According to a new report by Nielsen, display advertising grew by 26.3 percent in Q1 2013. Display Internet ad growth was especially high in the Asia-Pacific (33.2 percent) and Latin America (48.2 percent). Europe saw a growth of 10.4 percent.
According to Nielsen’s quarterly Global AdView Pulse report, television is still the top media type for advertising investments and the best way to communicate with customers, with 59 percent media share and 3.5 percent global growth.
Print advertising continues to decline slowly, with spending in magazines and newspapers decreasing in the first quarter at -2.8 percent and -4.7 percent, respectively. But the two media types combined have almost 30 percent media share.
