According to this latest publication from Meticulous Research®, the smart shelves market is projected to reach $10.62 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 22.8% from 2023 to 2030.

Based on offering, the global smart shelves market is segmented into hardware, software, and services. In 2023, the hardware segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global smart shelves market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to factors such as the rising number of smart stores, growing adoption of electronic shelf labels for automated pricing, order picking, monitoring products, and asset information.
In addition, the rising focus of key players on product development and enhancement is also expected to drive market growth. For instance, in February 2023 , Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

However, the software segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Growing need for smart shelve software among retailers to update the pricing of goods, real-time tracking of virtually all on-shelf inventory, and a growing need to analyze the data collected from the shelves to produce business insights. Several players operating in the market provide smart shelf management software. For instance, Scandit AG (Switzerland) offers ShelfView, a shelf management software that empowers more intelligent and efficient store operations for inventory localization and execution of prices and promotions.
Based on application, the global smart shelves market is broadly segmented into inventory management, remote monitoring, demand forecasting, pricing management, and other applications. In 2023, the inventory management segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global smart shelves market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to growing competition between retailers, the crucial need to optimize shelf stock, and the rising use of electronic shelf labels by retailers to accurately track inventory levels in real time, ensuring faster replenishment and better control of pricing, and inventory availability for customers.
However, the demand forecasting segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is driven by factors such as the rising need to optimize inventory levels, reduce stockouts and overstocks, improve customer satisfaction, and enhance supply chain efficiency are expected to drive the segment growth.
Based on end user, the global smart shelves market is broadly segmented into hypermarkets, supermarkets, department stores, specialty stores, warehouses, and other end users. In 2023, the hypermarkets segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global smart shelves market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the increasing adoption of advanced technologies, the growing use of digitalized price labels for dynamic pricing, increased competition between e-commerce and physical stores, and the growing use of automated checkout systems.
For instance, in April 2023, SES-Imagotag (France), the global leader in digital solutions for physical retail, entered into an agreement with Walmart Inc. (U.S.), an American multinational retail corporation, to initiate the deployment of the latest-generation VUSION platform within several hundred Walmart U.S. stores.
However, the department stores segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is driven by the rising focus of department stores on providing a high level of services, greater convenience to customers by offering a variety of products under one roof, increased use of smart shelves with digital displays for personalized advertisements, the need for automated processes in stores, and crucial need of continuous tracking and managing stocks in department stores.
Based on geography, the global smart shelves market is segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. In 2023, Asia-Pacific is expected to account for the largest share of the global smart shelves market. The large market share of the region is attributed to the presence of rapidly developing economies, the growing technology investment in the retail sector to address changed consumer expectations on the shopping experience, and the increased use of electronic shelf labels at retail for providing an enhanced customer experience.
Moreover, the Asia-Pacific region is also projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this region is driven by factors such as the indispensable requirement of retailers to digitalize their traditional business operations, the recent development of the Bluetooth electronic shelf label standard and the rapidly increasing e-commerce, and the rising focus of key players on the development of low power electronic shelf label are creating demand for warehouse management.
For instance, in January 2023, Atmosic Technologies (U.S.), an innovator in energy harvesting wireless platforms for the Internet of Things (IoT), partnered with Etag Technology Corporation (China), a professional manufacturer of electronic shelf label systems, to bring Atmosic’s ultra-low power wireless solutions to ETAG Tech’s electronic shelf label (ESL) portfolio.
