Amid the rapidly changing global media and communications landscape, branded entertainment marketing, including consumer events and product placement, is posting accelerating growth during the upcoming five year forecast period as it has emerged as a leading alternative marketing strategy to digital advertising & marketing according to a new global forecast from PQ Media, the leading provider of global media econometrics.
Five years removed from the Great Global Recession, branded entertainment marketing had continued to gain acceptance among brand marketers worldwide, with many forming dedicated divisions to accelerate the negotiation process with global media companies. According to PQ Media's exclusive spending and growth datasets, branded entertainment revenues rose 6.3% in 2014 to reach $73.27 in 2014, trailing only combined internet advertising & marketing revenues among the nine digital & alternative media platforms it tracks, including being double the size of revenues currently being generated by mobile advertising & marketing. The US is the world's largest branded entertainment market, accounting for 47.1% of total branded entertainment revenues.
The resilience of global branded entertainment marketing spend as detailed in the current report is in sharp contrast to the weaker growth of traditional brand marketing platforms, such as broadcast television, newspapers, direct marketing and consumer promotions. PQ Media's data on media consumption shows that younger demographics are shifting away from traditional advertising and marketing platforms, and brands are becoming more proactive finding different media platforms that will engage with this more tech-savvy audience.
The need to gain brand awareness among consumers, create positive brand associations which can impact consumer sales will underpin branded entertainment marketing global development for the foreseeable future. This will be especially true for multinational brand marketers.
PQ Media expects global branded entertainment revenues to post accelerated growth annually during the forecast period, spurred by product placements in nascent markets like music and other media, particularly print media that are seeking alternative revenue streams to counter the falling advertising market. Meanwhile, consumer events are increasingly becoming an important part of integrated media campaigns, especially with new product launches, some of which were tabled over the past five years due to sluggish economies worldwide.
