Pune, India, May 2020, MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has published a Half-Cooked Research Report on the Global Cloud Point of Sale (POS) Market.
The cloud POS market 2020 had clinched a valuation of USD 1,046.0 million in 2017 and is all set to touch a valuation of USD 4,226.3 Million by 2024, confirms Market Research Future (MRFR). The market expansion rate can be 21.4% between 2017 and 2024 (assessment period), estimates MRFR. We will provide covid-19 impact analysis with the report, offering an in-depth appraisal of the market following the coronavirus disease outbreak.
The COVID-19 impact on the global economy has been brutal, however the pandemic has somehow been a profitable event for cloud providers, given the rising number of customers adopting remote work environment as well as automated back-end IT systems. The cloud platform services industry has even managed to profit massively in the first half of 2020. While there is no doubt that SARS-CoV-2 has left a debilitating impact on the economies across the world, studies reveal that it has had a slightly positive effect on the cloud point of sale market. Cloud giants such as Microsoft, Amazon, IBM and Google have noted strong financials with massive sales of Infrastructure-as-a-Service in early 2020, post the pandemic outbreak. Therefore, it is safe to assume that the POS market share can witness better growth in the coming period.
Considering the long term and short term impact of the novel corona virus, the entertainment industry has been noted as the biggest gainer since the inception of the lockdown period. The shutting down of movie theatres has steered people towards alternatives like Amazon Prime Video and Netflix, with a significant jump in app downloads across regions. Since cloud-based point of sale offers high flexibility while maintaining data as well as applications on central remote servers, the current lockdown scenario further boosts its demand in the SARS-CoV-2 era.
