Market Dynamics

Product Life Cycle

Smart advertising is in its growth stage, and new methods and technologies are expected to be launched in the coming years. For instance, in July 2019, CIVIQ Smartscapes announced that it will provide smart kiosks for the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority's (MCCA) Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC) in South Boston. It aims at bringing smart technologies to new markets, including stadiums, convention centers, and other public spaces. With increasing expansion activities and the growing popularity of digital advertising technology across masses, the smart advertising market is expected to grow at an exponential rate in the coming years. Currently, the market is in the growth stage and is expected to mature after 5-10 years due to the launch of new alternative advertisement techniques. A large number of market players are projected to enter the market by 2025, thus increasing the competition level. However, at present, the players are competing based on high technological costs involved in the development of the product.

Figure: Product Life Cycle of Smart Advertising — Growth Stage



The smart advertising market is expected to grow at a significant pace over the forecast period on account of the following:

  • Increased adoption of hyper-targeted advertising model (for delivering personalized content to targeted consumer segments)
  • Standardization of digital display networks
  • Shift towards programmatic media buying and Real-Time Bidding (RTB) model

The above-mentioned factors are expected to propel the development of ad networks, ad exchanges, Demand-Side Platform (DSP), and Supply-Side Platform (SSP), to enhance efficiency and enable greater automation in the smart advertising market.

However, stringent government regulations regarding data privacy and protection might hamper the growth of the smart advertising market in the coming years.
