The integration of wireless communicating devices (smart phones) with ATM machines reduces ATM frauds that arise due to card skimming, a factor that prominently drives the adoption of Smart ATMs which is consequentially spurring the global ATM market. The North American region accounted for ~68,000 million of ATM transactions in 2013, which clearly shows the widespread adoption of ATM services in the developed regions. Unlike developed countries, the ATM market in Asia Pacific is in its developing phase. China, for instance, has tripled its ATM installations from 130,000 in 2007 to 339,000 in 2011.
The diverse services and offerings in financial transactions are the major drivers for the global ATM market. Thefts, online frauds, and network connectivity issues while using mobile ATMs & smart ATMs, are some of the major threats to the growth of the ATM market. The growing use of solar powered ATM machines is reducing the cost of ATMs, leading to minimal operational cost. According to the "Federal Reserve System", ATM market in developed countries such as U.S, UK, Canada and France has attained state of maturity, while the "Reserve Bank of India" forecasts a rapid growth of ATM market in emerging countries.

IADs in the North American region account for more than 50% of ATMs. Whereas, in Western Europe, Asia Pacific, and LAMEA, it accounts for about 12%. The widespread installation of ATMs around the globe has led to a need for managed services. Therefore, different market players such as NCR Corporation, Wincor Nixdorf, Fujitsu and Diebold Incorporation are capitalizing on the prevailing market opportunities by offering managed services for ATMs.
