Ad Spending in Southeast Asia: New Forecasts for an Emerging Digital Region

eMarketer Report

Executive Summary

This report provides new forecasts for total media, digital and mobile internet ad spending in six markets in Southeast Asia: Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

  • Digital ad spending in individual countries varies considerably, with more advanced economies adopting digital at a quicker pace. Nonetheless, all six countries will see double-digit gains in digital ad spending in 2017. Increased demand for mobile, video and social media advertising will drive this growth.
  • Advertisers in Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia and Vietnam have been slow to adopt digital. Digital spending will account for less than 20% of overall media investment in 2017. But because of rapid internet adoption, particularly through smartphones, digital ad spending will surge in those markets.
  • Overall media ad spending in Singapore is likely to be slow during the forecast period. But investment on digital channels will continue to see double-digit growth through 2019.

"eMarketer drafted initial estimates based on an analysis of the macro-level economic conditions in the region, historical trends of the advertising market, estimates from other research firms and consumer media usage data. Estimates were then updated after being vetted by member companies of IAB Singapore, with input from agency executives, publishers and research companies in the region."
