Monterey, California — With more than 75 Spanish-language cable networks available to multichannel subs, Kagan Research, LLC expects those outlets to be the leaders in television ad revenue growth rates over the next decade. Kagan’s “Economics of Hispanic Television in the U.S.” reports that, compared with total U.S. media spending, Hispanic ad dollars are up significantly, about 12.1 percent in 2005 compared with a 6.6 percent boost for all U.S. advertising markets. The numbers for 2004 were similar, with Hispanic media up 12.1 percent versus a 5.7 percent rise for all U.S. media markets.
Kagan forecasts total Hispanic ad spend will achieve a hefty 10.3 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2004-’09, bettering 6.2 percent growth for all U.S. media. The beneficiaries of the boom include four over-the-air Spanish-language TV broadcasters, Univision, Telemundo, Telefutura and TV Azteca.There still exists a significant gap between Hispanic ad spending and Hispanic population share.
“Despite accounting for approximately 14 percent of the U.S. population, the Hispanic audience has been the ‘forgotten demo’,” said Deana Myers, senior analyst at Kagan Research. “That has changed as advertisers look to target this group’s rapidly growing buying power.”
Filling the ad spend gap of this increasingly valuable demographic will be a major focus of Hispanic media over the next ten years. Kagan estimates 3.4 percent of TV ad dollars in 2005 went to Hispanics, who accounted for 10.2 percent of TV households; those shares should rise to 4.2 percent of TV ad spend and 11.1 percent of TV households by 2009.
