COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Lockdowns imposed globally to stop the diffusion of the pandemic put constraints on the development of people and goods, which led to shop network disruptions and a decline in demand for outdoor payment terminals. However, the number of users conducting contactless transactions has surged during the outbreak.

Due to the growing concerns about payment security, retail merchants also make sure to offer a secure platform to their clients with the deployment of OPTs.
Market Growth Factors
Increasing Penetration Of Smartphones All Over The World
Smartphones are a basic necessity for people across the world in the modern era. A majority of people own a smartphone as it is allowing them to manage a lot of their work as well as personal routines.

Accelerates The Checkout Process
In the modern era, in which people are living very hectic and busy schedules, vendors and business owners are compelled to respond as quickly as they can. This entails promptly securing a sale. Vendors must not make their customers wait inordinately long to make a purchase. They might then determine they do not actually require the product. This is particularly problematic if a brick-and-mortar store frequently experiences lengthy or slowly moving lineups. By using a wireless credit card processing terminal, this issue can be simply addressed.
Market Restraining Factors

One of the main drivers of the segment’s growth is also the contact payment terminals’ established infrastructure and capacity to accept payments made by debit and credit cards.
By Application, the Outdoor Payment Terminal Market is segregated into Refuel, Carwash, Malls, and Others. In 2021, the carwash segment registered a significant revenue share of the outdoor payment terminal market.
