Electronic Shelf Label Market in Europe Forecast 2019–2025
- Domain: Electronics & Semiconductors - Electronics & Semiconductors
Increasing interest in creating a dynamic pricing environment in the brick & mortar retail segment is accelerating the growth of the electronic shelf label market in Europe
Electronic shelf labels (ESL) are digital tags predominately used in retail facilities to display product pricing. These electronic shelf labels are available in two display modules: LCD and e-paper display. The LCD electronic shelf label is a relatively low-cost system that utilizes the liquid-crystal display (LCD) module. The demand for LCD ESL is majorly from small- and mid-level retailers due to its cost advantage and shorter span of ROI. The e-paper ESL uses e-paper display modules that offer a high-deﬁnition graphical display look. The e-paper display consumes extremely less power when compared to an LCD as it is bi-stable in nature, i.e., consumes power only while updating the images and data. Electronic shelf labels are deemed as the smart retail solution as these tags allow dynamic pricing, help shoppers geolocate products in-store, and enable customers to interact with display tags by using their smartphones through NFC or QR codes.
Market Dynamics – Electronic Shelf Label Market in Europe
Increasing focus on minimizing labor cost and inclination toward integrating price automation solutions in retail settings are the key factors propelling the growth of the electronic shelf label market in Europe during the forecast period. In recent years, the brick-and-mortar retail segment in Europe is undergoing a major shift toward digital technologies in order to provide a superior shopping experience to customers. Retailers are focusing on expanding their IT capabilities that seemingly enhance the shopping experience of the customer right from product identification (geolocating any individual product) to billing.
Increasing focus on eliminating time-consuming, complex manual processes to update paper tags coupled with mounting adoption of paperless strategies for the information displayed in-store is the key factor contributing to the growth of the electronic shelf label market in the Europe region.
Additionally, the emergence of online retail channels has improved the consumers’ ability to easily compare the price of products available in retail outlets with online channels. Due cost advantages, customer inclination toward the e-commerce platform is increasing year-on-year.
As a result, the brick-and-mortar retail segment is increasingly focusing on framing pricing strategies based on advanced retail technologies such as electronic shelf labels to update the price of in-store products multiple times throughout the day/week based on market trend and customer behavior. These factors are further accelerating the growth of the electronic shelf label market in Europe during the forecast period.
However, the deployment of electronic shelf labels involves various cost factors, such as equipment cost, installation cost, software cost, license cost, and maintenance cost. Concerns related to return on investments (RoI) and complexity in integrating with the existing infrastructure are identified as restraints likely to deter the progression of the electronic shelf label market in Europe during the forecast period.
