Report Code: SE 4073 Jan, 2018, by marketsandmarkets.com
Updated date -

The electronic shelf label market size was valued at USD 302.2 Million in 2016 and is expected to be worth USD 1,424.8 Million by 2023, at a CAGR of 23.98% during the forecast period. The base year considered for this report is 2016, and the forecast period for the market has been considered between 2017 and 2023.

Electronic Shelf Label Market Dynamics

Trending retail automation

The technological revolution, in terms of automation, across the retail industry has proved effectively beneficial for retailers. The inclination of this industry toward reducing the total operational costs by eliminating manual operations in stores is propelling the adoption of automation solutions across the retail industry. The trending retail automation is also fueling the adoption of electronic shelf labels (ESLs) across all type of retail stores, including hypermarkets, supermarkets, and specialty stores. Furthermore, the implementation of ESLs in retail stores enables dynamic and omnichannel pricing; it also helps reduce labor input by eliminating manual operations. Furthermore, the ESLs can also allow retailers to reuse the tags with low maintenance costs. These features can effectively accelerate the adoption of ESLs, thereby driving the growth of the market.

High expenses of installation and supporting infrastructure

Deployment of ESL technology might seem costly for the unorganized retailers, as a retailer needs to implement additional shelves that are electrified to accept the electronic shelf labels tags or be compatible with electronic shelf labels, which in turn increases the installation expenses. In addition, retailers/companies always analyze the benefits of any technology before deploying it, with regard to their investment and time taken for the return on investment (ROI). For an unorganized retail market in economically developing countries, such as South Korea and India, the cost of technology is a major restraint as the deployment of these labels also demands the supporting infrastructure, which calls for large investments for small- and medium-scale retailers. The retail industry in India is in a nascent stage, where the population lacks the knowledge of the principles of modern retailing. In these markets, retailers are not willing to invest much in the technology because the operational cost for modern retailing is already high; for instance, high rentals, expensive manpower, and price wars lead to increased costs. Therefore, the high installation expenses are likely to hinder the market throughout the forecast period.

The objective of this report is to define, describe, and forecast the market size and growth potential of the ESL market across different segments such as component, product type, communication technology, store type, and geography. This includes the forecast of the market size, in terms of value, with respect to 4 main geographies, namely, North America, Europe, APAC, and RoW. The study identifies and analyzes the market dynamics such as drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges for the market. The report also profiles the key players operating in the ESL market. The growth of this market is driven by the factors such as increasing operational efficiency with real-time product positioning, more cost-efficient and less time-consuming alternative to paper labels, and trending retail automation.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the market begins by capturing the revenues and sales volume of the key players and their shares in the market. Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) is one of a few organizations associated with the market. Calculations based on this led to the overall market size. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market has been split into several segments and subsegments which have then been verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with industry experts such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. The data triangulation and market breakdown procedures have been employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of profiles of the primary respondents is depicted in the below figure:

According to the MarketsandMarkets forecast, electronic shelf labels market is expected to be worth USD 392.3 Million in 2017 and USD 1,424.8 Million by 2023, at a CAGR of 23.98% between 2017 and 2023. The major drivers for the market include trending retail automation, more cost-efficient and less time-consuming alternative to paper labels, and increased operational efficiency with real-time product positioning.

The report covers the ESL market on the basis of component, product type, communication technology, store type, and geography. The displays component held the largest share of the ESL market in 2016. LCDs and e-paper displays are being used in ESLs. The manufacturers of ESL, such as Displaydata (UK), are integrating the latest electrophoretic display (EPD) technology in labels.

On the basis of product type, full-graphic e-paper ESL held the largest share of the market in 2016, and the market for full-graphic e-paper ESL is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Full-graphic e-paper ESLs use e-papers as their display component; these are the advanced version of segmented e-paper displays. The major benefit of these labels is the energy-efficiency and its ability to project graphical objects, such as logos and callouts, facilitating real-time product positioning.

The ESL market based on store type was dominated by hypermarkets owing to the complications associated with the manual management of such big stores, leading to the high rate of adoption of these labels. Using ESLs allows hypermarkets to update the prices and other product-related information in much less time. The major benefits of using ESLs in these stores are digital price tagging and superior product management. These uniform electronic labels contribute to the organized and high-quality pharmacies and electronic stores

Electronic Shelf Labels Market

Europe dominated the ESL market, in terms of size, in 2016;; however, the market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The ESL market in APAC is subsegmented into China, Japan, South Korea, and Rest of APAC. In addition, APAC is not a lucrative market for ESLs currently; only the prominent countries such as China, Japan, Australia, Singapore, and South Korea have a significant market potential. The economy modernization programs conducted in various APAC countries are creating the growth opportunities for the ESL market players. In addition to this, the expansion of large-scale retailers in this region is also responsible for the expected high growth rate of the market in this region.

Low labor cost in economically developing countries may appear as a challenge for manufacturers in ESL market. The major vendors in electronic shelf labels market are Pricer (Sweden), SES-imagotag (France), Samsung Electro-Mechanics (South Korea), E Ink Holdings (Taiwan), Displaydata (UK), M2Communication (Taiwan), Diebold Nixdorf (Germany), Opticon Sensors Europe (Netherlands), Teraoka Seiko (Japan), and NZ Electronic Shelf Labelling (New Zealand). These players adopted various strategies such as product launches and developments, contracts, acquisitions, partnerships, and business expansions to cater to the needs of the market.
