Factors causing the large price gap between outdoor LED display panels

At present, ultra-high-definition and ultra-realistic display large LED screens can be seen in many urban business districts, internet celebrity landmarks, transportation hubs, and cultural venues.

This includes indoor small spacing LED wall and outdoor LED display panels.

As a mainstream product for commercial display, LED wall display is increasingly widely used.

So, what is the price of LED screen wall? How much does it cost per square meter? Let’s take a look together.

LED display wall types and LED screen prices

First of all, there are many types of LED wall displays, including single-color displays, dual-color displays, and full-color displays.

single-color display, dual-color display

Among them, the price of single-color display is the lowest, generally between 100-300 US dollars per square meter.


The second is the dual-color display screen, which is slightly more expensive than the single-color display, generally between US$300-500 per square meter.


Single-color and dual-color ones are generally used to display text.

The display requirements are not high and the dot pitch is slightly larger, so the price is relatively not very expensive.

full-color display screens

Compared with the first two types, the price of full-color display screens is slightly higher, and there are more types. The prices range from 400 to tens of thousands of dollars per square meter.

Mainly look at the dot pitch, resolution, brightness, module patching process and waterproof performance.

LED screens with a pixel pitch below 2.5mm are called small-pitch LED screens, and they are currently the most commonly used indoor LED displays.

Among them, 1.25mm, 1.5mm, 1.8mm, and 2.0mm dot pitch are more cost-effective, and the price is generally between 700-1500/square meter.

In addition, the above three types of LED wall displays are divided into indoor and outdoor.

Because outdoor wall screens require higher display brightness and waterproof performance, they are more expensive, generally ranging from 100 to 500 more than indoor ones.

There are also some derivative products of LED wall display, such as LED sphere display, LED transparent screen  etc..

These are high-end displays and more expensive. The price can be calculated according to specific needs.

Outdoor LED display panels:

The quotation for outdoor LED display panels must be based on the product model. Currently, the commonly used models of outdoor LED billboard are P2, P3, P4, P5, P6, P8, and P10.

In addition, P6, P8, and P10 are rarely used, while P4 and P5 are the mainstream hot models on the market.

The price gap of outdoor LED display panels will be affected by the following factors, as follows:

1. System accessories: sending card, receiving card, adapter card;

2. Playback system: control computer, multimedia card or graphics card, and playback software;

3. Editing system: editing computer, video compression card, editing software;

4. Monitoring system: sensor + monitoring software;

5. Protection system: cooling system, power distribution system, lightning protection system;

6. Video input equipment: DVD/VCD player, video recorder, closed-circuit television;

7. Image and text input: scanner, digital camera. Except for the system accessories and playback system, the above accessories and equipment are all optional equipment.

The impact of project site construction factors on the quotation of outdoor LED billboard:

It is affected by factors such as the installation location, installation method, screen size, frame structure material selection and other factors.

There will definitely be a big difference in outdoor LED display panels.

Especially when making outdoor LED billboard, the project prices vary greatly due to the construction environment.

Other factors affect the quotation of outdoor LED display panels:

Some factors such as payment method, tax rate, transportation method, LED display brand, and project site complexity all determine the quotation of outdoor LED display screens.

At present, the quotations of each brand and manufacturer of outdoor LED displays will be different, and of course the quality and performance will also be different.

The production materials used are different and the quality is different, which determines the service life and display effect.

In the long run, cheap products are generally not cost-effective, so the quote cost is not the only factor when purchasing outdoor LED displays.

You should consider choosing the one that best suits you based on your own needs such as comprehensive usage, usage functions, and scene environment.
