The "Mobile POS: Mainstream and Moving Up" report has been added to's offering.

For several years the Mobile POS (mPOS) market has taken off, but in a somewhat bifurcated manner. While among smaller retailers, mPOS has truly been transforming, replacing traditional POS for new retailers at a rapid pace, the use of mPOS as a standard everyday product in enterprise retailers was delayed due to EMV and the drive to Unified Commerce. But in mid-2018 the Mobile POS market among the largest of retailers has hit its growth strides and this has continued in 2018 as retailers update their customer experience due to declining foot traffic.

Without question, the opportunity is staggering as some retailers have seen upwards of 25% increase in sales per transaction when mobile is used.

The enterprise retailers who are deploying now have a much more mature view of the market than the early adopters. They have the systems in place to actually benefit from MPOS and are not as concerned with the WOW factor or cool factor of the technology but rather the functionality that increases sales.

This research looks at the current state of Mobile POS in North America, the adoption rates of the various retail verticals, and the shipment and installed base details by type of device (Rugged Handheld, Non-Rugged Handheld, and Tablets). It includes market sizing, trends, and forecasts through 2022.
