Dentsu: Advertising Expenditures in Japan Totaled 5,891.3 Billion Yen in 2012, Up 3.2% from 2011

Dentsu Inc. (TOKYO:4324)(ISIN:JP3551520004)(President & CEO: Tadashi Ishii; Head Office: Tokyo; Capital: 58,967.1 million yen) released today its annual report of advertising expenditures in Japan for the 2012 calendar year, including an estimated breakdown by medium and industry.

According to this report, Japan's advertising expenditures in 2012 totaled 5,891.3 billion yen, an increase of 3.2% over the previous year. Overall spending on advertising began to fall in 2008 (down 4.7%) as a result of the simultaneous global recession precipitated by the financial crisis in the United States. Yearly spending continued to decline in 2009 (down 11.5%), 2010 (down 1.3%), and 2011 (down 2.3%), but bounced back in 2012 (up 3.2%), benefiting from a resumption in spending that had been delayed or postponed after the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. Japan's advertising expenditures increased in 2012 for the first time in five years.

Overview of Advertising Expenditures during 2012

  1. Ad placements recovered strongly during the second half of 2011 on reconstruction-related demand after the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, and this trend carried over through the first half of 2012. After the London 2012 Olympic Games, however, a slowdown in the overall economy depressed advertising expenditures. This was caused by a number of factors, including a fall in consumer spending after the discontinuance of the tax reduction and subsidy program for eco-car purchases, the high value of the yen, economic stagnation in Europe, and a decline in exports. Nevertheless, for the year as a whole advertising expenditures totaled 5,891.3 billion yen, a gain of 3.2% from the previous year; this was the first annual increase in five years. A strong recovery in ad placements pushed spending in the traditional media to 2,779.6 billion yen, exceeding the level achieved in 2010 before the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami.
  2. Broken down by medium, expenditures were higher in Television (up 3.0%), Newspapers (up 4.2%), and Magazines (up 0.4%), and held steady in Radio (down 0.1%). Overall spending in the traditional media was up 2.9%. Advertising in Promotional Media also grew (up 1.4%). Satellite Media-Related spending posted double-digit growth (up 13.7%) for a third straight year, boosted by placements related to the London 2012 Olympic Games. Internet advertising again posted solid gains (up 7.7%).
  3. By industry category (for the traditional media), expenditures grew in 16 of the 21 industry categories, including Automobiles/Related Products (up 26.9% on increased placements for K-cars [engine displacement up to 660cc] and 2-box vehicles), Information/Communications (up 10.5% on expenditures related to smartphone services, satellite broadcasting, and web content advertising), and Beverages/Cigarettes (up 7.0 % on expenditures related to beauty and energy drinks, lactic acid drinks, and carbonated beverages). In contrast, expenditures fell in 5 of the 21 industry categories, including Government/Organizations, where spending fell dramatically (down 69.4%) compared with 2011, which had seen a massive increase in public service placements by advertising organizations after the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami; and Classified Ads/Others (down 19.8% on declines in placements by corporate groups as well as the movie and theater industry).

• Outline of Advertising Expenditures by Medium
Advertising expenditures in the traditional media grew 2.9% compared with the previous year, reaching a total of 2,779.6 billion yen. Spending rose not only in Television (up 3.0%), but also in Newspapers and Magazines. Promotional Media advertising also posted gains (up 1.4%). Satellite Media-Related advertising expenditures were up 13.7%, boosted by demand related to the London 2012 Olympic Games. Internet advertising showed solid gains, up 7.7% year on year.

• Quarterly Breakdown of Growth in Advertising Expenditures in the Traditional Media in 2012
A quarterly breakdown of advertising expenditures for the traditional media in the 2012 calendar year showed that spending rose steadily during the first half of the year, but fell below previous-year levels during the last six months as the overall economy weakened.

• Outline of Advertising Expenditures by Industry (21 Categories, Traditional Media Only)
Advertising expenditures increased in 16 of the 21 industry categories surveyed during 2012, and declined in 5 categories.

Two industry categories posted double-digit gains: Automobiles/Related Products (up 26.9%) on increased placements for K-cars and 2-box vehicles, and Information/Communications (up 10.5%) on expenditures related to smartphone services, satellite broadcasting, and web content advertising. Expenditures also rose in Precision Instruments/Office Supplies (up 9.7%), aided by growth in placements for digital SLR cameras and wristwatches; Distribution/Retailing (up 8.6%), which saw stronger demand for general merchandise store and direct marketing advertising; Transportation/Leisure (up 8.2%) on a recovery in outlays by travel agencies, hotels and inns; Apparel/Fashion, Accessories/Personal Items (up 7.6%), due to increased spending on ads for women's clothing and shoes; Beverages/Cigarettes (up 7.0%) on expenditures related to beauty and energy drinks, lactic acid drinks, and carbonated beverages; Foodstuffs (up 6.4%), led by health foods and beauty-related food products; Food Services/Other Services (up 4.4%), which saw increased placements for ladies' wigs and aesthetic salons; Real Estate/Housing Facilities (up 4.1%) on an upsurge in demand for household fixtures and condominium advertising; Cosmetics/Toiletries (up 4.0%), boosted by growth in ads for skin toners and emulsions; Pharmaceuticals/Medical Supplies (up 3.4%), helped by a rise in corporate advertising by pharmaceutical companies, and in placements related to eyeglasses; Education/Medical Services/Religion (up 3.2%), which recorded increased spending on ads for English conversation and language schools, preparatory and tutoring schools, and correspondence education; Publications (up 3.0%) on higher placements for hardcover books, corporate advertising by publishers, and ads for hobby-related magazines; Finance/Insurance (up 2.7%) on the strength of corporate advertising by insurance companies, and ads for credit card loans; and Household Products (up 1.2%), led by placements for furniture and kitchen accessories.

Advertising expenditures fell in five industry categories, most notably in Government/Organizations (down 69.4%). This category saw a massive increase in public service ad placements by advertising organizations in 2011 after the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, but spending dropped back significantly in 2012; Classified Ads/Others (down 19.8%) on declines in placements by corporate groups as well as the movie and theater industry; Energy/Materials/Machinery (down 3.7%) on cutbacks by electric power and gas companies; Hobbies/Sporting Goods (down 1.9%), hurt by weakness in the areas of video software, pachinko machines and "pachi-slo" slot machines, and game software; and Home Electric Appliances/AV Equipment (down 0.7%), which saw a fall in demand for placements related to LCD televisions and Blu-ray disc recorders.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served.
