Moreover, the advancement of technology in outdoor advertisement space and the creativity of marketers present significant growth opportunities for the market.

U.S. Billboard and Outdoor Advertising Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the market. During the pandemic, Out of home advertising (OOH) experienced a setback as a result of lockdowns and a shift in consumer focus toward digital channels. The Out of Home Advertising Association of America (OAAA) reported a significant drop in outdoor advertising revenue, with a 30.5% decrease in the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to the previous year.

Billboard advertising remains a pivotal component of the advertising landscape, with the proliferation of digital billboards and the adoption of programmatic purchasing mechanisms fueling growth within the industry. In an ever-evolving technological landscape, it becomes imperative for the industry to remain flexible and seize novel prospects to maintain its relevance and efficacy. Programmatic digital out-of-home advertising (pDOOH) is experiencing an increasing surge in popularity, driven by the influential factors of data-driven targeting, versatile procurement choices, and the contextual appropriateness of advertising within specific environments. Digital billboards now often incorporate programmatic advertising, allowing advertisers to target specific demographics, adjust campaigns in real-time, and maximize the efficiency of their ad spend.

New rotating digital billboards are becoming popular. In May 2023, Outdoor Network introduced its first rotating digital billboard in the East London locality. This 3x6 rotating display represents a pioneering addition to the regional advertising landscape, prominently positioned along the Old Transkei Road, a high-traffic volume zone. Given its strategic location, this rotator offers an ideal opportunity for advertisers seeking to engage with specific target audiences.

Type Insights

Based on type, the market is segmented into static billboards, digital billboards, transit advertising, street furniture advertising, place-based advertising, and others. The static billboards segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 37.8% in 2022. Even in the era marked by the ubiquity of digital devices, online advertising, and digital billboards, static billboards maintain their significance and occupy a prominent position within out-of-home (OOH) advertising strategies. A primary factor contributing to the enduring relevance of this medium is its capacity to engage audiences effectively, penetrating the digital noise to leave a lasting impression on viewers. According to the Out of Home Advertising Association of America (OAAA) 2022 report, more than half of urban residents have observed an increased occurrence of OOH messaging and signage compared to the period prior to the pandemic.

The digital billboards segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR of 10.1% during the forecast period. The latest trend related to digital billboards is the emergence of three-dimensional (3D) billboards. Over the past year, a diverse array of 3D billboards has become increasingly prominent in various regions across the globe, including Japan, China, Taiwan, South Korea, India, and the United Kingdom. For instance, in March 2022, Nike unveiled a three-dimensional (3D) billboard in the Shinjuku district of Tokyo, Japan, as part of its promotional efforts leading up to Air Max Day, featuring a striking 3D activation that garnered the notice of local residents and social media participants.

Application Insights

Based on application, the market is sub-segmented into highways, railway stations, buildings, automobiles, and others. The highways segment held the largest revenue share of 32.9% in 2022 and is estimated to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Digital billboards are becoming more prevalent on highways. These high-impact displays allow advertisers to change the content in real-time, display dynamic messages, and provide location-based information. A survey conducted by OAAA-Harris Poll in 2021, revealed a resurgence of mobility, with 83% of respondents noting their awareness of billboards during highway travel and 82% during local driving within town. An overwhelming 83% of consumers expressed their attentiveness to Out-of-Home (OOH) advertising while driving.

The buildings segment is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period. Billboard advertising on buildings, also known as building wrap advertising, is a dynamic form of outdoor advertising that utilizes the exteriors of tall structures as advertising space. Some buildings are equipped with digital LED screens that serve as dynamic building wraps. These screens allow for real-time content changes, video advertisements, and even interactive elements, providing advertisers with more flexibility and opportunities for engagement. Building wraps have evolved to include 3D elements and interactive features.

End-use Insights

Based on the end-use, the market is segmented into retail, miscellaneous, local services & amusement, media & advertising, BFSI, government, restaurants, and others. The retail segment held the largest revenue share of 25.0% in 2022. The retail industry is constantly evolving, and outdoor advertising plays a significant role in capturing consumer attention and driving foot traffic to physical stores. Retailers are using AR technology in outdoor ads to allow consumers to virtually try on clothing or accessories or see how furniture or home decor items would look in their own homes. Some retailers are incorporating voice-activated ads into their outdoor campaigns, leveraging voice search and smart assistant technology to provide information, answer questions, or direct shoppers to the nearest store location.

According to the OAAA, in the U.S., the media & advertising industry ranked third in terms of ad spend value through out-of-home advertisement formats during the first quarter of 2022.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific dominated the market with a revenue share of 42.7% in 2022 and is anticipated to dominate the market over the forecast period. The Asia Pacific region's OOH media landscape is evolving beyond traditional ad spots and locations and incorporating a range of advancements from different printing techniques and digital screen technologies to data-informed creative strategies and the inventive use of public spaces and hardware, which contributes significantly to this evolution. OOH advertisers in China are actively exploring avenues to enhance their return on investment (ROI) and the landscape is being reshaped by technological advancements that bring about efficiency gains. The integration of digital screens has emerged as a cost-effective means of delivering timely information through outdoor advertisements.

North America is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR of 9.6% during the forecast period. The billboard advertising industry is poised for increased effectiveness as a preferred advertising channel for brands in the upcoming year. Findings from a survey conducted by OAAA-Harris Poll in 2021 indicate that a substantial segment of the American population has grown fatigued with mobile device advertising. Consequently, 75% of survey respondents show a preference for outdoor environments where they actively engage with and are influenced by billboard advertising. This trend is even more pronounced in larger urban centers, where the impact of mobile device burnout is particularly noticeable. In these areas, over half of consumers acknowledge a heightened awareness of billboard advertising.
