TV ad spending in the US reached its highest point ever in 2018, a year that featured the Winter Olympics and a midterm congressional election—except no one realized it was a peak at the time. Linear TV had been stagnating for several years, though in early March 2020, the combo of the Summer Olympics and a big presidential campaign season looked set to generate a record $72.00 billion in US TV ad spending that year.

A less global set of Olympic fans: Olympic organizers have banned foreign spectators from attending the games in Japan this summer, and there are two questions marketers should consider in response to this decision.
MAY 13, 2020
In Japan, both TV and digital time spent will accelerate more than expected in 2020 thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting semi-lockdowns. However, the postponement of the Summer Olympics will limit the increase.
JUN 15, 2021
If the postponed Olympics manage to avoid outright cancellation, they will help traditional ad spend grow by 7.6% this year—but growth will fall again to 2.6% in 2022 and just 0.4% by 2025. The UEFA European Championship will give the European market a boost as well.

Print circulation came under obvious pressures, while radio suffered from the squeeze placed on it by the lack of global events like the Olympic Games and reduced spending power of the smaller businesses that local stations rely on. OOH: The OOH sector felt the pinch most in 2020, with spend down 46.3% YoY—in our pre-pandemic estimates, we had expected growth of 4.5%.
MAY 21, 2021
In October 2019, we forecast that US TV ad spending was poised for a bump in 2020 because of the upcoming Olympics and elections. At the time, we also believed upfront TV ad spending would grow because advertisers would want to lock in inventory around these marquee events. But, as with so many other things, the pandemic upended these predictions.

MAY 28, 2021
Amazon CFO Brian Olsavsky said on the company’s most recent earnings call that it intended to hold the event earlier in 2020 to account for the Olympics and the fact that July is a popular vacation time.

This coupled with the cancellation and postponement of massive sporting events—like the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and the 2020 Copa América soccer championship—will depress total media ad spending in Latin America this year. What does the road to recovery look like for Latin America’s advertising industry?
JUL 1, 2020
As in France, postponement of the UEFA European Football Championship and the Summer Olympics will contribute to a major loss in ad revenues for TV broadcasters. However, we are optimistic that some signs of recovery will appear in Q4. The pandemic is hastening the decline of print media.
JUN 30, 2020
Major live events, like the Olympic Games and UEFA Euro 2020, would have sucked up much TV ad budgeting, but now that they’re on hold, much of the promised TV ad dollars have entirely disappeared. Certain industries have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic, such as travel and hospitality, and have massively pulled back their TV ad spending.
APR 14, 2021
TV ad spending in the US reached its highest point ever in 2018, a year that featured the Winter Olympics and a midterm congressional election—but no one realized it at the time. Linear TV has been stagnating for several years, but we predicted in March 2020 that the combo of the Summer Olympics and a big presidential campaign season would add up to record US TV ad spending of $72.00 billion.
MAY 28, 2020
Part of the reason we were previously optimistic about 2020 TV ad spending was that the Summer Olympics and a presidential election year would boost ad spending. With the Olympics postponed, March Madness canceled, and the NBA, NHL and MLB on hold, the loss of sports programming will create a drop in TV ad dollars.
MAY 25, 2020

TV’s declines were related to a reduced schedule of live sports and the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics.

This report covers our latest forecast for digital ad spending in Canada and examines some of the advertising trends behind the numbers.
NOV 13, 2019
US TV ad spending will drop almost 3% this year, and a 1.0% bump in 2020 from the presidential election and Summer Olympics will not stave off a long-term decline for ad spending on the biggest traditional channel. According to eMarketer’s latest US ad forecast, TV ad spending peaked in 2018 at $72.40 billion.
MAR 26, 2020

TV ad spending in the UK will see even more significant declines due to the hiatus of major sports leagues and the cancellation of the Summer Olympics.

MAR 25, 2020
The Olympics and a presidential election helped prop up traditional (i.e., TV) ad spending in 2008. Only one of those things will happen this year. With the Olympics postponed to 2021 and the suspension of almost all professional US sporting leagues, TV media plans have been thoroughly upended. The Great Recession had been at least somewhat expected for several months.
