Statistics in Context: Latin America Leads in Advertising Growth….

Latin America was, by far, the region that most grew during the first half of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009, according to statistics by The Nielsen Company. The impressive growth rate of 44.5% was the result of Latin America’s high economic growth, spurred by high commodity prices and overall sound macroeconomic policies. Advertising expenditures in Brazil leapt 50.2% and Mexico registered a 40% improvement. Latin American Financial Services Groups furthered their advertising outlay by 73.9%, according to the Nielsen Company. 

…. and the U.S. grows again, with Spanish TV and Cable on fire

National magazines were also up 7.4 percent. Alternatively, local Sunday supplements and national newspapers declined 7.9 percent and 6.9 percent respectively.
