The Global LED Displays Market was worth approximately $26.09 billion US dollars in the year 2016. By the year 2022, it is projected that this market will be valued at an estimated $54.28 billion US dollars. Over the forecasted time period of 2017 to 2022, this market will experience a compound annual growth rate of approximately 13 percent.

Light Emitting Diode Displays, more commonly referred to as LED Displays, are flat panel displays that are utilizes in general lighting applications. Some of the most common applications for LED displays include billboards or sign boards that are use in commercial spaces, public locations, stores, airports, subways, railway stations and sports arenas, among other locations. These displays are primarily used for advertising purposes or to showcase pertinent information related to time tables.

Factors Contributing to the Growth of the Global LED Displays Market

During the forecasted time period, there are several factors that are expected to fuel the growth of the LED displays market worldwide.

The significant benefits that LED lights offer over other light sources, such as fluorescent and incandescent lamps are expected to surge the augmentation of this market over the coming years. For example, LED lights are much brighter, more energy efficient, and have a longer life span than other light sources. As such, they are more cost effective, more environmentally friendly, and offer a more powerful presentation than fluorescent and incandescent lamps. Given the fact that most companies are looking for ways to cut costs and increase their revenue while reducing their carbon footprint, there is increased interest in LED light displays, and thus there will be tremendous growth in the market.

Moreover, continuous research and development for better and more innovative LED products by key vendors, including Philips and GE are expected to attract a large amount of consumers on a global scale during the forecasted time period. Additionally, the rise in infrastructure development in both developed and developing economies will give rise to an even greater need for more LED displays. For example, more railways and highways will give rise to more LED displays that can clearly showcase timetables and traffic patterns.

While the market for LED displays is expected to experience a significant compound annual growth rate in the coming years, there are factors that will likely prevent this market from developing to its fullest potential. For example, the high cost of production will likely pose a challenge for the growth of this market on a global scale. Nevertheless, the market development of display and screen backlighting will likely lead to the opening of new doors in this market, as well as an increased demand for LED displays.
