Out-of-home ad spending rose 7.7% during the second quarter of 2019, according to an analysis of data from Kantar Media released Wednesday by the out-of-home Advertising Association of America (OAAA).
The second quarter signals an acceleration of growth for the U.S. out-of-home ad industry, which posted a first half gain of 7.0%, according to the OAAA analysis.
“The strong quarterly growth occurred across all four major OOH channels: billboards, street furniture, transit, and place-based," states OAAA President and CEO Nancy Fletcher. "Digital OOH posted the highest increases across all formats, representing 31 percent of total OOH revenue in the second quarter.”
Ranked in order of OOH spending, the top 10 advertisers in the second quarter were McDonald’s, Geico, Apple, State Farm, Chevrolet, Amazon, Facebook, Anheuser-Busch, AT&T, and HBO.
