innovation award’ for one of its beverage machines, at the Vending Industry Awards. Just a month later, the company increased its presence in the Asian continent by providing espresso coffee machines to the offices of the DBS bank and KPMG consultancy in Hong Kong (China). Earlier, Azkoyen Group had also installed its machines in the amusement parks of Vinpearl in Phu Quoc and Vinpearl in Nha Trang in Vietnam.

Azkoyen is also known to have installed its machines in other significant outlets like supermarkets, national television VTV and the French embassy in Saigon, along with private universities BUV and RMIT, located in Hanoi, among others. The robust expansion strategy adopted by such leading companies will further propel the vending machine market trend in the upcoming years.

Continental Vending Services

Among some of the most tried-and-tested strategies, M&A continues to retain increased attention in the global vending machine market. Validating the same, in November 2018, the Troy-based Continental Services took another slice of the local food services market by acquiring United Vending & Market Services, a Ferndale-based food supplier.

This acquisition, which was a part of the aggressive five-year growth plan of the company, was its  fourth takeover in the past year. As the growth tactic of acquisitions continues to gain further traction, the global vending machine market will garner increased momentum in the forthcoming years.

Evoca Group

Leading manufacturer of professional coffee machines, the EVOCA Group, along with Mastercard in June 2018, launched a new payment app, Breasy, which would allow customers to buy coffee with their smartphones. Using Breasy, customers could pay through smartphones via a safe technology and have a completely digital and innovative shopping experience.

The growing adoption of such sustainable technologies by numerous vending machine manufacturers will further accelerate the growth of vending machine market.

The aforementioned instances aptly validate that the laudable efforts undertaken by prominent industry players would push the vending machine market trends in the coming years. The competitive spectrum of this industry is quite diverse, and consists of renowned companies like Sanden Holdings Corporation, Fuji Electric Co., Ltd., Crane Merchandising Systems, Inc, Bulk Vending Systems, Bianchi Industry SpA, Automated Merchandising Systems, and American Vending Machines, among others.
