Adspend Grows in APAC


Advertising expenditure (adspend) in the APAC region grew 5.8% in the first quarter of 2013 compared with the same quarter in 2012. This compared with global growth of only 1.9% but was second to Latin America with an outstanding 11.9% growth. Adspend in Europe declined 4.4% and North America was flat.


The data comes from Nielsen’s quarterly Global AdView Pulse report. Nielsen reports, “The best performers in the region were China, Indonesia and Philippines, which all saw roughly 20 percent growth. Japan was the only country where ad spend decreased (down 1.1%).”

As adpsend is a driver of economic growth the future is positive for the APAC region.
