Major Spanish media groups with presence in the United States and Latin America have been going through tough times since 2013. This is mostly because of the continued difficult economic environment in Spain as well as high debt loads.

However, the i2p study estimates that investment will grow 1.5% in 2014, while print media still is expected to experience declines. In this sense, the study predicts increases of 5.5% and 3.5% for internet and television, respectively, while the daily press and the magazines are expected to fall 3.4% and 4.3%.
