Global Electronic Shelf Label Market Research Report

Innovative Technologies in Global Electronic Shelf Label Market

Communication technologies play an important role in the global electronic shelf label market. These provide two-way communication between the ESL tags and consumers or ESL tags and the core software. Both the type of communication is essential for efficient operations and steady revenue streams. Vendor facing, and customer-facing technology divide the ESL market. Here are the technologies that help transmit information of these tags in a large area such as supermarkets and hypermarkets in the retail industry. The global electronic shelf label market will worth around $1,675 million and is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 28% during 2018-2023.


Radio Frequency (RF)

Ultra-high frequencies in the range of 300–3,000 MHZ are the ones, which are used for the civilian communication purpose, encompassing mobile communication, WLAN, Bluetooth, Zig-Bee, GPS, two-way radios, etc. The main advantage of the RF communication is that there is no line of sight issue and hence the communication can happen without any hindrance. The leading vendors are using this technology to communicate with the base station and ESL tags.

RF products in electronic shelf label market: SES Imagotag ESL tags have an operating frequency of 2.400-2.480 GHz, which is near the Wi-Fi frequency. M2Communication and Displaydata ESL tags with an operating frequency of sub 1GHz which is untroubled by interference are revolutionizing the global ESL market.

Infrared (IR)

IR is electromagnetic radiation with a longer wavelength than the visible light. IR signals have higher data rates compared to radio frequency signals. The two major types of IR signals used for communication in the global electronic shelf label market are directed or diffused. The use of these IR technologies for ESL tags create no problem of interference from the crowded radio frequency range in large areas of retail stores.

IR products in electronic shelf label market: Pricer, an in-store digital shelf-edge solution provider, use diffuse IR as the communication technology that has no line of sight issues and increases in-store experience for consumers.

Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)

BLE (aka Bluetooth Smart) is the newly adopted to the Bluetooth specification, and it operates at sub 1GHZ radio frequency. Proximity capabilities that are introduced with BLE have enabled the proliferation of location-based services such as beaconing and geo-fencing applications across industries in the global market.
