Electronic Shelf Label Market size worth over $1bn by 2024
Published Date: September 6, 2018 Author: Global Market Insights, Inc.
Electronic Shelf Label (ESL) Market size is set to exceed USD 1 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc. The global shipments are set to grow at over 16% CAGR between 2018 and 2024.
The electronic shelf label market is expected to witness a significant growth due to the increasing adoption by the retail industry. These components offer benefits such as better price visibility, reduction in pricing errors, and promotional capabilities. These advantages allow users to increase the accountability of the products and increase profit margins. The increasing competition in the retail sector is encouraging players to adopt differentiation strategies such as implementation of automation in the stores to attract the consumers.
Growing affordability of the retailers due to reduced prices of these products and low power consumption is fueling the ESL market growth. Furthermore, the features of these products including scalability, robustness, enhanced security, and high speed of operations are attracting the consumer focus. The leading retailers, such as Metro, Tesco, Carrefour, and Walmart, are increasingly expanding operations to geographies to acquire more industry share. For instance, in 2013, Carrefour announced a joint venture with CFAO to gain exclusive distribution rights in countries including Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, Cameroon, Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, and Gabon. Seven Eleven is expanding its presence in the U.S. by increasing the number of stores across the country. The increasing number of retail stores will fuel the ESL market growth.
High initial investments required to set up these products in stores is one of the major restraining factors in the electronic shelf label market. Small retailers, particularly in Asia Pacific and Africa, cannot afford the high investments required to set up infrastructure for these products. Also, these systems require additional costs such as electricity, internet connection, maintenance of hardware, and software upgrades. Small retailers prefer to employ daily labor as a cost-effective alternative to the ESL products. However, increasing awareness regarding the long-term benefits of these products is changing the perspective of the retailers, encouraging them to adopt these products.
