“Increasing innovation in direct-view fine-pixel LED displays and their technological advantages driving the LFD market growth”
The large format display (LFD) market was valued at USD 9.51 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach USD 14.93 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 6.7% between 2017 and 2023. The availability of highly bright HD LFDs offering better stability, flexibility, sustainability, and environment resistance; increasing demand for brighter and power-efficient LFDs in several applications; and increased applications for digital signage are the major drivers for the market. However, factors such as increased online/broadcast advertisement and deployment of wide screen alternatives such as projectors and screenless displays are restraining the growth of the market.
“Video walls to witness the highest growth in the LFD market during the forecast period”
Video walls are constructed by joining many narrow bezel LCD or direct-view LED display tiles together. There is a huge market potential for direct-view fine-pixel LED display tiles in video wall applications as they can offer a seamless video wall, unlike the lined or interrupted video walls constructed from narrow bezel LCD tiles. Standalone displays, on the other hand, are mostly based on LCD technology and are limited by fixed size and resolution. The market share comparison of video walls and standalone displays is approximately 3:1 in the LFD market, and the trend is expected to increase during the forecast period in favor of video walls. LCD is a mature technology, which offers high picture quality at high resolution. However, it has a lower brightness level than direct-view LED displays. Direct-view LED displays, which were mostly utilized in outdoor applications, are now penetrating the indoor applications at a rapid rate owing to the introduction of fine-pixel LED displays. LCD displays, on the other hand, have a growth potential only in video wall applications where narrow bezel LCD tiles are used.
“LFDs in infrastructural industries such as sports and entertainment to witness the highest growth during the forecast period”
The infrastructural industries mostly utilize direct-view large-pixel LED display for outdoor applications. Fine-pixel LED displays are rapidly penetrating this market segment and would drive the growth of LFDs in infrastructural industries. Sports and entertainment applications would be the prime focus of major direct-view fine-pixel LED display suppliers during the forecast period. The market for infrastructural industries is expected to grow because most of the applications in these industries are outdoor and require high-brightness displays. Direct-view fine-pixel LED displays can cater to this demand by offering significant resolution. Commercial industries such as retail, hospitality, healthcare, corporate and broadcast, and government held the largest market share in 2016 and the trend is likely to continue till 2023.
“North America to hold the largest market size and APAC to witness the highest growth in the LFD market”
North America is expected to continue to hold the largest share of the LFD market owing to the high adoption rate of LFDs based on the latest technology LFDs in the regions. Early exposure to the latest display products is the driving factor for the growth of the market in the retail, transportation, and many other industries in North America. The market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2023 due to the presence of major display panel manufacturers and various brand product manufacturers in China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. Newer and high-cost displays, such as OLED and fine-pixel LED, are expected to grow at a higher rate in North America, whereas low-cost displays such as LCD and large-pixel LED are expected to witness a higher growth rate in APAC and RoW.
