EDG research reports large area display market growing but it could slow

April 3, 2007
Date Announced: 03 Apr 2007 The large area display and information systems industry has had a steady history of successful growth from 2001-2005. From 2001-2004, the market for large area displays grew at an average annual rate of 12%. But for 2005, the market grew by 19% reaching $3.2 billion. Reasons for the increased growth include the deployment of advertising system displays by the major outdoor billboard companies. According to market research firm EDG Research in its recently released report Large Area Displays & Information Systems, the commercial market still accounted for 36% of the large area display market in 2006. EDG Research warns that as large area display pricing continues to fall ahead of demand and the possibility of buying patterns from key display users change, the market may enter a period of slower or zero growth. For the next five years, growth rates may be expected to be in the range of 10-12% per year. However, even with these lower growth rates, the market is still expected to reach $6.1 billion in 2011, twice the level of 2006. Emerging applications such as advertising networks, mobile rental and sports will drive growth.
