Marketing Budgets by Medium
In June, the Global Marketing Index showed that the allocation of marketing budgets assigned to TV continued falling with an index value of 46.8, below the 50.0 ‘no change’ level. This was the seventh successive month that the global TV index indicated a fall in TV’s share of marketing budgets.

TV expenditure also declined in the Asia-Pacific region with an index recorded of 45.0.

The decline in expenditure on TV, was mirrored by falls in the marketing budgets allocated to OOH, Radio and Press. The global Index values for Radio and Out-of-Home (OOH) in June showed falling budget spend on these media across the globe with values of 41.2 and 48.5 respectively. Radio spending declined across all regions, but OOH showed a meagre increase in spending in Europe with an index value recorded of 50.6 and in the Asia-Pacific region with an index of 50.5.
