Online adspend drops 5% in US to reach $5.5bn


The latest US figures from the IAB and PwC show that online adspend fell 5% year-on-year in Q1. Against the previous quarter the decline was even higher at 10%. The results represent the first time that year-on-year figures have been negative since 2002.
However, total US advertising figures from Nielsen suggest a slower drop in online adspend. Their figures for online display advertising show a 3.4% drop (to $2.11bn) against a total quarterly advertising decrease of 12% (to $27.9bn).
At the other end of the scale TNS Media have bucked the trend to report an 8.2% year-on-year rise in quarterly online display advertising against a total fall in the US advertising market of 14.2%.
