High hopes for market potential of outdoor LED display technology

The digital signage and digital out of home companies polled in the DBCI all see a high to very high potential for LED display technology in competition to LCD displays within the next 24 months.

Over the last years, improvements in LED display technology have resulted in a lower pixel pitch. Together with a rapid increase in competition and falling prices the market potential of LED display technology will further increase in the next years. While NEC already has LED technology in their portfolio, other big players like Samsung and LG have noted this trend and duly seek a fast market entrance.
