TV Ad Market Is “Softening” As Upfront Sales Approach, Research Firm Says

Look out broadcasters: The ad market appears to be “softening” ahead of the upfront sales season according to an analysis out this morning from Standard Media Index, an advertising research firm.

National TV ad spending has grown for most of the 2016-17 broadcast season, but that “has been tempered by 1Q 2017 which saw a slow down in ad spend,” SMI says in its first published analysis ahead of the upfronts.

It observes that the scatter market was down 11.5% to $3.8 billion in the broadcast year up to March. By contrast, the upfront was up 3.7% to $16.5 billion.

SMI notes that the “overall implications of this on the upcoming Upfronts cannot be fully determined as yet.”

Still, it sees TV networks adjusting to a market where brands “continue to want more for less.” Most broadcasters have already said that they will offer “omnichannel deals” and data-driven targeting.
