In-car listening boosts DAB+ take-up

The continued global growth of DAB+ is highlighted in the latest infographic from WorldDAB, the well-established DAB+ auto market alongside emerging digital radio territories leading the way.

The updated graphic, which shows more than 125 million DAB+ devices sold to date, and almost all new cars across Europe coming with DAB as standard, was published to coincide with the annual IBC Show in Amsterdam.

WorldDAB – the global industry forum for DAB digital radio – organised an expert conference session for IBC attendees from around the world. Opening the event, Project Director Bernie O’Neill told the audience: “In just the last two months we’ve seen DAB+ successfully on-air in Ghana, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, and a renewed commitment to digital radio development from Thailand. This builds on the ongoing DAB+ rollout across Europe – with significant market expansion well underway in France and Germany, alongside our already established core markets. This continued growth demonstrates that DAB+ provides a firm foundation for radio’s digital future around the world.”

Cumulative DAB+ receiver sales in the UK have broken the 50 million barrier.
