Worldwide TV Ad Spend will Reach $236 Billion in 2020

The transition to digital marketing is still a huge challenge for many legacy marketers, so when they gain access to additional budget they choose to spend it on media that's within their comfort-zone. For those with a traditional media buyer mind-set, that often translates into spending more on television advertising.

Global TV advertising expenditure will reach $236 billion in 2020, up by 38 percent ($64 billion) from 2013 and up by 54 percent ($82 billion) on 2010, according to the latest market study by Digital TV Research.

Regardless of the relatively poor ROI performance, TV ad spend is expected to grow by 4.0 percent in 2014 for the 55 countries covered in the study -- and that's better than the 2.2 percent recorded in 2013.

"Positives for TV advertising in 2014 include World Cup soccer in Brazil and economic improvement in much of Europe. However, not all countries have fully recovered economically. Devaluation is a factor in some markets, such as Venezuela. In addition, internal conflicts in countries such as Israel, Thailand and the Ukraine have damaged the advertising industry," said Simon Murray, principal analyst at Digital TV Research.

TV advertising expenditure will double in Latin America and the Middle East & Africa between 2010 and 2020. Excluding deflation-hit Japan, net TV advertising in Asia Pacific is forecast to more than double between 2010 and 2020.

However, TV advertising spend in Western Europe will only be 26 percent higher in 2020 than in 2010. TV advertising in Western Europe fell in both 2012 and 2013, with 2.7 percent growth expected in 2014.

The 2010 total will not be bettered until 2015. Excluding the booming Russian market, TV advertising in Eastern Europe will fall in 2012, 2013 and 2014. The 2011 total will only be surpassed in 2018.

From the $64.4 billion TV ad spend to be added between 2013 and 2020, $22.6 billion (35 percent) will come from the U.S. market, followed by an extra $7.9 billion from China, $3.7 billion from Brazil and $3.1 billion from Japan.

The U.S. will remain the global TV advertising market leader by some way. China overtook Japan to take second place in 2013. TV ad spend will more than double in Brazil between 2010 and 2020, with Russia also nearly doubling. However, Italy, hit even harder by the recession, has dropped dramatically and will not recover to the 2010 total by 2020.

According to the DTV Research assessment, multi-channel TV advertising expenditure will nearly double to $67.5 billion between 2010 and 2020. The U.S. market will contribute $35.2 billion to the 2020 total, followed someway behind by the Pan-Arab channels with $5.5 billion.

Moreover, free-to-air TV advertising expenditure will increase by 34 percent between 2010 and 2020 to $168 billion.

Linux Phone Standards Forum

A new Linux Phone Standards Forum (LiPS) has been founded to promote mass market adoption of Linux telephony terminals through standardization, interoperability testing and market education. The founding members include Cellon, France Telecom, FTM Labs, Huawei, Jaluna, Mizi, Open Plug and PalmSource. LiPS will support device manufacturers and operators in bringing to market Linux-based devices at lower cost (due to lower deployment costs through standardization), while facilitating the programming and development process for software and silicon vendors. The Forum said plans to work with other organizations such as the OMTP and OMA to identify requirements of distinct device categories including smartphones, feature phones, fixed-line, or converged devices. For each of these categories, or profiles, LiPS will define standard API�s that support relevant applications and services as well as a certification process for technology providers.

Cloud Services Gain New Momentum in Europe

Across European nations, more CIOs and CTOs are investing in public cloud services that become the essential foundation for the design and delivery of innovative digital transformation projects. Public cloud computing spending in Europe will reach $113 billion in 2022 and will double to $239 billion by 2026, growing at a 22 percent 5-year CAGR, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC).

Strategic Digital Transformation Spending Trends

Looking ahead, many Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) continue to selectively invest in new strategic digital transformation projects that enable a significant competitive advantage. Some additional investments may go towards improving existing IT infrastructure and operations.  Worldwide IT spending is now projected to total $4.5 trillion in 2022 -- that's an increase of 3 percent from 2021, according to the latest updated estimate by Gartner. For now, most CIOs will be relieved that their budget is safe from major cuts. While IT spending is expected to grow in 2022, it will be at a slower pace than in 2021 -- partly due to a 5 percent cutback on spending for personal computers, media tablets, and printers. Digital Transformation Market Development "Central banks around the world are focusing on fighting inflation, with overall inflation rates expected to be reduced through the end of 2023.
