Growth was particularly strong in the second quarter, which saw significant increases across TV, radio and the internet, leading to a total of £5.515 billion for the quarter, according to AA/WARC. Over the first six months taken together, ad spend grew by 6.3% year-on-year, leading the trade body to make an upward revision to its full-year forecasts to 6.4%.
TV advertising is now expected to grow by 7.8% this year, up from the 3.6% growth recorded in 2013. TV accounted for £4.642 billion in 2013, including £126 million of broadcaster video-on-demand advertising. The latter is expected to grow by 27% this year.

Internet advertising accounted for £6.281 billion in sles last year, and is expected to to grow by 15.1% this year, compared with growth of 14.1% last year. the Internet ad market is expected to growth by 13.1% next year, with mobile – which accounted for £1.021 billion in sales in 2013, growing by an expected 56% this year and 42.8% next year.
“Growth at twice the rate of UK GDP is quite a headline, but the real story is of digital and creative leadership in e-commerce. As the Eurozone wobbles, it’s a reminder that our consumer economy is central to the UK’s economic narrative,” said Tim Lefroy, CEO of the Advertising Association.
