Analyst Opinion

The Newspaper Advertising market in Asia is experiencing significant growth and development in recent years.

Customer preferences:
Customers in Asia still value traditional print media, including newspapers, as a trusted source of information. They appreciate the tangible nature of newspapers and the ability to physically flip through pages. Additionally, many Asian countries have large populations with limited access to the internet, making newspapers a primary source of news and information for these individuals.

Trends in the market:
One of the key trends in the Newspaper Advertising market in Asia is the shift towards digital advertising. As internet penetration and smartphone adoption rates increase across the region, advertisers are recognizing the potential of online platforms to reach a wider audience. This has led to a decline in print newspaper circulation and a corresponding increase in digital newspaper advertising. Advertisers are leveraging the targeting capabilities and cost-effectiveness of digital platforms to reach their desired audience more efficiently. Another trend in the market is the rise of native advertising. Native advertising seamlessly integrates promotional content within the editorial framework of newspapers, providing a more engaging and less intrusive advertising experience for readers. This form of advertising is gaining popularity in Asia as it allows brands to connect with consumers in a more organic and authentic way.

Local special circumstances:
Each country in Asia has its own unique set of circumstances that influence the Newspaper Advertising market. For example, in countries like China and India with large populations, newspapers continue to be a popular medium for advertisers to reach a wide audience. In contrast, in more developed countries like Japan and South Korea, where internet penetration rates are high, digital newspaper advertising is more prevalent.

Underlying macroeconomic factors:
The economic growth and increasing disposable income in many Asian countries have contributed to the development of the Newspaper Advertising market. As economies expand, businesses have more resources to invest in advertising, leading to increased demand for newspaper advertising space. Additionally, the growing middle class in Asia has become an attractive target market for advertisers. This demographic segment is more likely to consume newspapers and engage with newspaper advertisements. Advertisers are capitalizing on this opportunity by creating targeted and relevant advertisements to appeal to the preferences and interests of the middle-class consumers. In conclusion, the Newspaper Advertising market in Asia is evolving to meet the changing preferences of customers and the shifting landscape of the media industry. While traditional print advertising remains important, the rise of digital platforms and native advertising is reshaping the market. Advertisers are adapting their strategies to leverage the opportunities presented by these trends, while also considering the local special circumstances and macroeconomic factors in each country.


Data coverage:

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

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.
