  1. Growing deployment in supermarkets

Shifting consumer preference and the penetration of IoT in supermarkets have played a pivotal role in driving the use of ESLs in emerging economies such as China. The use of e-paper displays to replace paper pricing labels has brought a paradigm shift as companies seek to cash in opportunities to digitize the retail environment. To illustrate, in November 2020, Walmart Inc., KKR & Co. Inc., and Rakuten, Inc. announced that KKR purchased a majority stake, while a new Rakuten subsidiary purchased a minority stake in Seiyu GK. They are likely to expedite investments in app-based shopping, payment and delivery services across Japan. The solutions could include the deployment of electronic shelf labels in stores regionwide.

The electronic version of price tags, with growing preference for seamless omnichannel experience, has brought a notable shift in display of in-store prices. The innate ability to engage in real-time dynamic pricing and connect stores and online have brought accurate pricing across channels to the fore. The upsides of reacting to competitors at the click of a switch could be the new norm as end-users focus on in-store marketing and efficiencies.
