Nielsen Global AdView Pulse: Spotlight on China July 2011

7 July 2011 14 h 10 min 5 comments

According to the new Nielsen Global AdView Pulse report, global advertising rose 8.8 percent year-on-year in Q1 to total USD 118 billion based on published rate cards, as advertisers spent more on television and continued to invest in booming consumer Asian and Latin American markets.

Each quarter, CSN and Nielsen will publish exclusive data and trends figures about the greater China advertising market covering 5 territories (mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia).  

Territory trends

Advertising in the world’s largest market, USA, rose 5.9 percent to reach nearly USD 27 billion in Q1 with stable increases for TV, radio and magazines. Emerging regions of Asia-Pacific (+12.4%) and Latin America (+11%) drove global ad growth in Q1. Argentina (+37%) and South Africa (+34.8%) posted the highest year-on-year gains, while other emerging markets of China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Saudi Arabia had double-digit gains in Q1.

The ad spending growth for our 5 Chinese territories was strong during first quarter 2011 :

. HK

. Taiwan

China’s share of spend in the Asia Pacific region was 51.3% in Q1 2011, compared with 48% in Q1 2010.

Media trends

According to the new Nielsen Global AdView Pulse report, television advertising rose 11.9 percent year-on-year and increased its share among other traditional media (radio, magazines, and newspapers) from 63.5 percent to 65.3 percent in both developed and many emerging economies. “With USD 6.50 of every ten dollars being spent on television, it’s clear that TV remains the most important and cost effective advertising medium for companies looking to reach new consumers, especially in booming emerging markets,” said Randall Beard, Global Head of Advertiser Solutions for Nielsen. “In fact, according to two Nielsen reports released last month, women globally said they preferred to find out information on new products and services via television more than any other medium, and the Q1 Nielsen Cross-Platform Report showed that Americans are watching more TV than ever before.”

We can see the same trend in Chinese territories. TV spending growth was heavy in Malaysia (28,1%), China (21,8%) and HK (16,5%) and lower in Taiwan (7,6%) and Singapore (3,8%).

In most of Chinese territories, TV still holds major share of ad pie, especially in Mainland China (82,3%), Malaysia (49,3%) and HK (41,8%). Its not the case in Taiwan (9,1%) and Singapore (35,2%), where newspapers are stronger in attracting advertisers.

    (China Daily, 23 Aug, 2013) In the past year, Chinese films have galloped ahead like a dark horse, beating Hollywood imports. It is hardly surprising that most of these domestic hits are comedies. Comedy is mostly local. When Hollywood sent scouts to recover the secret formula, many of them reported that these Chinese movies were not particularly funny. Of course not. When you translate every line into English, you have lost much of the fun, leaving only a few sight [...]
