The digital signage media player is expected to register a CAGR of over 7.3% during the forecast period 2021-2026. Increasing installations of signage solutions in restaurants, bars, and similar establishments to enrich the customer experience will propel the digital signage media player market demand over the foreseen period. To replace the conventional way of informing customers through menu cards, these devices are utilized to power screens to display attention-grabbing advertisements and providing significant market opportunities to the sector. Furthermore, the penetration of such devices in retail is ascending following the increasing need for brand visibility, fueling the digital signage media player market demand.
  • Factors like the introduction of displays with built-in media players by manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, and NEC Display Solutions coupled with compatibility issues in old digital signage installations are impeding the digital signage media players' demand. The embedded displays have the potential to streamline the installation method as well as to enhance the performance and safety of digital signage.
  • The utilization of media players in retail chains is rapidly increasing, owing to the demand for enhancing customer interaction and streamlining business operations. In retail, digital signage has evolved as a significant marketing and advertising tool for reinforcing customer experience and branding. The screens displaying digital content in integration with the media players contribute to the brand equity and customer vibe while promoting products and values smartly. The increasing popularity of these devices can be attributed to the small, compact, and easy-to-install features suitable for the outdoor environment, video wall applications, and professional installations contributing towards the growth of the digital signage media player market.
  • The hardware segment in the digital signage media player market is set to witness significant growth. It can be attributed to the rising usage of these devices for advertising, promoting, and displaying various types of content planned for a particular set of the consumer audience. The devices allow the users to customize every aspect of the consumer's digital experience, offering an efficient way of communicating with the potential viewers and buyers. In addition, the products or goods connected to an internet network enables the users to remotely manage a wide network of digital signs and deliver compelling visual content.
