US demand for vending machines will grow 5.9 percent yearly through 2006. Gains will be driven by the rising number of vending locations, the proliferation of innovations such as cashless machines, and the retrofitting of bill acceptors in existing machines. Placements in offices, retail establishments and health facilities will grow the fastest.
This study analyzes the $1.2 billion US vending machine industry. It presents historical data for 1992, 1996 and 2001, and forecasts to 2006 and 2011 by product (e.g., beverage vending, food vending, change machines, bulk vending, cigarette machines); by market (e.g., buyers, vending locations); and by US region.
The study also examines the market environment, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 32 companies including Maytag, Sanden, Coin Acceptors, Wittern, and Automatic Products.
