New Delhi, India, April 19, 2013 --( IMARC Group, one of the world’s leading research and advisory firms, finds that the total market for transit advertising in India is expected to grow at a CAGR of 22% during 2013-2016.

Taking into consideration the amount of time a person spends on travelling everyday in course of his job, business, profession, socializing or entertainment, this medium of advertising is full of growth potential. The central as well as many state governments are planning to either introduce metro rail service or to expand existing networks in various cities in the coming years and these measures are expected to give a big boost to transit advertising.
