From the new edition of FIPP's World Magazine Trends 2013/2014 [data from ZenithOptimedia]:
Advertising expenditures in Central-/South America made up 7.1 % of global ad spending in 2012 (USD 33,317) ZenithOptimedia predicts high growth of 35 % until 2015 reaching USD 44,796. TV is the biggest media (market share 60%) in 2012. No. two are newspapers with a share of 17 %. Ad spending in magazine is only about 5 %, but stable. Internet advertising plays a very small role in Latin America, but ZenithOptimedia predict it will grow to 8 % share (still much behind the ROW).
The FIPP WMT 2014 is a great compendium for anyone in media and advertising who needs to know about international magazine markets and needs some basic data, resources, and contacts. This 10th compendium of World Magazine Trends has it all - for 54 countries - (if available).
