The vending industry shows signs of recovery from pandemic

The European Vending & Coffee Association (EVA) recently published a new report which demonstrates an in-depth look into the pace of the recovery of the European industry since the start of the pandemic.

The latest report from EVA shows a few interesting facts about the state of the industry and his recovery. Here are a few random insights from this publication:

  • The total number of machines across Europe has climbed to 4.4 million
  • Italian market again counts the largest field base with more than 818,000 machines.
  • Micromarkets number almost 5,000 across Europe and are showing impressive year-on-year growth.
  • The German market revenue is €2.5 billion, an increase of 5% from 2020 and the largest market by revenue.
  • Blistering compound growth in Ukraine from 2016-21 (of 15% for machine numbers and 20% in revenue) needs of course read in context of the current ongoing and devastating war.  
  • The underlying growth trends in Poland remain strong as one of the outstanding areas of industry potential. These trends continue with 7% growth in machine fieldbase and almost 20% in revenue compared to last year.
  • The average selling price for a hot beverage has risen by 4.7%


So far, the market recovers but is not yet at the pre-pandemic levels. While there is a small growth in the number of machines, there are bigger rises in both the total number of vends as well as a big increase in product revenue compared to 2020, helped by a jump in prices and consumption. Nevertheless, both the vends and revenue remain well below those seen in 2019, and clearly demonstrates that full recovery will take some time yet.
