More than two years have passed since the advent of Covid-19 caused unprecedented disruption to life as we know it.
Like most other industries, the retail aotomation industry like smart vending machine and smart lockers have been hit hard during the pandemic. The impact of closing other key sectors such as travel, education, leisure and commercial offices brought our industry to an almost complete halt. However, as lockdown restrictions continue to ease and our new normal begins, we will see a significant increase in demand for outdoor and dining out experiences.
As a result, the landscape of smart locker vending solutions is changing. Whether at work, school, hospital or on the go, the need for safe, low-touch access to high-quality food and beverages is on the rise – people want easy access to refreshments on the go.
The global vending machine market is expected to grow by USD 9.33 billion between 2021 and 2025 owing to surging demand for contactless automatic refreshment stations and vending machines.
Starting in 2017, SNBC began to enter the retail automation industry. After more than 5 years of development, the company has developed three major product lines: intelligent combined vending machines, intelligent beverage vending machines, and intelligent lockers. The supported payment methods include face recognition, QR code reading, cash payment, credit card payment, NFC, etc.
With strong R&D capabilities, excellent quality and automated mass production capabilities, SNBC has become one of the world's top 500 designated suppliers and one of the largest suppliers in the retail automation industry.
