RK Swamy Media Group unveils Media Market Pocketbook 2017

The R K Swamy Media Group has unveiled its Media Market Pocketbook 2017. The pocketbook is a handy compilation of updated, comprehensive and relevant information on India’s media landscape. The compact design and precise content makes it a ready reckoner for the media, marketing and advertising community.  

Sandeep Sharma, President, R K Swamy Media Group said, “For over a decade now, our in-house domain experts have been analyzing relevant data and extrapolating it to enable quick decisions by brand leads.

  • OOH: Technology is the trend in this medium as well. Digital Outdoor Architecture, LED screens, mobile interactivity are the new formats going forward. Airport advertising has seen a huge increase, but at the same time, audience fragmentation has increased due to larger airports and separate terminal access points increasing the cost to reach the same number of people.
  • Cinema: Despite huge changes in Cinema with the proliferation of multiplexes, it is not able to grow beyond the industry growth rate; barely able to hold its share of 1 per cent for the last five years. This medium has the potential to garner 2-3 per cent share in the overall advertising pie; needs a little bit of scientific approach, and a measurement system
