In addition, the integration of biometric technology with modern digitized signs has developed products, such as track heat paths and gaze tracking.

Gaze tracking technology helps in locating the area, which is crowded with a greater number of consumers, thereby helping the companies to track the consumer behavior for effective marketing of products. Thus, the growing use of the aforementioned technology is expected to strengthen the demand in the next few years. Eventually, the growing awareness among the consumers regarding the drawbacks and complexity of traditional advertising, such as short-lived print marketing and so on, is instigating digitized advertisement adoption. Furthermore, display designers, researchers, and advertisement companies are spending more on the improvement of the product’s display technology.

All these factors are expected to catalyze the overall industry growth. With the advancement in display technologies, the evolution of LCD, LED, UHD, OLED, and Super AMOLED is further strengthening the industry growth. These technologies have led to the enhancement of the quality of advertisement content, thus creating a favorable impact on the target audience. The adoption of such technologies by digital poster providers is anticipated to boost the overall industry growth.

On the basis of types, the global market has been further segmented into video walls, video screens, transparent LED screens, digital posters, kiosks, and others. The video walls segment accounted for the largest share of more than 27.0% of the global revenue in 2021. Video walls and screens have captured a major market share across shopping malls and other public places. However, the kiosks segment is estimated to account for the maximum revenue share by 2030 becoming the largest type segment in the global market. Kiosks are generally used to provide information and for advertising in institutes and retail verticals.

On the other hand, the transparent LED screens segment is expected to be the fastest-growing type segment over the forecast period. Transparent LED screens are capable of offering a transparency level beyond 80% coupled with high resolution. In addition, they are adequately efficient, in terms of energy, thus, reducing energy consumption and optimizing the overhead expenditure of users. All these factors are anticipated to catapult the demand for transparent LED screens in the next six years, thereby supporting the growth of the segment.

Component Insights

The hardware components segment accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 57.0% in 2021 and is anticipated to maintain its position during the forecast period. Hardware components consist of displays, components required to manufacture a digital panel, banners, and so on. Compared to software, the hardware requirement is huge, and thus, the segment accounts for a large share in the industry. The growing number of innovative display technologies, such as 1080p, 4K, and 8K display, is expected to propel the demand for hardware components in the coming years. Advancement in 3D technology has developed glasses-free 3D displays. Such displays are used in the product.

Furthermore, the graphics design agencies are shifting their focus towards 3D holographic display cases. HYPERVSN, a European provider of holographic technology, is providing them for numerous applications, from advertising in malls to showpieces at trade shows. The services segment registers a comparatively lower demand owing to fewer maintenance and service issues occurring in the product. The services offered in the industry include integration & installation, maintenance, and consulting. The installation of a digital display and internet connectivity are the major services involved here. Therefore, the service offerings are quite cheaper as compared to the hardware and software requirements. This leads to a lesser market share.

Application Insights

On the basis of applications, the global market has been divided into retail, hospitality, entertainment, stadiums & playgrounds, corporate, banking, healthcare, education, and transportation. The retail application segment accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 20.0% in 2021. The retail sector is the most prominent sector demanding digitized advertisements for marketing and promoting the products and services. The competition among the retailers owing to the variety of product offerings in the industry has led to the growing awareness of effective marketing strategies. Thus, digital posters are adopted largely in the retail sector as digitized advertising is an effective way of marketing a product, which attracts the attention of target consumers.

However, the transportation segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The transportation sector includes the application of digitized promotions & posters at airports, railway stations, metro stations, and bus stands. In addition, the digital display is also extensively used on the roads over cabs, public transport buses, and other vehicles that advertise products and services. Owing to the rapid urbanization and the development of the transportation sector in emerging countries, the advertisement industry is expected to grow, ultimately boosting the growth of the market for digital signage.

Location Insights

The in-store location segment accounted for the largest market share of over 71% in 2021. The in-store locations include the deployment of digital posters within closed premises, such as malls, corporate offices, retail shops, banks, and healthcare centers. The high share of this segment can be attributed to the heavy demand from retail stores as the retail sector is the most promising application sector for digital displays for advertisement purposes. The segment is also predicted to maintain its position in the global market and exhibit a steady growth rate over the forecast period due to the consistent demand.

However, the demand from the out-store location segment is expected to exhibit the fastest CAGR over the forecast years. The demand at out-store locations is expected to rise owing to the growing transportation sector, especially in developing countries. In addition, the rising need of promoting products effectively and on a large scale and emerging popular trends, such as election campaigns, introductory offers on products & services, and the increasing number of live concerts & shows, are likely to boost the adoption of digital posters in open premises, thereby augmenting the out-store segment growth.

Content Category Insights

On the basis of content category, the global market has been further bifurcated into broadcast and non-broadcast. The broadcast content category segment is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing segment over the forecast period. The broadcast content category is further segmented into news, weather, sports, and others. The sports sub-segment dominated the market in 2021. The increasing adoption of digital signage for displaying sports-related content across the stadiums and sports grounds during tournaments is driving the growth of this sub-segment.

The news category is likely to account for a considerable share as well, followed by the sports content category. These segments are anticipated to witness significant growth in the forthcoming years owing to the rapidly increasing demand from the corporate sectors where digital signage is used extensively for communication purposes. In addition, the weather forecast is displayed majorly in external premises, such as roads and transport facilities along with offices. The market for weather content is projected to maintain its share and generate stable revenue over the coming years.

Technology Insights

On the basis of technologies, the market has been further segmented into LED, LCD, and projection. The LED segment accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 46% in 2021. LCD technology is one of the most extensively adopted technologies in the advertisement & marketing industry. The ease of producing LCDs and their lower manufacturing costs are a few factors behind the significant adoption of LCD technology in digital posters. However, LEDs have successfully made a mark as a standard product with their high-quality display. Manufacturers remain aspirant in the designing of flat-paneled, larger, brighter, and slimmer displays.

The below 32 inches screen size segment accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 40.7% in 2021. The high share is attributed to the greater adoption of this type of signage in the retail sector. Shop dimensions are one of the most important reasons for concern in retail shops. Due to the limitations of the area, the adoption of smaller-sized digital advertisements is greater. Thus, the segment accounted for a high market share and is anticipated to dominate the industry over the forecast period.

However, the industry is changing considerably, in terms of the size specifications and demands, due to the necessity of enhanced and enlarged advertisement content to have an impact on customers. The market for 32 to 52 inches digital posters is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the increasing demand from the healthcare, corporate, and retail sectors. The demand for posters sized more than 52 inches is also expected to grow notably on account of the significantly expanding transportation sector and flourishing advertisement industry. In addition, the increasing demand across out-store locations is fuelling the above 52 inches screen size segment growth and is expected to exhibit steady growth over the forecast period.

Regional Insights

North America emerged as the dominant regional market in 2021 with a revenue share exceeding 34.5%, followed by Europe. The high share is attributed to the growing presence of dedicated suppliers of the product along with rising demand for signage in the retail industry. The U.K., Germany, and the U.S., in particular, are projected to exhibit considerable growth primarily due to the rising R&D activities by companies to enhance product quality and increasing government initiatives to install digital signage at various offices for maintaining continuous information flow systems. Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period.

The growth can be attributed to the growing awareness regarding the benefits of digital signage. India and China are anticipated to witness significant growth primarily due to the rising application in retail stores, corporate offices, hospitals, and hotels. Increasing disposable income has surged the visitors in the malls and multiplex stores in the emerging countries of Asia Pacific. Enterprise is therefore leveraging this opportunity to promote their offerings through large displays, which helps them attract the targeted audience in a better manner. With the rising number of shopping malls and multiplexes, the adoption of digital signage in the hospitality industry is expected to increase over the forecast period.
