Market Overview

The Large Format Display Market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.6% over the forecast period 2021 to 2026. The large display market has witnessed many crucial technological advancements in the past few years, such as direct-view fine-pixel LED display technology and the narrow bezel LCD displays. The previously used bulky and space-consuming displays have evolved into bezel-less and slim displays. The display devices currently being used for various purposes have improved contrast ratio, high resolution, and consume less power compared to the traditional displays.

  • The recent advancements in display technologies and the adoption of digital connectivity are expected to result in the rapid adoption of public information displays (PID). According to Samsung, the PID market is expected to reach annual PID unit shipments of 10.2 million by 2020.
  • The affordable price of digital displays and increasing panel size are few other factors resulting in the entry of new players that find unique product implementations, which is further helping in digital screen adoption. The replacement of billboards with digital signage that comprises LEDs in many countries has aided the growth of the large format LED display products.
  • With the increasing complexity around online advertising, coupled with the premium pricing charged for ad blockers, marketing and advertising companies are looking for alternative solutions that may enable them to display their advertisements or messages. This presents the outdoor large format display segment with a lucrative opportunity, which may boost its adoption over the forecast period.
  • According to the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA), in 2018, the top spenders, in terms of out-of-home advertisements, included Geico, Netflix, Google, American Express, Apple, McDonalds, Metro by T-Mobile, Amazon, M&Ms, Chevrolet, Facebook, and Universal Pictures, among others, with Apple and McDonalds retaining their top spots.
  • The technological advancements in the display technology have led to the incorporation of touchscreen technology into the large format displays that are able to offer enhanced user experience. The major applications of these touchscreen displays are in corporate meetings, control rooms, retail stores, and educational institutes. Major vendors in the market are offering touchscreen displays to cater to the rising demand from consumers.
  • However, at the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, players are focusing on the innovation based on touchless technologies for the interactive large format displays. Large display interaction using hover and capacitive imaging of all objects and people near the display surface is an intuitive new way to interact.
  • The rising applications of large format displays in the digital signages are creating significant number of opportunities for the market studied. According to Dentsu Aegis Network, the ad spend in Western Europe during FY 2018 stood at 3.9% (Yo-Y), and it is expected to see a 3.3% growth by 2020, whereas Central & Eastern Europe's growth during FY 2018 stood at 8.6%, and it is expected reach 6.2% by 2020.
  • As interactivity becomes more central to new digital signage network deployments, the technology is likely to evolve from single-touch displays to multi-touch screens, before ultimately transitioning into multi-user, multi-touch, and ultra-HD/4K displays.
  • For instance, in January 2020, Panasonic Corporation delivered a wide range of equipment essential to the Tokyo National Stadium operation with large screen displays and approximately 600 digital signage systems, the largest number of such systems ever delivered, to the National Stadium.
