The global unmanned convenience store market was valued US$ 67.48 million in 2019 and is expected to reach US$ 1,640.32 million by 2027 with a CAGR growth rate of 51.9% during the forecast period. The global unmanned convenience store market is a highly fragmented market with the presence of considerable regional and local players providing numerous solutions for companies ready to invest in the unmanned convenience store. Moreover, the lack of sustainable competitiveness among leading players along with technical expertise has further reduced the entry barriers enabling the serious threat from regional and local players operating in the unmanned convenience store market.

There are various operators who invested in these stores, which include e-commerce firms Alibaba Group Holdings, JD.com and Tencent, a home appliance retailer Suning, and a courier company in China named Shunfeng Express.
