Hi Anonym,

there are many different ways to calculate that. Depending on whether the question is used as a whole case or is only part of a case, you can solve it in different levels of detail.

A pragmatic solution could be the following:
Market size of ATMs = Number of ATMs / Lifetime of an ATM * Price of an ATM

Number of ATMs: Number of ATMs in your district * (inhabitants of your country / inhabitants of your district)

Lifetime of an ATM: Make an educated guess and explain it well. For example, you could explain that ATMs should always meet the latest security standards and thus only last 7 years due to rapid technology development.

Price of an ATM: Make an educated guess and explain it well. For example, you could explain that ATMs should always meet the highest technical standards and thus cost as much as a small car.

If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

Best regards

Hi Anonym,

I would like to add to Marco's answer the following, I think that is required to have a complete answer.

As Marco mentioned, one component to calculate the Market size of ATMs is the Number of ATMs in your country. Instead of estimation for Number of ATMs in your district, you can calculate the Number of ATMs in your country with a bottom-up approach;

Since we try to estimate the market size, we can consider the demand for ATMs.

So, firstly we can start from the demand for one ATM daily. We can calculate that by considering the number of customers per ATM per day.

As you know ATMs are open for 24 hours.

From my own experience, I assume that there are 2 hours of peak time for ATM service.

There are many types of processes that can be done from ATMs such as payments, withdrawal or deposit, transfer money, etc.

And I take an average time a customer spends on ATM 5 min.

So now I can calculate the number of customers for ATM for peak times.

Which is (120 min peak time period)/ (5 min per customer) = 24 customers.

The next step will be for off-peak times. Again from my own experience and observation, I assume that there will be 2 customers per hour for off-peak time. So we have 22 hours off-peak time which gives us the number of customers;

off-peak times per day (22)* number of customer per hour during off-peak times (2)= 44

So we have the number of customers per day for an ATM. (24+44=68)

Now we need to consider what is the average frequency for using the ATM since we need the total number of unique customers per ATM.

I assume that again based on my personal experience, it is twice a month.

That means for 15 days we will have the following number of unique customers for an ATM;

68*15= 1020 unique customers for an ATM.

Lastly, we need to estimate the number of ATM users. I assume that every bank customer can use the ATM service. So we can consider 90% of people who are over 20 years old take into account as a bank customer. So let's assume 60% of the population is over 20.

so now we can conclude the calculation for the country by following;

(Number of ATMs in your country)= (population of your country * 90% * 60%)/ (number of unique customer for an ATM)

Let' do that calculation for Germany,

80 million population* 90%* 60% = 43.2 million bank customers

43.2million/1020= 42350 ATMs in Germany

Bain Case: Old Winery

Solved 71.4k times
Bain Case: Old Winery You have inherited the “Old Winery” from your grandfather, a winery that has been family-owned for five generations and can be dated back to the 16th century. Half of the eleven hectares are used to grow white grapes, the other half to grow red grapes. They are grown in a conventional way, i.e. they are not organically farmed and certified. The vine stocks are in a good condition regarding age and care. Overall, the only ¼ of the harvest is made into wine by the winery itself; the rest is sold. Your grandfather never wanted to change the image of the winery and left the managerial and administrative task to a young and energetic wine-maker. Due to the not so well-known brand, the demand for the “Old Winery” wine is currently rather low. You do not intent to run the winery operatively, given your limited knowledge of winemaking, but find the idea of owning a winery exciting. Your plan is to give the winery some fresh impetus.

Roland Berger Case: Onlinestar

Solved 50.8k times
Roland Berger Case: Onlinestar Onlinestar, an online retailer of furniture and garden products (core business), has grown significantly in recent years as a result of an expansion of its product portfolio. The company mainly imports goods from Chinese manufacturers but also operates its own production of cat lavatories (special business) in Eastern Europe. The company sells its goods via Amazon and eBay, and recently via an online shop on its website. Despite this development, the financial ratios have deteriorated in recent years. In particular, the gross profit margin decreased significantly. Combined with a significant increase in shipping costs, this led to a negative result for the first time in the recently ended fiscal year and a resulting strained financial situation. Against the background of expected stagnating sales for the current financial year, short-term action is required. The board of Onlinestar asks you for an analysis of the reasons for the negative result as well as a derived recommendation for action. As a consultant, you should bring in your knowledge in online trading and develop solutions. In addition, the management board would like to receive a sales and gross profit plan from you for the current financial year.
