Dentsu Ad Spend Forecast 2023
Published on:

Advertising investment is forecast to grow by 8.0% globally in 2022, according to the latest dentsu Global Ad Spend Forecast report. The twice-yearly report, which combines data from close to 60 markets globally, now anticipates US$713.6 billion will be spent worldwide in this December forecast, which also looks ahead to 2025.
