Out-of-Home (OOH) Advertising refers to any advertising in public areas. OOH Advertising includes all ad spending on large formats (e.g., billboards), street furniture (e.g., bus shelters), transit and transportation (e.g., bus and commuter rail displays), and place-based media (e.g., traditional ambient media at the point of sale). Out-of-Home Advertising is divided into two markets: Traditional OOH Advertising and Digital OOH Advertising.
The Traditional Out-of-Home Advertising market refers to all revenues from advertising in traditional (physical) out-of-home media. The content in this market only refers to non-digital revenues.
Digital Out-of-Home Advertising refers to all revenues generated from internet-connected out-of-home advertisements. The content in this market only refers to digital revenues.

Market size is determined by a combined top-down and bottom-up approach. We use annual financial reports of the market-leading companies and industry associations, third-party reports, and survey results from our primary research (e.g., Statista Global Consumer Survey) to analyze the markets. To estimate the market size for each country individually, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific industry associations, such as GDP, population, urban population, and internet infrastructure.
We use a variety of forecasting techniques, depending on the behavior of the market. For instance, the S-curve function is well suited to forecast digital products due to the non-linear growth of technology adoption, whereas exponential trend smoothing (ETS) is more suited for projecting steady growth in traditional advertising markets.
Data is modeled using current exchange rates. The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war are considered at a country-specific level. The market is updated twice per year in case market dynamics change.
