Growing Business Spending on Advertising across the World

Advertising plays an essential role in driving business growth. It amplifies the business effort and helps an organization reach the right audience and convert potential customers into paying customers.

To stay ahead in the competition and retain the existing consumer base, organizations significantly invest in advertising services, which is expected to.

  • For instance, the average spending of small businesses that use Google Ads as part of their online advertising strategy is between US$ 9,000 and US$ 10,000 per month.

Moreover, direct advertising presented in children's eyes and ears has dramatically increased as a result of the expansion of advertising channels targeting kids and the commercialization of kids' media use.

  • As per the American Psychological Association, advertisers are thought to spend more than US$ 12 billion annually to target the young market, and kids watch more than 40,000 commercials annually.

These numbers show a sharp rise above those from the 1970s. As such, increasing business spending on advertising is driving market growth.

  • Short Term (2022 to 2025): Post-COVID, consumers started spending more time on smartphones & social media platforms, which created a lucrative opportunity for online advertising services agencies.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): The United States and Asia Pacific are expected to witness a high number of start-ups and foreign company establishments. To expand, companies may seek the adoption of advertising services to gain a competitive advantage in the market.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): Growing digitalization is expected to leverage the demand for online advertising services more than physical ad services. Advertising will become a core activity for every small & medium organization to deal with intense competitive rivalry in the market.

From 2017 to 2021, the global advertising agency services market registered a CAGR of 6.7%, as per a new study by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider. Between 2022 and 2032, the market is projected to exhibit growth at 7.2% CAGR.

Why is Demand for Advertising Service Platforms Increasing?

“Growing Popularity of Social Media Advertising”

The growing popularity of social media advertising is one of the major factors that will push market growth in the forthcoming period. Social media has changed from its original purpose of promoting social interaction and content sharing to now offering interactive avenues for both consumers and corporations. In addition to changing how Internet users communicate with one another, platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter have also revolutionized the way marketing and advertising communications reach highly relevant target audiences.

Social media's influence on consumer behavior extends from highlighting the importance of word-of-mouth recommendations to fostering stronger customer-business ties. Thus, the growing popularity of social media advertisements across the world is propelling market growth.

“Increasing Trend of Digital Advertising Worldwide”

As the Internet era has progressed, increased on-demand services from digital advertising firms have caused a shift in consumer focus away from traditional forms of media and toward more digital ones. Today, despite visiting a physical store, consumers are looking for products on online platforms, reading consumer reviews, and accessing the prices of products online. Through this, advertising agencies promote the customer’s business, products, and services to generate high brand awareness, sales, and more.

What Do Advertising Services Providers Need to Keep in Mind?

“Presence of Strict Regulations Related to Advertising”

The presence of strict regulations on advertising that distorts the market by propagating false or deceitful claims is a major factor hampering market growth. Promises can persuade consumers to acquire products or services that they otherwise would not have opted to buy if they had not been misled by deceptive advertising. If this occurs, intervention by governments may be necessary to restore the market's integrity.

To stop false and deceptive advertising, it may take a variety of measures, such as targeted legal action and the creation of legislation to address practices that mislead consumers about the tangible qualities of products and services on the market.

For instance, The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is established in the United States to oversee policies intended to safeguard consumers against unfair or misleading acts. The FTC seeks to prevent advertisers from making false, erroneous, or otherwise misleading advertising claims. The FTC can issue orders, enforceable through the courts, forcing marketers to stop their misleading or deceptive advertising when illegal statements are discovered.

“Growing Consumer Awareness about Digital Advertising”

While online advertisements used to be effective at getting users to click, over time, people developed greater resistance to their allure. Many Internet users deliberately block advertisements using browser extensions. Many others just decide to disregard them. Some ad formats are completely unpopular because they lead to distractions or make it difficult for users to access the required content fast. For example, some viewers will simply monitor the countdown clock while waiting to bypass the video ad and go straight to their film.

Moreover, the possibility of tracking down target customers is expected to be low when customers use specific search engines or social networks, which will hamper the online advertising process.
