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.

But while native advertising is growing in importance and penetration, it is not without challenges and even threats. Read more in the report.
