EUROPE’S AD SPEND RALLIES IN Q3–BUT STILL SHOWS A -3.8% DECLINE YTD

Global advertising spend has continued to climb, gaining 3.2 percent in the third quarter year-over-year (YOY). This quarter’s growth likely reflects Asia Pacific’s expanding powerhouse ad market, as well as a bottoming out of Europe’s contracting ad market. While the North American region saw a slight decline of 1.3 percent during the quarter YOY, the absence of heavy political advertisements surrounding last year’s U.S. election is likely the cause.
