The U.S. will continue to be the primary engine driving the global ad economy for the foreseeable future, says the latest prediction from Publicis’ Zenith unit. The forecast projects the U.S. will contribute 28 percent of worldwide ad expansion through 2019 – which is significant considering how mature the U.S. marketplace is relative to big developing nations. China is projected to be the second-largest contributor, with an estimated 24 percent of global ad growth.

The National Retail Federation (NRF) predicts record spending for the upcoming Easter holiday, and expects Americans who observe the event to spend $18.4 billion, a 6-percent hop from last year’s $17.3 billion.

A Forrester Research study says that 19 percent of consumers identified search as the most influential channel when researching their most recent purchase, compared with 7 percent who said the same for any form of offline media. Forrester found that search is often omitted from the media mix.
