Integrated Marketing Research
Slow Painful Death Of TV As Top Ad Medium
Television currently is #1 as an advertising medium, claiming a 38% share of total adspend. However, Zenith forecasts that by 2018 the internet will overtake TV to become the largest single advertising medium. One of the reasons for TV’s loss of share is the “rapid growth” of paid search, which, together with classified, is essentially a direct response channel, while TV is the “pre-eminent brand awareness channel” and Zenith expects it to remain so “for many years to come”. Mobile advertising is responsible for almost “all of the growth” in global adspend.
