An Electronic shelf label (ESL) system stands for a tool that is used by retailers to display specific product information and price on the shelves. It provides an electronic linkage between the store checkout system and product shelves, thereby ensuring accurate product pricing. Furthermore, the ESL system comes with high durability, prolonged shelf life, replaceable batteries, and can be updated from time to time without any hassle. Owing to the rising trend of automation, electronic shelf labels are widely adopted by all kinds of retail stores, including supermarkets, hypermarkets, specialty stores, departmental stores, etc.

In recent times, the high prevalence of technological revolution across the retail industry of both the developed and developing regions have augmented the demand for ESL systems. Furthermore, the developing economies, such as China and India, have emerged as substantial markets for retail automation. Several retailers are adopting retail automation solutions for improved consumer satisfaction, automatic price updates, reduced operational and labor costs, and efficient store management. In addition to this, the rapid integration of full graphic e-papers with ESL systems has positively influenced the development of in-store communication solutions. Moreover, various technological advancements, for instance, the introduction of ESL systems based on radio frequency (RF) communication technology, are expected to fuel the growth of the global electronic shelf label market in the coming years.
