Automotive, telecommunications and travel spending grow

With the growth of Hispanic Internet industry, there is a lot of interest in which categories have the most potential. The categories with the highest year on year growth rate in terms of internet marketing (April 2004-March 2005, compared to the same period of the prior year) are automotive, telecommunications and travel, which are also growing in the general Hispanic advertising market. A recently published Jupiter Research forecast of general market online advertising growth predicts that the financial category will grow the most to US $1.69 billion. Online ad-spending in media & entertainment, automotive and travel is also expected to increase significantly. For the Hispanic market, automotive and financial categories look strong going forward. The figure above shows that the Hispanic market as a whole is growing at a very high rate (26%), albeit from a low base (see “Hispanic online advertising, a force to be reckoned with,” page 28, Portada® No. 14, February/March 2005).
