Advertising spending in South Africa 2017-2020, by medium The entire advertising market in South Africa in 2018 is estimated to be worth 36.6 billion South African rand (approximately 2.5 billion U.S. dollars), and TV and video advertising spending is projected to account for the largest share of that amount, around 21 percent. The internet is said to be the second largest medium in the country. However, looking at 2017-2022 compound growth rates, TV’s 3.8 percent CAGR in the period will be exceeded by internet’s 13 percent CAGR, which means that by the end of 2022 internet advertising will be higher than TV advertising for the first time.
