After a brief downturn during the pandemic, Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) advertising is making a robust comeback. People are now craving real, physical interactions, but they expect these to blend with digital experiences seamlessly – and that's where DOOH thrives.

Already celebrated for its hyper-targeting capabilities, seamless integration with other digital platforms, and measurable impact, DOOH is now taking it to another level with technological advancements like virtual reality, augmented reality, and AI. 

As a result, advertisers are getting new opportunities to reach and engage audiences and improve ROI. 

So, how does DOOH look in numbers, and should it be your go-to advertising type in 2024? We’ve gathered compelling statistics to give you a better view – let’s dive in.

DOOH ranks among the top five channels consumers prefer in 2023, particularly because it involves in-person interaction. Despite this, many marketers still focus on digital channels.

DOOH is also recognized as one of the top three channels capturing consumer attention most. Still, marketers often overlook DOOH and favor influencer content instead.

Some benefits in numbers:

  • Exposure to premium DOOH, which typically features large, high-quality screens in busy areas, can increase brand trust by 13% compared to brands that have no such exposure.
  • Contextually relevant content on DOOH screens, triggered by factors like time, weather, or live updates, boosts ad effectiveness by an average of 17%.
  • 55% of Gen Z respondents are drawn to billboards displaying dynamic content. Advertisers heavily target this demographic through social media, even though they respond well to the innovative use of DOOH. This suggests DOOH can be a go-to strategy for engaging this often difficult-to-reach group.

Full Motion DOOH Stats

Integrating full motion DOOH (FMDOOH) with social media campaigns can enhance brand funnel metrics by an average of 23%, improving awareness, emotional response, top message takeout, consideration, purchase intent, and consumer action. It particularly works at the top end and bottom end of the funnel (awareness and action).

Notably, combining FMDOOH and social media can lead to a 48% increase in consumer action. This synergy highlights how FMDOOH complements social strategies – social creates interest and desire, while FMDOOH pushes core messaging and provokes emotion. 

Further insights underscore the impact of full motion DOOH compared to static DOOH:

  • Full motion DOOH content holds viewers' attention 60% longer than static ads.
  • Using 3D DOOH content increases consumer attention by 15% compared to 2D.

Retail and E-Commerce 

Currently, 85% of all retail sales in the United States still occur in physical stores, where DOOH plays a prominent role. Despite the rise of online shopping, physical stores are opening faster than they’re closing. 

Plus, nearly half of the consumers prefer shopping in physical stores – underscoring the ongoing relevance and potential of in-store DOOH advertising.

In fact, in-store retail media is capturing a larger share of the DOOH landscape, fueled by an expanding digital ad inventory located directly on store shelves, end caps, cooler doors, and checkout aisles. 

This placement offers advertisers a unique chance to sway consumer decisions at the critical moments just before they finalize purchases.

As we look to the future, it’s clear that DOOH and programmatic solutions are evolving rapidly. As consumers increasingly respond to DOOH campaigns, the gap between traditional advertising perceptions and DOOH’s dynamic capabilities widens.

For advertisers, this represents a prime opportunity to use the power of DOOH to engage audiences at crucial decision-making moments. 

Embracing DOOH now means staying ahead in an advertising world that values immediacy, relevance, and impact.
