Analyst Opinion

The TV & Video Advertising market in United States has been experiencing significant growth in recent years. This can be attributed to several factors, including changing customer preferences, emerging trends in the market, local special circumstances, and underlying macroeconomic factors.

Customer preferences:
Customers in the United States have shown a strong preference for TV and video advertising. This can be attributed to the widespread availability of high-speed internet and the increasing popularity of streaming services. Many consumers now prefer to watch their favorite TV shows and movies online, and this has created a demand for targeted advertising on these platforms. Additionally, customers appreciate the convenience and flexibility of being able to watch content on-demand, which has further fueled the growth of TV and video advertising.

Trends in the market:
One of the key trends in the TV & Video Advertising market in United States is the shift towards programmatic advertising. Programmatic advertising uses algorithms and data analysis to automate the buying, placement, and optimization of ads. This allows advertisers to reach their target audience more effectively and efficiently. Programmatic advertising has gained popularity in the United States due to its ability to deliver personalized and relevant ads to consumers. Another trend in the market is the increasing use of mobile devices for video consumption. With the widespread adoption of smartphones and tablets, consumers are now watching videos on their mobile devices more than ever before. This trend has created new opportunities for advertisers to reach their target audience through mobile video advertising. Advertisers are increasingly investing in mobile video ads to capture the attention of consumers on the go.

Local special circumstances:
The United States has a large and diverse population, which presents both opportunities and challenges for advertisers. Advertisers need to consider the cultural, linguistic, and regional differences within the country when developing their advertising campaigns. This requires a deep understanding of the local market and the ability to tailor messages to specific audiences. Advertisers that can successfully navigate these local special circumstances are more likely to succeed in the TV & Video Advertising market in United States.

These underlying macroeconomic factors have created a favorable environment for the growth of the TV & Video Advertising market in United States. In conclusion, the TV & Video Advertising market in United States is experiencing significant growth due to changing customer preferences, emerging trends in the market, local special circumstances, and underlying macroeconomic factors. Advertisers that can adapt to these factors and tailor their advertising strategies accordingly are well-positioned to succeed in this dynamic market.


Data coverage:

Data encompasses enterprises (B2B). Figures are based on TV and video advertising spending and exclude agency commissions, rebates, production costs, and taxes. The market covers traditional TV advertising (non-digital formats such as terrestrial TV, cable TV, satellite TV, and linear TV) and digital video advertising (video ad formats: web-based, app-based, on social media, and connected devices).

Modeling approach:

Market size is determined by a combined top-down and bottom-up approach. We use annual financial reports of the market-leading companies and industry associations, third-party reports, web traffic, and survey results from our primary research (e.g., Consumer Insights) 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, media consumption, internet users, consumer spending, and digital consumer spending.


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.
