The above 15” segment is anticipated to push past US$ 7.5 billion by end 2022.

They serve the purpose of an ATM much better than onsite ATM’s located at or near a bank premises. The offsite ATM segment is estimated to be worth just under US$ 22 billion by the end of the study period. Nonetheless, companies must not overlook onsite ATM’s entirely in favor of offsite machines.
