With millions of tourists visiting the country each year, outdoor advertising provides a valuable platform for reaching both local and international audiences. In conclusion, the Traditional Out-of-Home Advertising market in Malaysia is experiencing growth due to customer preferences for outdoor advertising, the integration of digital and traditional formats, the multicultural society, and the underlying macroeconomic factors.

Data coverage:

Data encompasses enterprises (B2B). Figures are based on traditional out-of-home advertising spending and exclude agency commissions, rebates, production costs, and taxes. The market covers offline out-of-home advertisements such as billboards, street furniture, transit and transport displays, and place-based media.

Modeling approach:

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., Consumer Insights Global 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.

Additional notes:

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.
