GroupM predicts that UK digital advertising revenues will eclipse TV ad revenues by next year, writes The Guardian. The firm expects online adspend to grow over 30% during the next year, reaching £3.4bn. TV advertising will grow less than 1% during the same period. Alternative figures published by the World Advertising Research Centre (WARC) conclude that online adspend could grow as much as 37.9% in the coming year.
While Group M expects the UK to become the first major economy with higher adspend online than on TV, the firm forecasts that Sweden will achieve this during 2008 with 19.5% of adspend going online against 19.2% going on TV ads.
