Hangzhou's Tmall unmanned supermarket has the advantages of a good indoor environment and many types of products. The advantage of vending machines is that they can be seen everywhere, it's convenient and quick to buy small items, and the display of goods is clear at a glance. Second, vending machines with the function of preventing the elderly from getting lost appeared.

The development of the vending machine industry has accelerated from the coast to the inland, first-tier cities to second and third-tier cities and remote areas. Vending machines are no longer limited to semi-closed places such as subways, schools, and office buildings, and gradually move to many streets and corners. The development goal of vending machines is to bring the greatest convenience to society and life, which requires vending machines not only to have their inherent functions, but also to consider multi-faceted development.
Major brands have also started the vending machine market one after another, expanding the market share of vending machines in retail, jointly developing the market layout of vending machines with third-party distributors, and accelerating the pace of development of the vending machine market. In addition, many vending machine manufacturers in China have joined the International Vending Machine Association, such as EVA and NAMA to obtain advanced technical exchanges and help, which will promote the development of the domestic vending machine industry and make it develop in the international market in the future.
