COVID-19 Impact on the Global Digital Signage Media Player

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the market, as the manufacturing facilities were closed in the early phase and work from home trends have decreased demand. However, the scenario expanded the scope of marketing through digital signage media players across many industries, especially in hospitals and public places, which utilized the technology for displaying important information. The impact was different across several regions. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, 80% to 90% of all digital signage media players were used for primary digital poster purposes. Moreover, the cost was high in many European countries. This aided the market for media players in a pre-COVID situation. Even during the lockdown scenario, in retail and restaurant industries, 70 to 80% of customers buy inside the restaurant, and only 20% is drive-thru as most restaurants do not even offer drive-thru. Therefore, in countries, like Germany, many vendors have been utilizing digital signage media player solutions.

Retail chains, like McDonald's and KFC, were open in Europe, but the user could only pick up stuff and leave the store again. Due to these scenarios, many companies expanded their product offering in the region. In these socially distanced public spaces, digital signage media players have been adopted at newer arenas. Building owners to communicate procedures and protocols, business/residential information was shared via the display of the inspiring, vibrant imagery across large-scale, dynamic presentations. Responding to the sustained proliferation of video walls, the pandemic-related shifts, majorly on how content is shared, led Visix to add a four-output media player to its lineup with many new features. By responding to customer feedback, the company made the new player easier to set up while standardizing its multi-output player lineup on Nvidia Pascal GPUs. The new model comprises 8 GB of memory, 256 GB SSD storage, built-in wireless, and a Windows 10 IoT Enterprise OS.

Global Digital Signage Media Player Market Dynamics

Drivers: Trends Favoring the Growth of Context-Aware Advertising and Enrich Customer Experience

The majority of the traditional advertising that is printed signage has been replaced with digital signage media player, aiming at customer attraction and satisfaction through cost-effectiveness in the long run. Printed signages were single usage messages, including billboards and posters, which get disposed of very frequently due to the current dynamicity of content marketing. Increased digital advertising spending and allocated budgets by the companies toward digitization are the major reasons for the high adoption rate of these devices from the commercial segment. In particular, a digital signage media player coupled with Bluetooth/BLE offers a compelling combination in contextual marketing. Beacon-enabled mobile apps catch customer data to broadcast personalized messages. For the same, media player providers need to embed the required connectivity.

The retail sector is a widely adopted segment and had the highest investment in the digital signage media player used for advertising. With one major challenge being coordinating marketing campaigns while accommodating the individual needs of various locations, adopting a robust digital signage media player system is assisting the retail stakeholders to indulge in a much easier process. For instance, Acme Tools, a tools retailer, found out recently. In order to meet these marketing demands, Acme Tools resorted to Carousel Digital Signage Media Player and BrightSign for advanced digital signage media player solutions. Carousel Digital Signage Media Player offers a cloud-based content management system mainly overlooking the content upload and scheduling across multiple locations.

This not only eases installation but simplifies upgrades and reduces maintenance. Interoperability is another major concern in the market studied. This is highly dependent on creating standardized hardware with communicability and a platform of interoperability. Since the whole digital signage media player ecosystem involves multiple stakeholders, this fragmentation needs to end via collaborations and open-source technological adoption.

Hardware, by component, is accounted for the largest market share

By component, the digital signage media player has been segmented into hardware and software. Hardware, by component, accounted for the largest market share of 72.6% in 2020. The hardware of a digital signage media player setup includes physical components, such as screens (digital displays), media players, network components, mounts, or enclosures. Digital signs use LCD, LED, and Projection to display digital images, video, streaming media, and information.

A media player is a bridge between CMS software and digital screens. Some commercial monitors are configured as System on a Chip (SoC) players such that they do not require an external media player to connect to. The SoC on such devices is responsible for containing the CPU, GPU, RAM, storage, connectivity options, video codecs, and output. Media players are offered in several sizes. Android-based media players are generally small, ranging from the size of a USB stick to a palmtop computer.

On the other hand, media players that operate on Windows are more prominent, sizing up to home PCs. Most modern media players and TVs support HDMI and other cables, such as VGA, DVI, composite cable, etc. The screen's orientation also matters, with vertical portrait and horizontal landscape being the two primary choices. Mounting a screen vertically allows users to fit more information on a display, but horizontal displays are more readily available and easy to use as displays. Interactive digital signage media players can further include the audience by touching and controlling the screens.
