Spurring demand for automation products in retail industry is the key driver of global ESL market. Stringent government rules in developed countries for precise product pricing influences the retailers looking for ESL systems. Increased revenues as well as the reduction in labor costs and real time product positioning by adapting ESLs fuel the market. However availability of cheap labor in developing countries, possible technical glitches due to the wireless technologies used for communication and high initial investment may hamper the growth of the ESL market.
The emergence of Near Field communication technology (NFC) and growing adaption of this technology in ESL offers opportunities for more research and development to build even more sophisticated ESL systems. The raising retail industry market in Asia Pacific region also offering plethora of opportunities. As the adaption of ESLs increase, various other firms start getting into the ESL market which in turn creates opportunities. However lack of experience and domain/technical expertise of the new market entrants is a challenge to overcome.
The global ESL market can be segmented based on the following criteria: Type of Product (LCDs, Segmented e-Paper ESLs, Full Graphic e-Paper ESLs), Type of Store (Hyper markets, super markets, non-food retail stores and specialty stores), Communication technology (RF, IR NFC and Visible light communications), Component (Displays, Batteries, Transceivers, processors and others) and Geography (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, MEA and Rest of the world). Full graphic e-Paper ESLs are expected to hold the major share of global ESL market based on product type.
Due to presence of major ESL manufacturers and end users, Europe will be having the major share of global ESL market and APAC market is estimated to grow with higher rate in the forecast period. The key market players of global ESL market includes Store Electronic Systems, Pricer AB, Displaydata, M2Communicaiton, Imagotag GmbH, E Ink Holding Inc., Samsung Electro-Mechanics and LG, Wincor Nixdorf, Advantech U.S Inc. and Altierre Corp.
