Global Advertising Spend Growth to Slow Next Year

LONDON, Nov 3, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - The latest Consensus Ad Forecast from Warc, the marketing intelligence service, indicates that global advertising spend will rise by 4.5% during 2016 as a whole, before the growth rate slows to 4.2% in 2017.

James McDonald, Senior Research Analyst at Warc

With the exception of newspapers and magazines, all major media channels are expected to record adspend growth this year and next. However, the two largest, TV (+1.1%) and internet (+13.0%) are forecast to see their growth rate ease during 2017. The same is true for mobile, though it is still set to be the fastest-growing ad channel over the period.

Warc's Consensus Ad Forecast is based on a weighted average of adspend predictions at current prices from ad agencies, media monitoring companies, analysts, Warc's own team and other industry bodies.

Current sources include Carat, eMarketer, GroupM, Magna Global, Nikkei Advertising Research Institute (NARI), Pitch-Madison, Pivotal Research Group and ZenithOptimedia.

All 13 markets covered in the report are forecast to see the amount invested in advertising rise both this year and next, though for eight of these the growth rate will be softer in 2017.

India is expected to see the strongest annual rise in adspend this year, up 13.3%, with a similar rate of growth anticipated next year. The world's largest ad market, the US, is expected to post adspend growth of 5.1% this year - buoyed by the presidential election campaigns and the Rio Olympics. US adspend growth is then forecast to cool next year - rising by 2.8% - as the impact of these events is lost.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding the "Brexit" process by which the UK will leave the European Union in 2017, the nation's ad market is forecast to record adspend growth of 5.6% this year and 4.3% next; both above the global respective rates.

All four BRIC markets, India (+13.4%), China (+7.1%), Russia (+6.1%) and Brazil (+2.1%), are expected to post rises in ad expenditure this year and next. France is forecast to record muted growth of +0.8% in 2017, the softest rate of the 13 markets studied.

All media, barring newspapers and magazines, are predicted to record year-on-year growth in 2017, with mobile expected to see the greatest adspend rise, up 34.2%. Total internet (including mobile) growth is expected to be 13.0% next year, while TV, the world's largest ad channel by spend, is forecast to post growth of 1.1%.

James McDonald, Senior Research Analyst at Warc, said: "The latest consensus results present a positive outlook for advertising investment at both a global and local level. All 13 markets studied are expected to record adspend growth in the short term, and this despite their contrasting socio-economic environments."

"We have identified a common trend among more mature markets whereby increasing investment in internet - particularly mobile - ad formats is driving headline growth. Applying consensus trends to Warc's adspend data shows that mobile will grow to be the world's third-largest ad channel by the end of 2016."
