GroupM revises industry growth estimates down to 8.5%; print to be hit hardest

The slowdown in the economy, along with depreciation of the Rupee is beginning to impact the advertising industry. As per GroupM’s revised forecast of ad spends for H2, Adex has come down to 4.7 per cent from the earlier estimate of 7.3 per cent. The H2 slowdown brings down full year growth from 9.9 per cent to 8.5 per cent.

As per the revised estimates, print will see the lowest growth in ad spends in H2 at 0.7 per cent from the earlier 4.8 per cent.
