Standard Media Index (SMI), which calculates ad spending trends based on the data from media agencies, also shows a steady rise.

As we wrote recently, SMI data shows the country’s top 15 media agencies are spending much more on digital than print, while TV maintained its place at the top with $412 million of the total $882 million. So how does that compare to other markets?
In many developed markets, digital ad spend has overtaken print. But, despite consistent drops over the past few years, the local publishing sector has held firm in second place behind television, according to ASA figures.
