Global Branded Entertainment Marketing Forecast 2018


PQ Media’s Global Branded Entertainment Marketing Forecast 2018 is the 7th edition in this groundbreaking market research series that is recognized worldwide as the industry’s biennial performance benchmark. The new edition has been expanded to include new branded entertainment marketing platforms and channels, as well as five new countries. This year’s Forecast delivers intelligent data and analysis examining the entire 2012-22 period, providing 2012-16 historical data, 2017 year-end estimates, 2018 pacing data, and 2018-22 growth projections.

Since 2005, PQ Media has been the only credible and consistent source of actionable data and insights covering the entire branded entertainment industry. And for 13 years, our Global Branded Entertainment Forecast has been the industry standard for defining, segmenting, sizing, analyzing and projecting outcomes across all four global regions, the 20 largest countries, three key media platforms and 11 marketing channels, including:

  • Product Placement in television, film, video games, online media, mobile media, recorded music, radio and print media;
  • Consumer Experiential Marketing, including consumer event sponsorships and event marketing; and
  • (NEW PLATFORM IN 2018) Consumer Content Marketing, such as hybrid (print digital) content marketing, digital-only content marketing, and non-textual content marketing

PQ Media estimates that global branded entertainment revenues grew at twice the rate of overall advertising & marketing revenues in 2017 to surpass $100 billion for the first time ever, as brand marketers shift their investments to media channels that demonstrate the ability to engage target consumers, create emotional connections and increase sales, despite strong headwinds negatively impacting both digital and traditional media. In particular, brand marketers have become more critical of digital advertising and marketing channels, following a series of issues that surfaced in 2017 related to fake news, ad fraud, placement of ads near controversial content, and the growing use of ad blockers.

In an effort to avoid these pitfalls, brand marketers have increased their use of branded entertainment platforms, such as product placement in media, consumer experiential marketing and consumer content marketing, which have continued to gain acceptance worldwide, leading a number of major advertisers and agencies to form in-house divisions dedicated to planning, negotiating and executing branded entertainment deals with media operators and producers worldwide.

As detailed in the new report, the continued growth of branded entertainment marketing is in sharp contrast to the weaker growth of traditional advertising & marketing platforms, such as television, newspapers, direct marketing and consumer promotions. In addition, PQ Media’s exclusive consumer time spent with media data indicates that younger demographics are moving away from traditional media platforms, while major brands are proactively seeking alternative media channels to engage these more mobile, tech-savvy younger audiences.

The strong desire to gain brand awareness among target consumers, create positive brand associations and, ultimately, produce sales lift will continue to favor branded entertainment marketing worldwide over the next five years. Accordingly, PQ Media expects branded entertainment revenues to continue a strong growth pace throughout the forecast period, particularly in even years when major global sporting and political events will provide additional growth opportunities via product placement in various media, event marketing and content marketing.
