Review of 2012
Total Australian entertainment and media spending grew by 0.7 percent in 2012, compared to a growth of 5.8 percent globally, and up from 0.2 percent in 2011. The industry bounced back from a decline in consumer spending in 2011, which rose 1.1 percent in 2012, primarily driven by strong results in internet and subscription TV.
In contrast, advertising in entertainment and media grew by a meagre 0.1 percent in 2012. The best performing sectors were internet and filmed entertainment, with both achieving growth of 14.9 percent.
