The digital Signage Business Climate Index France has decreased significantly by 20,76 base points from 52,65 base points to 31,89 base points. The decline of the index has been fairly strong. However, almost 60% of the market participants are still satisfied with their current situation and business in general is good. But most market participants are concerned by an in average very long tender process and increasingly fierce competition in the French IT and Digital Signage market.

At the same time the optimism towards the near future is consentingly good. Now well over 55% of all polled companies expect a more favourable situation for their products and services in the Digital Signage and Digital out of Home market within the next six months.
