The automotive, media and financial-services industries are expected to lead the way in total advertising spending. The annual increase in automakers'will be 24 percent, while the travel industry should see a 13 percent increase through 2010, indicated a JupiterResearch study released Thursday.
The research firm said advertising agencies and publishers who want to do well should be sensitive to each industrial sector's needs. Marketers, for instance, want an integrated approach to their online and offline campaigns.
"Agencies that can devise and manage integrated campaigns stand to gain more from rising ad budgets," David Schatsky, a JupiterResearch senior vice president, said in a statement.
Agencies should also know which ad categories in which their clients are most interested. Companies selling consumer packaged goods, so far not big spenders on online ads, will spend 83 percent of their online-advertising budgets on display ads in 2010, JupiterResearch predicts. Companies selling health products, however, will focus their online efforts on search ads.
The study also showed that telecommunications, media and entertainment, and finance companies currently account for nearly half of all online display and search advertising spending.
