The global Electronic Shelf Label Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1,025.4 Mn in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 16.06 % over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Electronic shelf label (ESL) systems consist of electronic displays attached to retail shelves or fixtures that display product and pricing information without the need for paper price tags. ESL reduces the need for manual label changes and allows remote control and monitoring of shelf edge systems from the back office and distribution networks. ESL displays product and pricing information digitally and allows automatic price updates without human intervention. This reduces labor costs and errors related to manual label changes. The product information on ESLs can be wirelessly updated in real-time from a central control server allowing dynamic pricing changes.
Market key trends:
The integration of ESL systems with IoT technologies is a key trend in the market. IoT enabled ESL systems allow bidirectional communication between ESL displays, IoT edge devices and centralized control servers. IoT enabled ESL provide real-time visibility of inventory levels at each shelf and automatic updates of pricing and availability information online based on stock levels. IoT connectivity also enables predictive analytics of sales trends and automated reordering. IoT enabled ESL make retail operations more efficient by optimizing inventory management and enhancing consumer experience through seamless digital promotion of products and prices. The growing adoption of IoT solutions in retail is driving the demand for IoT integrated ESL systems.
