Print Ad Spend Flat Since ’09, But Nat’nl Newspapers and Magazines Up, Nielsen Reports

Posted by on Tuesday November 9, 2010 | Business, Media

According to a report released last month by The Nielsen Company, which owns PDN, global ad spending in the first half of 2010 was up over the same period in 2009. The report did not factor in internet spending.

“The U.S. market, which faced six straight quarters of declines in ad spending, has seen a turnaround in 2010,” the report said.

After a dismal 2009, the automotive sector showed a 27% increase in spending in 2010, and auto insurance companies spent 23% more on advertising. Those gains helped increase total ad spend in the U.S. more than 3% since last year.

Print media spending was up in several categories. Local newspapers were up slightly, but national newspapers showed a nearly 11% increase. National Sunday supplements climbed 22%, and national magazines gained more than 2%.

Outdoor advertising grew 1.5%, the report said.
