Top Ten Product Categories By Ad Spend

March 1, 2010

From the Nielsen Company:


Spending by the top ten product categories was down 9.5% in 2009. The automotive industry was the top category with over $8 billion spent last year. Pharmaceutical, Quick Service Restaurants, and Department Stores were next on the list, with each category showing year-over-year gains.

While the Automotive category will remain the top Ad spending category, I doubt it will ever return to 2008 spending levels.
