Native advertising to account for up to 40% of ad budgets by 2020

FIPP and the Native Advertising Institute have released the results of the second annual global research study on native advertising in the magazine media industry.

The new results of the second annual global research study on native advertising in the magazine media industry show that in 2016, native accounted for 21% of overall advertising revenue. By 2020, that's expected to almost double to 40%. 

This year 207 magazine executives from 53 countries have shared their native advertising experiences and their insights provide food for thought for everyone working in the industry.

Ninety-one per cent said that native advertising is ‘Important’ or ‘Very important’ to their business. This is reinforced by the impact that native advertising is having on advertising budgets. In 2016, native accounted for 21% of overall advertising revenue.

Native is also becoming a normal part of most businesses’ advertising revenue mix. 54% of publishers are already selling native advertising and a further 37% are ‘Likely’ or ‘Most likely’ to do so in the future. 92% are providing written content, 63% video and, surprisingly, 45% are offering native events.

Magazine publishers are increasingly spreading their native wings to pursue opportunities well beyond their own traditional channels and into influencer advertising, social media and physical experiences, much as they are doing in the rest of their business. But while native advertising is growing in importance and penetration, it is not without challenges and even threats. Read more in the report.

For eleven of CNI's Vogues, innovative approaches to Instagram increased engagement and followers. For ALT.dk in Denmark, innovation meant turning Egmont Publishing's eight women's magazines into a one-stop digital destination for women.

  • The Mr. Magazine™ interview: Entertainment Weekly proves weekly magazine brands can stand strong on all platforms

    “I don’t just consider myself editor-in-chief of a weekly magazine, but of an entire content organisation. I became editor-in-chief a little over three years ago, and I remember when I was growing up, I felt that Entertainment Weekly set the agenda for that particular week’s conversation, like this is what we need to be psyched about in entertainment. So, I really tried to move that thought process into the 21st century. And I really want to give readers something on the cover of this magazine and inside the magazine that they can’t get on the internet, that they can’t find on anyone’s social media feed, because of what our access allows.” Henry Goldblatt, EIC, Entertainment Weekly
