Are vending machines going to be a trend in the future?
Judging from the development of vending machines, they appeared as a result of the transformation of labor-intensive industrial structure to technology-intensive society. Large-scale production and consumption and changes in consumption patterns and sales environment require new circulation channels, while labor costs for traditional supermarkets, department stores and other new circulation channels are rising, coupled with the limitations from the sites, shopping convenience and other factors, non-attended vending machines came into being as something necessary.
In terms of supplying vending machines can fully make up the shortage of human resources and adapt to the changes in consumption environment and consumption patterns. With less capital needed and being less space occupying, 24-hour self-service vending machines can be more labor-saving, more attractive to stimulate curiosity of shopping and a good solution to the rising labor costs.

Its development is committed to saving energy resources, energy-saving beverage vending machines have become the mainstream of the industry, these vending machines can keep the beverages cool even when the refrigeration is turned off, saving 10-15% electricity from traditional vending machines. Vending machines will be more energy-saving and multifunctional oriented as we have enter the 21st century.
Automation is an unstoppable trend, we’ll see more intelligent equipment replacing traditional labor, whether in manufacturing, servicing or retailing, the prospect of vending machine industry is bright under these conditions.
