The months from April to June saw the sector's slowest growth since 2002, but figures released for Q3 show a recovery, growing from £223.3m to £ 231.9m.
Outdoor now has 10.4% share of the market, behind TV on 39.7% and national newspapers on 14.6%. The figures refer to display advertising and exclude direct mail and directories.
Alan James, chief executive of the OAA, said: "This is a great figure. Outdoor is clearly moving up a pace and with more exciting communication opportunities coming from digital screens next year we are anticipating real growth in the medium."
