1. INDUSTRY STRUCTURE AND DEVELOPMENT, OPPORTUNITIES AND THREATS

The advertising industry will, very quickly, need to understand the impact of this change and realise the opportunities that the new era will usher in. Many traditional touch points have vanished and new ones have emerged. Reinventing communication planning across this new customer path will be one of the biggest challenges and agencies who adopt the same will succeed in the years to come.

Clients have aggressively shifted their spends to digital, tech, data, e-com and OOH media. It was therefore imperative for your company to seriously look at expanding its bouquet of services. These will ensure developing new sources of revenue in the areas of digital, tech, data and product innovations. The pandemic has underscored the need for a transition, and as an industry, this transition will decide the course of our growth path. The challenge is to adopt change rapidly. Competitive forces affect strategy because your competitors react to the strategic actions you take in the marketplace, and your company has to react to their strategic moves. You have to make sure this interplay works to your advantage by using SWOT analysis to identify your companys strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, and by performing the same analysis for your competition.

2. THE FUTURE OUTLOOK

The future of print advertising in India is evolving in response to changing media consumption habits and the digital landscape.

With the rise of digital media and online advertising, there has been a shift in advertising spending towards digital platforms. Advertisers are increasingly allocating budgets to digital channels, including online display ads, social media advertising,and search engine marketing, apart from OOH media. Print circulation has been witnessing a gradual decline in recent years. As more people access news and information through digital platforms, the reach and influence of print media have been impacted. This shift has led some advertisers to reduce their print advertising budgets. Despite the overall decline, print media still offers advantages for certain advertising needs. Print publications with specific target audiences or niche markets can be effective for advertisers seeking to reach those segments. Print advertising can still be impactful when it focuses on creativity, innovation, and delivering a unique experience. Utilizing eye-catching visuals, interactive elements, and engaging storytelling can help print advertisements stand out and capture audience attention.
