Global TV Group publishes new data on reach and effectiveness of TV advertising

French TV advertising delivers an ROI of €4.9 for every Euro spent. In Australia, TV is by far the most efficient media channel, with the next best, search, achieving 57% against a TV benchmark of 100%. TV’s halo effect on digital advertising in Canada is such that without TV in a campaign, digital ROI would decline by 19%.

These are some of the statistics found in a report published by The Global TV Group, the informal grouping of trade bodies representing TV companies and sales houses in Europe, the USA, Canada, Australia and Latin America.

The report highlights some significant reach differences between different markets, with Portugal delivering an astonishing 99.7% monthly reach into its population using TV and Ireland achieving 99.5%, compared to the USA and Poland on 88.9% each and Australia at 89.1%. When it comes to daily reach achieved using TV, Portugal hits 84.9% and Canada reaches 78%, with Sweden (58.6%), Australia (55%) and Switzerland (53.9%) among the lower performers outside LatAm.

The report demonstrates that when it comes to television’s share of video time, Switzerland, Netherlands, Germany and Austria lead (with 86%, 86%, 85% and 85% respectively) while Sweden (51%) and Poland (63%) trail.

This third edition of the 'Global TV Deck' contains data on 26 countries covering TV’s reach, popularity, resilience, impact, and effectiveness, among other things. The Global TV Group says its “brand new set of updated and reliable facts is indispensable for marketers seeking to make the most informed decisions when it comes to their ad investments.”

Lindsey Clay, President of The Global TV Group & CEO at Thinkbox, says: “It was great to see so many advertisers and agencies find their way to the first two editions of the Global TV Deck and put them to use. We’re convinced that this edition will once again help marketers navigate the complex media landscape and look beyond their boundaries to realise that the resilience of TV is a worldwide reality.”

The Future of TV Advertising, a free, streamed event, takes place on July 9. Full details here.
