Game Advertising Spending to exceed more than $2 Billion in 2012

Game advertising spending in the U.S. will grow from $370 million in 2006 to more than $2 billion in 2012, according to Electronic Gaming in the Digital Home: Game Advertising, a new report from Parks Associates. Over that time, game advertising will achieve a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 33%, much higher than that of other major advertising media, including TV, radio, print, and the Internet.


“Advertising in electronic games had an average monthly household expenditure of less than 50 cents in 2006, while broadcast TV was at $37, meaning advertisers are not using the gaming medium to its full potential,” said Yuanzhe (Michael) Cai, director of broadband and gaming, Parks Associates. “If executed correctly, game advertising can provide a win-win solution for advertisers, developers and publishers, console manufacturers, game portals, and gamers.”

Electronic Gaming in the Digital Home: Game Advertising paints a complete picture of the fledging game advertising industry. The report includes analysis and forecasts for different game advertising models and provides profiles of 26 key players in the game advertising industry and comprehensive consumer perspectives.
