South East Asia Advertising Market Analysis

The South East Asia Advertising Market is expected to witness a CAGR of 15.3% during the forecast period 2022 - 2027. The COVID-19 pandemic may have reduced ad spending in the short term, but it would make companies look into unexplored areas of ads and marketing in the future. Even during the lockdown, many organizations tried to reach their audience using online ads and marketing tools. The post-Covid-19 consumer is indoors and available online, making the paradigm shift in marketing strategy a must for small and big businesses. Moreover, in 2020, the industry witnessed a massive uptake in the utilization of DOOH during the onset of the pandemic, exacerbating the requirement for publishers to improve their digital transformation strategies and look for new and creative approaches to maintain ad spending during uncertain times.

  • With the increasing complexity of online advertising and the premium pricing charged for ad blockers, marketing and advertising companies are looking for alternative solutions that may enable them to display their advertisements or messages. This presents the DOOH market with a lucrative opportunity, which may boost its adoption over the forecast period.
  • Southeast Asia represents some of the most significant growth regions for advertising. Out-of-home advertising (OOH) has weathered the digital revolution better than other legacy media formats. Therefore, it is one of the few traditional media segments to increase advertising revenue consistently.
  • The Southeast Asian region is also faring well considering Digital Out of Home (DOOH) advertising. For instance, the Philippines is expected to see some of the highest digital growth over the next five years, stimulated by the attention of global ad-tech firms, such as Rubicon Project and Dataxu, both of which have made deals with DOOH provider, Aircast, to provide programmatic trading of inventory.
  • Further, Programmatic digital OOH is in the infancy stage in Southeast Asia. Vendors are still trying to figure out the complexity of making their inventory available programmatically. Domestic market regulations are a major factor in the penetration of DOOH in Southeast Asia.
  • For instance, Singapore has very strict regulations for the OOH market in content and location. There is very limited availability of billboards, while advertisers must ensure their content complies with the shared values of Singapore’s society and are not denigrating competitors. Furthermore, in Malaysia, all OOH creative contents must be submitted for pre-approval to authorities to ensure they comply with guidelines.

South East Asia Advertising Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the South East Asia Advertising Market according to our research experts:

Transit Application is Expected to Hold the Highest Market Share

  • The increasing demand for digital content and information relevant to travelers has led to interactive ads through different modes of advertisements, such as Kiosks, billboards, and Signboards, at the platform that accounts for a significant share of growth in transportation media revenues in the region.
  • Due to this, there has been a shift in consumer behavior in terms of customer engagement across all modes of transportation, strategically building their brands in the customer mindset. This is expected to drive potential customers against the traditional media over the coming years.
  • Among various transit environments, airports have proven themselves to be an ideal environment for advertising, particularly for top-tier and luxury brands. Airports are under pressure to figure out ways to generate more revenue. Converting static displays, like posters to digital displays, allow airports to utilize the same space to sell to multiple advertisers instead of just one. That multiplies the amount of revenue exponentially. Additionally, airports can share the cost burden of upgrading to new advertising technologies by bringing in advertising partners.
  • Further, during the pandemic, TRANSIT advertising operator VGI Airports announced that it is expected to complete its RM35 million Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) digital media advertising display system by the mid of 2020. These initiatives and developments further boost the studied market.
  • Moreover, the initial setup cost of the digital screen is much higher than that of print signage, which is likely to pose a challenge for this segment in the market in the future.

Malaysia is Expected to Account for the Largest Market Share

  • As Malaysia started to loosen pandemic restrictions, marketers are increasingly required to be agile and flexible to maximize their performance from OOH and DOOH spending. Malaysia introduced the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) in 2020 to control the spread of COVID-19. The order prohibited various activities, including inter-state travel and mass gatherings. This move severely affected Malaysia’s advertising industry. It resulted in shifting the focus of most brands’ marketing on personal and at-home devices, where people spend more time.
  • However, some companies in the country planned to get more out of this situation. For instance, Lalamove, a Malaysian on-demand delivery platform, assessed that the CMCO period was a good opportunity to start investing in OOH and DOOH media. The company was able to take advantage of cut-price rates on both OOH and DOOH sites.
  • Digital outdoor advertising is undergoing significant transformation across the country, with spending expected to grow over the forecast period. The growth is majorly driven by a dense distribution of digital screens, a developed infrastructure, and connected technologies, which facilitate new opportunities for brands.
  • The Malaysia Advertisers Association recognizes that OOH and DOOH are increasingly popular mediums for advertisers. However, there were a large number of technology providers with various reliable technologies with different measuring currencies, which became a challenge in measurement.
  • Therefore, the Malaysia Advertisers Association made an agreement with the Media Specialists Association (MSA) to form a joint industry committee together with the Outdoor Advertising Association of Malaysia (OAAM) to solve this problem. The formation of the Joint Industry Committee (JIC) and standardizing of a single currency are expected to simplify the planning process by introducing simple measurements that media owners commonly utilize. The JIC is working on the framework to select a single measurement metric that multiple technology providers can offer.
