Frequently Asked Questions
Isn’t all of your research eMarketer?
Insider Intelligence was formed in 2020 from the combination of two research firms owned by Axel Springer: Business Insider Intelligence and eMarketer. We’ve retained the eMarketer name within our advertising, media, and marketing coverage to honor eMarketer’s 25+ year legacy as the most comprehensive source of information on how to operate in a digital world — trusted by CMOs to provide unparalleled insight into changing consumer behaviors, and recognized worldwide for its iconic data-packed charts.
How are consumers spending their time, both online and offline?
In most cases, overall media time will decline slightly this year as social conditions normalize, but in the Asia-Pacific markets we cover, it will continue to rise. TV will rapidly lose all of its 2020 gains in North America, the UK, Germany, and China, though in other countries, its resuscitation will linger through the end of our forecast period in 2023. Time spent with digital media will return to growth in all markets by 2022, but some will grow much faster than others. Digital video will carve away at TV time in most markets, albeit at vastly different rates.
What are my competitors doing to reach consumers?
Digital ad spending is the name of the game, now and in the near future. Total media ad spending worldwide will reach $747.67 billion in 2021, at a growth rate of 15.0% — the fastest since we began tracking the metric 10 years ago. By 2024, that figure will nearly reach $1 trillion. For context, the $500 billion mark was just crossed in 2016.
