GroupM revises ad spend growth to 12.5% from earlier 11.6%

GroupM has revised their annual estimated advertising expenditure (AdEx) for 2014 to 12.5 per cent from 11.6 per cent released earlier this year. The AdEx revision is part of the global report called the ‘This Year, Next Year (TYNY) 2014’. GroupM globally also released their revised estimates, India, Brazil and Russia remain among the faster-growing ad markets.

Medium wise, television spending is set to grow to 14.8 per cent as against the previously predicted 12 per cent. Digital media continues to show the maximum growth with 35 per cent. In the print medium, regional publications and local advertisers are projected to lead the growth for dailies. Government spending and retail will continue to increase spending in print.

Speaking about the industry sectors contributing to the revised growth, CVL Srinivas, CEO, GroupM South Asia said, “After a cautious start to the year, the overall sentiment in the country is positive following the general elections and a new stable government. One of the sectors that is adding to the growth story in India is retail. Specifically e-commerce players that are investing heavily in above the line advertising along with digital media. Industries like FMCG, Auto, telecom and BFSI are expected to increase spends given competitive pressures and clear policies.”

‘This Year, Next Year’ is part of GroupM’s media and marketing forecasting series drawn from data supplied by holding company WPP’s worldwide resources in advertising, public relations, market research, and specialist communications. The TYNY report is a comprehensive understanding of the estimated media spends by advertisers in the current year. It also highlights some of the industry sectors that will have a major effect on advertising spends across media.
