The electronic shelf label (ESL) system is utilized by retailers to interact with the users, update required information on the shelving signage, and automate the process of updating the price displays and product information on the shelves. It has replaced the traditional shelf label system that requires printing paper tags and changing them manually. The employment of ESL is improving the accuracy and smooth functioning of businesses across the globe by minimizing pricing errors. They are widely available in a vast array of sizes, colors, fonts, templates and fastening solutions to meet the requirements of the end users.

Global Electronic Shelf Label (ESL) Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by an increase in the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in the retail sector. In order to distinguish themselves from the online retail platforms, brick and mortar stores are now becoming digitalized. Consequently, they are employing smart shelves and ESL systems in their stores to automate inventory management and optimize the overall workflow. They have also started installing ESLs with LED-light indicators, owing to their low power consumption, high brightness and enhanced resolution. Apart from this, the burgeoning retail sector in emerging economies is expected to offer numerous growth opportunities to the new entrants, thereby positively impacting the market growth. The installation of these systems will reduce labor and operational costs, which is expected to boost their overall sales. Furthermore, advanced technologies, including Wi-Fi, Near Field Communication (NFC), radio frequency (RF) and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), are now being integrated with these systems to improve their overall functioning. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market has been estimated to reach a value of US$ 2,017.9 Million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 18.53% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
