Report Says Dynamic Digital Signage Displays Increased Nearly 20% in 2016

According to a new report from Berg Insight, a Swedish research firm, global shipments of connected, digital-signage displays are estimated to have grown 19.7% to 10.5 million units in 2016. Shipments to North America reached 3.0 million units, the report states.

Market growth was driven by greater demand for digital-signage solutions in all market verticals, technological advancements and a continued decline in prices, the report adds.

Berg Insight forecasts that global shipments of connected digital signs will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.7% in the next five years to reach 22.9 million units by 2021. As a result, the number of connected digital signage displays in active use worldwide will grow at a CAGR of 18.3% from an estimated 37.6 million in 2016 to 87.2 million units in 2021.

Berg describes the digital-signage industry as “highly fragmented.”
