In 2018 EAST began collecting data for POS Terminal numbers in Europe for the first time.  POS (point of sale) terminals are the most widely deployed terminal type.  The chart below shows the current POS Terminal numbers for Europe. EAST also provides summary data for ATM numbers in Europe.

 

EAST estimates that there are 16,740,886 POS Terminals deployed in Europe, a 3% increase from the 2022 total.  EAST estimates that there are 3,074,790 POS Terminals in Turkey; 1,868,822 POS Terminals in Indonesia; 1,336,155 POS Terminals in Mexico; 450,000 POS Terminals in South Africa; 393,479 POS Terminals in Ukraine; and 129,980 POS Terminals in Serbia, which are not shown in these totals.

The European breakdown by country is below.

 

EAST is also looking at getting data for the number of UPTs (unattended payment terminals) in Europe, but this is proving to be a challenge and no data is yet available.

EAST has been publishing data on ATM numbers in Europe since 2004.
