New York, Dec. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Radio Advertising Global Market Report 2022" -

The global radio market is expected to grow from $18.34 billion in 2021 to $19.58 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.8%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $23.43 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 4.6%.

The radio advertising market consists of the sales of advertising services and related goods by entities (organizations, sole traders and partnerships) that plan, develop, create and manage advertisement and promotional activities on the radio. Only goods and services traded between entities or sold to end consumers are included.

The main types of radio advertising are traditional radio advertising, terrestrial radio broadcast advertising, terrestrial radio online advertising, and satellite radio advertising.Traditional radio advertising purchases radio commercials to promote products or services.

Advertisers pay commercial radio stations for airtime, and the radio station in turn broadcasts the advertiser’s commercial to its listeners.The services are used by BFSI, consumer goods and retail, government and public sector, IT and telecom, healthcare, and media.

The different sizes of enterprises include large enterprise, small and medium enterprise.

The regions covered in this report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.

Cost-effective routes of advertisement for big and small companies are expected to drive the demand for the radio advertising market.Although newer advertising platforms such as the internet and other digital media are gaining traction in the advertising market, radio still represents a powerful advertising medium due to its high cost-effectiveness.

For smaller markets, companies spend about $900 a week for a 30-second ad schedule and around $8,000 a week in bigger markets such as Sydney.On average, companies pay around $20 to reach 1,000 listeners during peak times of the day and close to $10 or $15 during off-peak hours.

Therefore, the cost-effective routes of advertisement are predicted to fuel the demand for the radio advertising market.

The launch of digital radio is gaining popularity in the radio advertising market.Digital radio gives users greater spectral efficiency.

For instance, According to data from Radio Joint Audience Research Limited (RAJAR) published in October 2021, digital listening in the UK has increased to 65.8 percent of all radio listening. DAB is now the most popular radio listening platform, accounting for 43 percent of all listening compared to 34.2 percent for AM/FM. Moreover, if digital modulation methods that require more complex transmitters and receivers are used, more information could be transmitted in comparison to traditional analog modulation schemes.

A decrease in radio ad spending is likely to limit the growth of the radio advertising market.A decline in ad spending on traditional channels is part of a long-standing trend.

The companies are investigating alternative business models and evaluating innovative emerging technologies such as online fixed programmatic display and mobile video that provide consumers with instant access to the content.However, the pandemic has caused a significant decline in radio ad spending by several industries due to social distancing, containment restrictions, and closure of industries and other social activities.

According to the Radio Today radio station, Australia, the spending on radio ads declined by 32.8% in August 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. The radio ad spending has declined disproportionately in recent months due to advertisers cutting their overall media budgets, which is likely to hinder the market growth.

In February 2019, iHeartMedia, an American mass media corporation, announced its acquisition with Radiojar Information Technology S.A for an undisclosed amount. With the acquisition of Radiojar Information Technology S.A, iHeartMedia plans to leverage Radiojar’s tools to coherently associate with the seamless elements of broadcast radio and transition these skillfully produced listening experiences into any audio platforms including music streaming and podcasts, delivering high-quality audio experiences more effectively and efficiently. Radiojar Information Technology S.A is a company that provides online radio management and streaming solutions.

The countries covered in the radio advertising market are Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Russia, South Korea, UK and USA.
