eMarketer Lowers US TV Ad Spend Estimate as Cord-Cutting Accelerates

By 2021, pay TV audience will shrink nearly 10%

New York, NY (September 13, 2017) — eMarketer has reduced its estimate for US TV ad spending due to faster-than-expected growth in cord-cutting.  This year, US TV ad investment will expand just 0.5% to $71.65 billion, a figure down from the $72.72 billion predicted in our Q1 forecast for 2017. As a result, TV’s share of total media ad spending in the US will drop to 34.9%, and is expected to fall below 30% by 2021.
