He adds that one of the most significant deals on the digital signage market is STRATACACHE's acquisition of Scala in 2016. The deal cemented STRATACACHE's position as a key player with a broad global footprint and total revenues which are now approaching the billion-dollar range.

STRATACACHE has over the years performed numerous acquisitions in the digital signage space and related fields, including Premier Retail Networks (PRN), Vertigo Digital Displays,Real Digital Media, LIFT Network, Walkbase, iDKLIC, X2O Media, Sys-Teams and POPSCREENS (now called Scala China).

Under the terms of the transaction, NEC will transfer majority ownership of NEC Display Solutions to Sharp. "While the consolidation trend contributes to limiting the number of participants in the marketplace, there is also a steady inflow of new players including start-ups eyeing the digital signage industry", concluded Mr. Andersson.
