GroupM Consumer Eye launches report on Advertising on TV: Flagging or Flourishing?

TV continues to retain a power that can be leveraged by advertisers.

The past two decades have seen rapid transformations in the media landscape with the number of options available to advertisers increasing significantly. Many of these options offer excellent opportunities for brands to reach audiences with high levels of precision, customisation, and measurability.

While this transformation is beneficial for many advertisers, TV can sometimes be perceived as yesterday’s advertising medium or one that’s waning in effectiveness. However, in GroupM’s Consumer Eye research, this is not the case. TV continues to retain a power that can be leveraged by advertisers.

Additionally, the digital extensions of TV have not only given rise to new ways for people to consume content but also created a myriad of opportunities for brands to engage with audiences through TV.

The charts below show data from the 14 APAC markets included in the research.
