Report Overview

The global LED modular display market size was estimated at USD 5.49 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.2% from 2020 to 2027. The increasing adoption of LED modular displays across several applications such as retail stores, airports/ railways, media, and advertising, sports and entertainment, auditoriums, and control room is anticipated to drive the market growth over the forecast period. Furthermore, an increasing number of outdoor events, such as sports events, music concerts, product launches, brand endorsements, and political assemblies, to display live video, traditional advertising, dynamic content, and social media advertising. This is expected to surge the demand for LED modular displays. Many businesses are using advanced technologies such as augmented reality, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and big data to increase customer engagement. Retail stores use interactive displays that enable customers to try on the dresses virtually.

U.S. LED modular display market size

For instance, Nike, along with W+K Lodge, a company specializing in virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and other technologies, introduced Makers’ Experience, which uses object tracking and projection technology to get the designs to appear on the sneakers based on the selection made on a video wall. Thus, the increasing demand for the high interactive digital signage system is anticipated to surge the demand for LED modular displays over the forecast period.

High investment costs and the complexities arising during the installation of an LED modular display are key factors hampering widespread adoption of the display, especially in emerging economies. Factors such as display size, resolution of the display, configuration, mounting type, and installation location (indoor or outdoor) influence the LED modular display cost. Additionally, the technology requires a higher budget for R&D activities, which further increases the LED modular display's overall cost. This has promoted the players to offer LED modular displays on a rental basis. Manufacturers such as PixelFLEX offer LED screen rentals services and creative LED solutions.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a noticeable impact on the LED modular display market as the lockdown imposed to arrest the disease's spread has disrupted the supply chains and manufacturing operations worldwide. The demand for LED modular displays has reduced considerably as public places are closed due to the lockdowns, and no marketing activities are being carried out at public venues. Nevertheless, the demand for LED displays is expected to gain traction after the lockdown restrictions are relaxed and public gatherings and outdoor events, such as conferences, sporting meets, and concerts, among others, resume. In August 2020, the first socially distanced music concert after the COVID-19 pandemic was held in the U.K. at Newcastle’s pop-up Virgin Money Unity Arena.

Type Insights

The outdoor modular screens segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 50% in 2019 and is anticipated to sustain its dominance over the forecast period. Outdoor LED screens are particularly designed to deliver information in a visually appealing style even in harsh environmental conditions, including extreme heat, dust, and rains. The segment holds a dominant share throughout the forecast period owing to its massive demand in sophisticated applications such as perimeter boards, stadium screens scoreboards, advertising boards, and video walls. Additionally, increasing outdoor events such as sports events, music concerts, product launches, brand endorsements, and political assemblies are expected to boost the segmental growth.

Global LED modular display market share

The indoor modular screens segment is projected to expand at the highest CAGR of 13.6% over the forecast period. The increasing demand for LED video walls to display information pertaining to departure and arrival of flights, buses, and trains at airports and stations are expected to drive the segment growth. Moreover, LED video walls are considered as the most efficient and reliable video walls. They are gaining immense popularity, mainly owing to their ability to deliver high-quality and seamless images. Hence, video walls are being increasingly installed in the retail space and shopping malls.

Regional Insights

The European market accounted for the largest revenue share of around 35% in 2019. The region holds a dominant share owing to the significant demand stemming from the digital-out-of-home (DOOH) advertising projects and the growing adoption of the technologies in the U.K., Germany, Italy, and Belgium among other countries. Moreover, the increasing number of corporate exhibitions, sporting events, and live concerts are also expected to surge the demand for LED modular displays in Europe.

The Asia Pacific regional market is projected to expand at the highest CAGR of 14.8% from 2020 to 2027. The continuous developments of public venues and the subsequent adoption of modern display technologies for advertising purposes are the factors expected to witness regional growth. Besides, Asia Pacific is home to several major manufacturers, such as SHENZHEN ABSEN OPTOELECTRONIC CO., LTD, Planar, NED Display Solutions, Liantronics, Samsung, and Sony Corporation. Moreover, Japan’s LED video display shipments are expected to increase in 2021 as it prepares for the Olympic Games.
