Market Overview

The South East Asia Digital Out-of-Home (DooH) market is expected to register a CAGR of 17.5 % over the forecast period (2022 - 2027). An innovative type of advertising known as "digital OOH" uses digital media to promote products outside the home. Digital signage, commonly referred to as DOOH, has mostly supplanted conventional types of marketing and advertising. This method enables advertisers and neighborhood businesses to interact with their clients and audiences in real-time to get the most out of the marketing messages displayed on DOOH. Advertisers can connect with their target markets in natural settings. Everything from digital billboards to screens in elevators and jukeboxes is included in the DOOH industry.

  • Increased use of the internet, fast digitalization, and a greater emphasis on targeted marketing are some of the major reasons supporting market growth in the region. This may also be attributed to rising store space combined with the increased outside time individuals spend. The market is also driven by the growing usage of point of sale (POS) campaigns by companies or marketers to advertise limited or special edition discounted products and foster impulse purchases. In addition, vehicle or transit advertising is rapidly gaining popularity as a mobile marketing strategy with printed graphics to take advantage of high traffic areas and build brand awareness.
  • According to International Telecommunication Union, As of June 2021, Singapore had an internet penetration rate of 87.7 %, followed by Malaysia with 89 %, and Brunei had the highest rate with 104.5 % in Southeast Asia. Timor-Leste, in contrast, only had a 38.3 % internet penetration rate.
  • According to the Advertising Association of Thailand, In 2021, advertising expenditure on Digital is 9.11%, followed by outdoor advertising medium with 6.61% and transit expenditure of 4.03%. Additionally, digital out-of-home advertising allows users to reach potential customers by fusing traditional media strategies with contemporary ones. Further, it is projected that the growing need for digital signage solutions across the automotive, retail, telecom, and healthcare sectors would present sizable potential prospects for developing the digital out-of-home market.
  • Since the spring of 2020, the digital signage sector has had to make some tough choices and develop its ability to adapt to survive. When many consumers were staying at home, the digital out-of-home (DOOH) industry, in particular, was compelled to change and develop new strategies for reaching consumers. In 2021, the digital signage industry made a strong comeback. As more people ventured out into the world after months of seclusion, industry participants noticed that they were more inclined to see DOOH, especially if the promotions were unique and eye-catching. IP cameras and sensors can be integrated with digital signage to ensure that the current social distancing rules are followed.
  • The DOOH business is experimenting with several technologies to increase audience measurement and engagement. These innovations frequently gather various information about users, depending on the system. Some technologies can identify individual consumers, track them as they move from location to location, and keep precise details on their preferences and actions. Among these, one of the technology is Facial Recognition. While not yet configured to identify individuals, some systems can calculate a passerby's age, gender, and race and determine how long an individual watches the display. The advertisement on the screen can then change to match the consumer's profile. Other systems note only gender; still, others merely count the number of faces on the screen (gaze-tracking).

  • There are various sizes of billboards, such as six-sheet billboards, 16 sheet billboards, 32 sheet billboards, 48 sheet billboards, and 96 sheet billboards. With compact dimensions of 1800mm x 1200mm, six-sheet billboards are usually seen at railway stations, bus stops, and shopping centers and are significantly effective at connecting brands to a young and professional audience. 16-sheet billboards are used in highly urbanized areas generally elevated above the ground near roadsides. The size and cost of these billboards make them suitable for targeting consumers in busy areas and optimizing conversion rates, with busy shoppers and commuters representing the key and most accessible segments.
  • 32-sheet billboards share similarities with 16-sheet advertisements, measuring an estimated 3048 mm tall. Companies use 32-sheet billboards to direct passing customers to a nearby storefront while leveraging the additional width to enlarge image dimensions, enhance clarity, or include secondary messaging.
