Spending on internet display reported the biggest jump in the half year, rising 27 per cent globally year on year. This continued the trend of previous reports – spend on internet display increased 26.3 per cent in the first quarter in isolation.

The figures, from Nielsen’s quarterly Global AdView Pulse report covering Q1 and Q2, also showed that TV spend was up 4.2 per cent. TV maintained its dominant share of expenditure, accounting for 57.6 per cent of total ad spend.

Spend on outdoor media increased five per cent year on year to make up 18.9 per cent of total ad spend over the six months. Outdoor was the only platform with increased spend in all the regions measured by the report.

Excluding TV, traditional media platforms recorded small declines. Spending on newspapers (down two per cent) magazines (down 1.9 per cent) and radio (down 0.9 per cent) all declined in the first half of the year.

Cinema was the hardest-hit platform, with spend in cinemas dropping 5.9 percent after expenditure fell in all regions except Latin America.

Randall Beard, the global head of advertiser solutions for Nielsen, said: "It’s clear that advertisers are wisely maximizing their opportunities to reach consumers across platforms, with TV ad dollars showing no signs of slowing and noteworthy increases in internet adspend.

"Recognising the usage habits of consumers to best reach them through increased exposure is the savvy marketer’s game plan to make those messages hit home."
