Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) advertising includes billboards, vehicle advertisements, taxi ads, bus shelters, etc., that use Adtech like geofencing, tracking, retargeting, attribution, personalization, and measurement. It allows the end-users, like retailers, real estate, etc., to reach out to their consumers when they are out of their homes in public places, commuting to work, waiting (e.g., in elevators), and in specific commercial locations. Further, DOOH advertising is also equipped with technology that provides advertisers with enhanced traffic data that allows them to map the number of customers who came across their ads in a given period.

However, with the continued expansion of digital out-of-home service providers such as Arabia, Hivestack, etc., in the region, the price competitiveness in retail, transit, etc., would significantly increase in the forthcoming period. The growing construction for retails like shopping malls in the region has provided additional space for DOOH advertising. The deployment of DOOH screens, such as digital mupis, attracts visitors' attention & creates awareness among the viewers regarding the brands displayed on the screen.
The Digital Out-of-Home industry is significantly escalating in the GCC region, owing to the introduction of digitalized services in the sectors, including retail, hospitality, real estate, and automotive. The DOOH services bought an opportunity to advertise in locations like public spaces, ATMs, restaurants, etc., which was earlier not possible with the use of television or newspaper advertisements.
Furthermore, the rising installation of digital billboards & mupis in public transportation centers such as airports, bus stations, etc., by prominent industry leaders to engage the audience with their products & services contributed to the growth of the GCC Digital Out-of-Home Advertising market during 2022-2027.
