According to the report, India is set to strengthen with improved confidence and business-friendly reforms in 2015. E-commerce will continue their customer acquisition spree. In time, however, customer experience and sustainability will play a bigger role. Telecom, Auto and FMCG will support the momentum.

Among different media, television will see interest because of digitisation. However, hurdles will remain in the form of advertising time restriction pending decision, BARC's viewership measurement and innovation in access tariffs by platform owners. Meanwhile, Digital India initiative by Government will add to internet access population and payment banks will boost e-retail.

Meanwhile, globally, media owner advertising revenues are forecast to grow by +4.8 per cent in 2015 to $536 billion.The report further suggests that events such as the Winter Olympics, FIFA World Cup or the US mid-term elections this year, drove advertising spends forward. The absence of such non-recurring drivers will affect the spends for 2015, in spite of a stronger economic environment.

Moreover, Magna Global has forecasted global digital revenues to reach 30 per cent market share globally in 2015 (+15.1 per cent to $163).
