Mobile Self-Scanning and Checkout-Free 2021

Consumers expect convenient, personalised and speedy shopping experiences – to match innovators, retailers need to reduce friction from in-store checkout. Mobile Self-Scanning and Checkout-Free 2021 is RBR’s brand new study of technologies that eliminate the end-of-shop scanning process.

The study covers mobile self-scanning offerings using both retailer-owned and consumer-owned devices. It also includes checkout-free technologies that utilise any combination of cameras and other sensors (e.g. weight), at store, shelf, cart or basket level.

Mobile Self-Scanning and Checkout-Free 2021 combines a mix of primary and secondary research with RBR’s in‑house data, market understanding and research expertise: it delivers reliable market sizes and vendor shares, plus in-depth analysis  and commentary for 23 countries worldwide.

Retailers, technology vendors, payments firms and other industry stakeholders need intelligence on this dynamic market: the study supports a range of strategic planning activities including prioritisation of market opportunities, competitive analysis and identification of M&A opportunities.
