OVAB Europe DBCI JanFeb 2014

The DBCI or OVAB Europe Digital Signage Business Climate Index is a widely observed early indicator for economic development in the Digital Signage and Digital-out-of-Home industry of the EMEA market region. The DBCI is published bi-monthly. It is based on the responses of the high level management from all relevant companies in the Digital Signage value chain.

The aim of the index is to give the market participants and analysts an early indicator for upcoming demand for digital signage solutuons and DooH services. Every issue includes  additional questions covering current topics and trends. The DBCI brings transparency in a fast growing and dynamic market.

The index is managed by invidis consulting GmbH Munich for OVAB Europe. Participation in the poll is by invitation only and the participants are asked two basic questions about their current business situation and their expectations for the upcoming six months. For every question there are three possible answers defining if the business situation is “good”, “neutral” or “poor” respectively if the expectations are for a “more favourable”, unchanged” or “more unfavourable” business situation within the next six months. The results for good and poor are then balanced and a geometrical mean is calculated. This is the basic index value. It can vary between -100 for a very poor business situation and +100 for a very good business situation. The last year saw the DBCI scoring a consistent rating higher than +50, meaning that a very positive business sentiment is currently existing among the market participants in the Digital Signage industry.

Companies interested in joining the bi-monthly DBCI poll can register for the next survey with Daniel Russell (daniel.russell@invidis.com).
