Advertising income for newspapers in the country grossed N143.1 billion between 2006 and December 2015, revealing a wavy pattern that reached its peak in 2014 with N25 billion; and declined
to 23.7 billion at the end of 2015.


This was contained in a special report by Mediafacts published by mediaReach OMD, which assessed advertising performance of Nigerian newspapers in the last ten years.

Titled, mediafacts Nigeria 10 Year Trend Review, 2006 to 2016, the N4.4 billion advert incomein 2006 moved up to N4.8 and N4.9 billion in 2007 and 2008 respectively. Newspapers got N15.8 billion in 2009 and N16.5 billion in 2010. According to the publication, the figure declined to N15.4 in 2011 and slipped further to N9.0 billion in 2012. The downward slope however changed in 2013 with an advert income of N18.5 billion and rose to its peak in 2014, hitting N25.8. The figure went down by N2.1billion in 2015 when the newspapers received N23.7 billion.

MediaReach OMD explained that the newspapers tend to mostly attract their highest advert patronage in the second and third quarters, with exception of 2013 and 2014 which had their highest spending in the fourth quarters of the year.

“In terms of regional spending in the last ten years, the split is between Lagos and North, with Lagos constantly attracting the dominant share of advert spending year after year.

The product analysis however shows that Glo has consistently dominated the list of press advertising, rising steadily in the last three years to tie with Guaranty Trust Bank ahead of others while MTN currently occupies the third position”.

But in terms of advertising expenditure across board, the TV medium consistently enjoyed the lion share of advert budget over the years. It is followed by the Out of Home (OOH) medium except for 2014 and 2015, when the print medium followed the leading TV medium. The newspapers had
however experienced the highest growth rate in terms of advert spends especially in the last three years.

For total advertising expenditure, the year 2013 enjoyed the highest spending with N103.8 billion, representing a marginal increase over year 2011 spending of N 102.8 billion. There was a decline in 2014 as compared to the high spending in 2013.

The general economic outlook during the period under review showed a Gross Domestic Product, GDP estimated at 6.1 per cent in 2014, owing to continued strong performance mainly in services, but also in industry.
The oil sector was in decline, albeit at a slower rate than in the previous year. Also in 2014, oil and gas GDP was estimated to have declined by 1.3 per cent, relative to a decline of 13.1 per cent in 2013.

Managing Director, mediaReach OMD, Mr. Tolu Ogunkoya, said Nigeria’s media remained one of the most dynamic in Africa.

Each of the 36 states has at least a TV station and one radio. There are hundreds of radio stations and terrestrial TV stations, as well as cable and direct-to- home satellite offerings.
