Executive summary

Digital signage is an ambiguous term used in reference to a wide range of solutions forpresenting media and information on digital displays. There is no universally accepteddefinition on what the term encompasses, but it generally includes a broad range of solutionsas diverse as traffic signs, menu boards and in-flight entertainment displays. Berg Insight’sdefinition is a system that comprises a connected display screen, a media player and acontent management system that are managed over a local network or remotely. Systemsthat require manual intervention, such as swapping an SD card in the media player to loadnew content, are left outside of the scope of this report.

The first connected digital signage solutions were commercially launched about threedecades ago. Since then, digital signage solutions have found their way into nearly everypossible vertical market and a wide variety of application areas. The untapped potential is stillvast and the industry is expected to continue to experience strong annual growth rates in thecoming years. Berg Insight forecasts that global shipments of display screens for digitalsignage will grow from 17.2 million units in 2019 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR)of 13.8 percent to reach 32.8 million units by 2024. The number of digital signage displays inactive use is at the same time estimated to grow at a CAGR of 15.2 percent during the nextfive years from 63.8 million units in 2019 to 129.4 million units in 2024.
