DOOH MARKET DRIVERS
Price erosion of Digital Screens
Growth of the DOOH industry and its players is partially limited by the ability to provide and the availability of suitable locations for digital signage displays. Global shipments and revenue of digital signage displays grew at a CAGR of about 11.9% and 10.8% respectively from 2005 to 2010. Consequently, average price of a digital screen fell 5.6% from 2007 to 2009. By 2014, the average price of a digital screen is expected to fall to by another 16.6%. This trend favours the growth of DOOH media industry as media equipment becomes more affordable and allows industry players to install more digital screens at more locations.
Increasing acceptance of audio visual transit advertising
Traditional TV advertising has proven that screen advertising is effective at audience captive. This same concept is applied in transit vehicles by DOOH transit media players. DOOH transit media players bring the TV out from home into the transit vehicles, so that viewers can watch programs and advertisements on these digital screens while travelling. Furthermore, creative and interesting contents which are shown not only attracts and retains the attention of the audience but would also increase the acceptance of DOOH advertising.
GTP and 10th Malaysia Plan to improve public transportation
