COVID-19 Impact On The Outdoor LED Display Market

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the global outdoor light-emitting diode display industry. In the face of the pandemic, new construction projects were delayed worldwide, impacting demand for various businesses. The pandemic also adversely affected the outdoor display market as a massive workforce across the globe was working from home. Many countries imposed or continue to impose lockdowns to control the spread of COVID-19. This disrupted the supply chain of different markets, including the outdoor light-emitting diode display market.

Display manufacturers were faced with difficulty in manufacturing and selling their products due to supply chain constraints in the early stages of the pandemic, affecting businesses in China, which is one of the leading display manufacturers. Furthermore, several businesses worldwide suffered significant losses, decreasing the need for outdoor advertising. The resulting reduction in spending on advertisements impacted the demand for outdoor displays. Outdoor traffic was curtailed due to stringent lockdown restrictions and people were obliged to stay at home for their safety. As a result, the need for outdoor advertising dropped significantly.

Technology Insights

In terms of technology, the market is classified into individually mounted and surface mounted. The surface mounted segment dominated the overall market, gaining a market share of 59.9% in 2022 and witnessing a CAGR of 15.3% during the forecast period. A surface mounted display is an electronic billboard or sign that is made up of a grid of LEDs that are fixed directly to a flat surface, usually a metal or plastic frame. The grid-like arrangement of the LEDs produces a sizable display that can show real-time text, pictures, and video. In contrast to individually installed displays, a surface mounted display's LED modules cannot be replaced, therefore if one LED breaks, the entire module must be changed. Despite this drawback, surface mounted displays are preferable to individually installed displays since they are lighter and simpler to install.

The individually mounted segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth, at a CAGR of 16.7% throughout the forecast period. An individually mounted display is made up of a matrix of light-emitting diodes that are mounted on separate circuit boards or modules. A large display is then made using a grid arrangement of these modules. The display is frequently used for outdoor advertising, public information, and entertainment reasons and is capable of displaying text, photos, and video in real time. The growing need for huge displays with long viewing distances is projected to push commercial builders and retailers to use this technology.

Color Display Insights

In terms of color display, the market is classified into monochrome display, tri-color display, and full color display. Among these, the full color display market is expected to dominate in 2022, gaining a market share of 42.7%. It is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 17.0% throughout the forecast period. A full-color display is a form of electronic billboard or sign that consists of a matrix of light-emitting diodes that emit various hues of light. The benefit of a full-color display is that it can create realistic, high-quality images, which makes it perfect for use in settings where visibility is crucial, including indirect sunlight. Full-color displays, however, may be more expensive and difficult to maintain than monochrome or tri-color displays.

The tri-color segment is anticipated to expand at a considerable CAGR of 15.5% throughout the forecast period. Tri-color displays are frequently used for outdoor advertising, public education, and entertainment. Tri-color displays have the benefit of producing vivid, eye-catching images, which makes them perfect for usage in settings where visibility is crucial, including in direct sunlight. However, compared to monochrome displays, tri-color displays might be more expensive and difficult to maintain. Tri-color LEDs are generally utilized in indicator lamps that may indicate three statuses or circumstances.

Application Insights

In terms of application, the market is classified into perimeter LED boards, LED billboards, LED video walls, LED traffic lights, LED mobile panels, and other LED matrix boards. The LED billboards segment dominated the market, gaining a market share of 30.9% in 2022 and witnessing a CAGR of 16.8% during the forecast period. LED billboards are typically used for outdoor advertising, public education, and entertainment. LED billboards can be seen in a variety of places, such as on highways, in cities, and during sporting events. LED billboards provide a number of benefits over conventional printed billboards, including the capacity to show dynamic, animated material, the simplicity and speed with which the content may be changed, and the ability to operate continuously. As they consume less energy and have a longer lifespan than conventional billboards, they are also more environmentally friendly.

 Global Outdoor LED Display Market Share, By Application, 2022 (%)

The LED video walls segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth at a CAGR of 17.7% throughout the forecast period. LED video walls are enormous displays comprised of numerous individual LED panels put together to make one big screen. They are frequently used for digital signs, advertising, and broadcasting in public places including shopping malls, stadiums, and concert venues. Different configurations of LED video walls are possible, such as tiled formats with individually replaceable panels or fine pixel pitch formats with significantly smaller and closer-spaced LEDs that provide seamless, high-resolution images. They are quite adaptable, enabling unique and innovative displays.
