Ad-Tracking Pharma: GlaxoSmithKline Leads in Hispanic Print Advertising

GlaxoSmithKline was the largest Advertiser during the first nine months of 2007, according to Portada Ad-Tracking (see table below). Pharma advertisers invested more than $2 million in Hispanic newspapers. The figure is still very low compared to the $1 billion invested in the general market. Pharma is one of the most underrepresented categories within Hispanic print media (although one with the highest growth potential).

Among the main obstacles to growth are that many companies do not have Spanish-language sales force, that Pharma companies’ advertising directors do not see newspapers as mass media and FDA regulations are stringent with regard to pharmaceutical advertising.

Some Pharma advertising dollars and also HMO advertising is going into the online medium. For an analysis of HMO print and online advertising read: HMOs Increasingly Target Hispanic Market.
