Report Description

India outdoor advertising market is anticipated to grow at an impressive rate during the forecast period on account of growing spending on display advertisements and growing utilization of indoor advertising for publicity in end use industries. The advertising industry is one of the most important segments of media and entertainment industry. Among its types, outdoor advertising has been one of the fastest-growing segments in the advertising space of India. It represents a high potential opportunity for outdoor media advertisers as brand owners tend to spend a great fortune over advertising and brand promotion as this method ensures a far greater consumer reach. Also, the Indian government provides remarkable support to the advertising industry. The improving market sentiments, supportive policies by Reserve Bank of India and the opening of newly licensed banks in India is opening doors to various opportunities for advertising expenditure companies in the financial sector.

Rapid development of infrastructure, including upcoming airports, smart city projects, malls, metros, bus shelters, public conveniences, coffee shops, along with increased advertising opportunities in tier-II and tier-III cities are major factors boosting outdoor advertising market in India. During events like Kumbh, IPL & elections, the demand for outdoor media advertising increases as the organisers seek to draw attention of people towards the event. Additionally, any event, which is not a part of a yearly predictability and plan, is more benefiting. One such example are general elections which come once in five years.

Along with growth factors, outdoor advertising market also faces challenges such as lack of strong monitoring systems, the unorganized nature of the media, a lack of strong research to prove the efficacy of outdoor advertising, a lack of transparency and a huge fragmentation in the market.
