India is also a prominent interactive kiosk market and demand for ATMs is increasing in India. In both China and India, rise in millennial population, increase in penetration of digital technologies, and government initiatives for financial inclusion are boosting the number of banking consumers. Consequently, banks are introducing ATMs in order to serve this large pool of new consumers. Japan is a major exception to this trend, as the number of ATMs has declined in Japan, as the cost and maintenance of an ATM in the country is higher than the fee it generates. The number of ATMs is expected to rise in other countries in Asia Pacific also, such as Myanmar, Bangladesh, and Pakistan.
