Market Overview:
Electronic shelf labels, also known as electronic price labels, are used in retail stores to display product pricing and other information on store shelves in real-time. They enable changes in price and product information electronically without physically printing new labels. ESLs improve store operations, reduce pricing errors, and enhance customer experience by allowing real-time changes to pricing and product information.

Market key trends:
One of the key trends driving growth of the electronic shelf labels market is the rising adoption of digital signage and real-time pricing strategies by retailers. ESLs allow retailers to change and update pricing information in real-time on store shelves based on factors such as daily/weekly discounts, location-based pricing, pricing to match competitors, promotional pricing for loyalty programs, etc. This helps retailers maximize sales and profits by optimizing product pricing. ESLs also provide the ability to display additional product information such as nutrition information, ingredients, care instructions, and sustainability claims. This enhanced product information improves the shopping experience for customers. Furthermore, ESLs enable inventory management through automated electronic updates to shelf tags, thus improving store operations efficiency for retailers.
