Service providers are witnessing higher engagement with buyers who expect best practices across creative advertising contracts, particularly in regions such as North America and Europe.

Creative Advertising Global Drivers and Constraints

Advertising market research shows that the digital medium is forecasted to witness growth in double digits and likely to contribute to more than half of the global ad sales.


  • Increasing Digital Spend: The increasing importance and penetration of smartphones and social media has encouraged the marketers to increase their ad spend in these channels to attract more consumers and to improve their brand loyalty. By 2020, the share of digital advertising is expected to account for nearly 51 percent of the total advertising.
  • Increasing Penetration into Newer Markets: Marketers are increasing their focus on newer markets in APAC and Africa, which have higher growth expectations.


  • High Margins and Lack of Transparency: Network agencies continue to enjoy high profit margins due to their billing rates, which are skewed towards senior personnel. Therefore, clients face cost pressures since budgets are decreasing but agencies are unwilling to accommodate the reduced budgets.
  • Dominance of Select Network Agencies: The top network agencies have dominated the market through strategic mergers and acquisitions, leading to a situation where the clients have less bargaining power
