Analyst Opinion

The Print Advertising market in India has been experiencing significant growth in recent years. Customer preferences, trends in the market, local special circumstances, and underlying macroeconomic factors have all contributed to this development. Customer preferences in India have played a crucial role in driving the growth of the Print Advertising market. Despite the rise of digital advertising, many Indian consumers still prefer print media for obtaining information and staying connected. Print advertisements are seen as more trustworthy and credible compared to online ads, which are often perceived as intrusive and untrustworthy. Additionally, print media provides a tangible and physical experience that cannot be replicated by digital platforms. These customer preferences have created a strong demand for print advertising in India. Trends in the market have also contributed to the growth of the Print Advertising industry in India. Print media companies have adapted to the changing landscape by offering innovative and targeted advertising solutions. They have embraced technology and data analytics to provide advertisers with more accurate audience targeting and measurement capabilities. This has made print advertising more effective and efficient, attracting more advertisers to the medium. Furthermore, print media companies have diversified their offerings by integrating digital elements into their print publications, creating a seamless and integrated advertising experience for consumers. Local special circumstances have also played a role in the development of the Print Advertising market in India. The country has a diverse population with multiple languages and cultures. Print media allows advertisers to reach specific regional and niche audiences effectively. This localized approach has been successful in India, where regional newspapers and magazines have a strong readership and influence. Advertisers recognize the importance of targeting these specific audiences and have increased their investments in print advertising to reach them. Underlying macroeconomic factors have also contributed to the growth of the Print Advertising market in India. The country has experienced steady economic growth, resulting in an expanding middle class with increased purchasing power. This has led to higher consumer spending and increased demand for products and services. Advertisers have recognized the potential of the Indian market and have increased their advertising budgets to capture the attention of this growing consumer base. Print advertising provides a cost-effective and targeted way to reach these consumers, driving the growth of the market. In conclusion, the Print Advertising market in India has been developing due to customer preferences, trends in the market, local special circumstances, and underlying macroeconomic factors. The strong demand for print media, innovative advertising solutions, localized targeting, and economic growth have all contributed to the growth of the market. As these factors continue to evolve, the Print Advertising market in India is expected to further expand in the coming years.


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.
