US online adspend: new records set as net breaks $5bn a quarter


The latest numbers for the US from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and the IAB confirm that the world's largest online ad market is still enjoying the largest annual growth in real terms. Spend surged ahead by 25.4%, crossing the $5bn (£2.46bn) mark in a single quarter.
US Internet advertising revenues for the first six months of 2007 were nearly $10bn (£4.92), setting yet another new record and were almost 27% up on the first half of 2006. Spend reached nearly $5.1bn (£2.50bn) in the second quarter of 2007.
The growth was propelled not just by search engines (which increased their share of online adspend to 41%) but also by the wider consumer advertising sector. Classifieds continued to swell, but they did lose share within online to the Rich Media and Video formats which now account for 8% of all online advertising.
