Figues demonstrated that online advertising is the only growth area in an industry that has been dealing with decreased spending on other media. Online ad spending ranks number 3 in total media spend, outperforming radio, outdoor, cinema and magazines.
According to Bartley O'Connor, Advisory Consulting, PwC, "'the strong growth in online advertising highlighted by the most recent IAB\PwC study demonstrates the level of activity and vibrancy of the online industry in Ireland at a time when many other industries are experiencing difficulties. We are now at a tipping point where all businesses need to consider their digital strategy and how they will capture the opportunities associated with the migration to digital platforms."
