Online Banner Ads to grow by 40% in 2008-09: IAMAI study

The online banner ad market will grow at 40% to reach Rs 350 crores by 2008-09 from its current size of Rs 235 crores [2007-08]. That is according to a just released study titled “Online Banner Advertisement in India” by the Internet and Mobile Association [IAMAI] and IMRB.

The study has revealed that BFSI, the online industry and ITES with 25%, 25% and 13% share are the leading advertisers in the online banner space in 2007- 08. The share of BFSI is expected to rise marginally to 26% while the share of online companies is likely to come down to 23% in 2008-09. Auto, FMCG, consumer durables and education are some of the leading sectoral advertisers in the online banner space.

While the ad spends per user continue to be dismal vis-à-vis the US and Europe market, at 1.2 USD, it is likely to rise to 1.6 USD in 2008-09.
