These counterfeit products are made of low quality components, in an attempt to sell a cheap imitation of similar goods produced by brands consumers know and trust. Thus, home textile market faces a threat of having counterfeit products of big manufacturing companies in the market.

These kiosks are fast and inexpensive, providing a convenient access point for users to print documents, often for free, or for a very small fee. The self-service aspects help keep customers moving instead of waiting in line for personal assistance. For instance, in March 2012, Fujifilm Group introduced SmartPix photo kiosks with NFC (Near-field communication) capabilities that enable customers to print digital photos instantly.
