OOH Industry: Challenges and prospect

The future prospects for OOH advertising industry are very optimistic.”

The key drivers for the exponential growth of the OOH (Out-of-Home) advertising are changing lifestyle and demographic trends, changing macro-dynamic variables, augmenting consumer awareness, increased spending by advertisers on billboards in Miami and billboard advertising in Los Angeles, and rising population who spend majority time out of their home.

Digital OOH advertising has progressed from being a passive media outlet to something that is modern, sophisticated, and helps to drive mobile searches. As mobile technologies are becoming more advanced, they will continue to contribute to the rapid development of OOH technology. OOH advertising has also changed the market dynamics of the advertising industry, and is rapidly replacing the reliance on traditional media outlets such as TV and print.

Another important realization is that the innovation in the recent technologies such as augmented reality, dynamic content trigger, facial recognition – all of these will enhance the creative storytelling power of OOH.
