This market research report identifies suppliers like Altierre, Displaydata.com, Pricer, SES-imagetag, and Teraoka Seiko to be the key vendors in the electronic shelf labels market in the US. It also presents a detailed segmentation of the global market by retail store format (supermarkets, convenience stores, drug stores and pharmacies) and by wireless solutions (radio frequency, infrared and others).

Overview of the electronic shelf labels market in the US

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the electronic shelf labels market in the US to grow steadily at a CAGR of above 20% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for this market is the capability of electronic shelf label (ESL) to provide real-time and dynamic pricing. ESL allows for real-time and dynamic pricing, which enables brick-and-mortar retailers to remain competitive with online retailers (by allowing them to match their prices) that can respond to the changing market conditions faster. Retailers use revenue management and price optimization techniques to increase sales and profits. They also use dynamic pricing and change product prices based on different marketing strategies. Such strategies include happy hour pricing, end-of-the-day markdown for fresh products, bundles, loyalty discounts, and limited time discounts. These benefits of electronic shelf labels are expected to propel the growth of the electronic shelf labels market in the US during the forecast period. 

One of the latest trends gaining traction in this market is the exponentially growing demand for smart ESLs. Smart ESLs enable retailers to add more data to the labels, including promotional messages, promotional discounts, and stock information that boost sales and improve in-store experience. Additionally, these smart ESLs allow stores to automatically and instantly update and align them in-store prices with their online stores to provide a unified shopping experience. These advantages of the smart ESL are expected to augment growth in the electronic shelf labels market in the US in the coming years.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The ESL market in the US is highly fragmented due to the presence of several small and large vendors present across the region. The intense competition among the vendors, coupled with rapid technological changes, poses a significant risk to vendor operations. The increase in competition among vendors has led to the industry witnessing consolidation, wherein smaller entities are being acquired by or are being merged with major players.

Leading vendors in the market are –

  • Altierre
  • Displaydata.com
  • Pricer
  • SES-imagotag
  • Teraoka Seiko

Other prominent vendors in the ESL market include Advantech, E Ink, Eltrade, LG Innotek, NZ Electronic Shelf Labeling, SAMSUNG ELECTRO-MECHANICS, S o l u M Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions, and Wuxi Wei Feng Technology.

Segmentation by retail store format and analysis of the ESL market

  • Supermarkets, hypermarket, and department stores
  • Convenience stores (including specialty retailers)
  • Drug stores and pharmacies

During 2016, the supermarkets, hypermarkets, and departmental stores segment dominated the ESL market and accounted for a major part of the overall market share. The need to enhance customer satisfaction, eliminate costs, and enable stores to compete in a price-sensitive environment, has led to an increase in the demand for ESLs by these stores.

Segmentation by wireless solutions and analysis of the ESL market

  • Radio frequency
  • Infrared

In this market study, analysts have estimated the radio frequency segment to dominate the ESL market during the forecast period. The low cost of installation and maintenance of the radio frequency technology is the key factor responsible for the dominance of this segment in the global market.
