France vending market: EUR 665 million industry in 2012

Press Release   •   Jul 17, 2013 14:39 BST

The France vending market is a consolidated industry. Indeed, the top three vending players represented almost 70% of the total market in 2012. Selecta France SA remained the leading player with a 36% value share in 2012 thanks to its strong presence in public areas, such as railway stations and motorway service areas. Moreover, the company consolidated its lead by continuing to innovate through its offering, particularly with Fairtrade coffee or through its machines with high-tech screens, for instance.

Compared to the review period, sales grew at a faster pace in 2012 due to growingly hectic lifestyles on one side and a well-tailored offer to consumers‟ needs by manufacturers and operators on the other side; both putting efforts into user-friendly vending machines as well as in products that increasingly correspond to what consumers find in other distribution channels.

Snacking and consumption on-the-go both will continue to drive sales through vending machines in France over the forecast period. And distributors and manufacturers are expected to continue to adapt their products to consumers, making their offer increasingly attractive and convenient.
