Analyst Opinion

The Print Advertising market in Vietnam has been experiencing significant growth in recent years, driven by changing customer preferences and local special circumstances.

Customer preferences:
Vietnamese consumers still have a strong preference for traditional media, including print advertising. Despite the rise of digital advertising, many consumers in Vietnam still trust and rely on print media for information and entertainment. Print advertising offers a tangible and credible platform for businesses to reach their target audience, especially in rural areas where internet penetration is lower.

Trends in the market:
One of the key trends in the Print Advertising market in Vietnam is the increasing demand for localized content. Advertisers are recognizing the importance of tailoring their messages to the local culture and language in order to effectively connect with Vietnamese consumers. This has led to a rise in the production of Vietnamese-language print advertisements, as well as the use of local celebrities and influencers to endorse products and services. Another trend in the market is the integration of digital technologies into print advertising. Advertisers are leveraging technologies such as QR codes and augmented reality to enhance the interactive and immersive experience of print advertisements. This allows consumers to engage with the brand beyond the printed page, leading to increased brand awareness and customer engagement.

Local special circumstances:
Vietnam has a rapidly growing middle class with increasing purchasing power. This has created a favorable environment for businesses to invest in print advertising as a means to reach and influence this expanding consumer segment. Additionally, the government's focus on infrastructure development and economic growth has attracted foreign investment, leading to increased competition among businesses. As a result, companies are turning to print advertising to differentiate themselves and increase brand visibility in a crowded market.

Underlying macroeconomic factors:
The Vietnamese economy has been experiencing steady growth in recent years, with a stable GDP growth rate and low inflation. This has contributed to a positive business environment, encouraging companies to invest in advertising to expand their market share. Additionally, the country's young and tech-savvy population has embraced digital technologies, leading to increased internet and smartphone penetration. However, despite the rise of digital advertising, print media continues to play a significant role in the Vietnamese advertising landscape due to its wide reach and credibility. In conclusion, the Print Advertising market in Vietnam is developing due to customer preferences for traditional media, the increasing demand for localized content, the integration of digital technologies, local special circumstances such as the growing middle class and government focus on infrastructure development, and underlying macroeconomic factors such as steady economic growth and high internet penetration.


Data coverage:

Data encompasses enterprises (B2B). Figures are based on print advertising spending and exclude agency commissions, rebates, production costs, and taxes. The market covers advertising in physical print editions (newspapers and magazines).

Modeling approach:

Market size is determined by a combined top-down and bottom-up approach. We use industry association reports, third-party reports, and survey results from our primary research (e.g., Consumer Insights Global Survey) to analyze the markets. To estimate the market size for each country individually, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific industry associations, such as GDP, population, urban population, and education index.


We use a variety of forecasting techniques, depending on the behavior of the market. For instance, the S-curve function is well suited to forecast digital products due to the non-linear growth of technology adoption, whereas exponential trend smoothing (ETS) is more suited for projecting steady growth in traditional advertising markets.

Additional notes:

Data is modeled using current exchange rates. The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war are considered at a country-specific level. The market is updated twice per year in case market dynamics change.
