Analyst Take: How the Coronavirus Will Change Our China Ad Spending Forecast

With the coronavirus pandemic leading to a significant economic slowdown, we’re providing updated guidance to our clients about what we expect for ad spending during H1 2020. We finalized our most recent complete forecast on March 6, 2020, before the cascade of drastic social distancing and market declines began globally. We have been providing guidance for our clients through this series of "Analyst Take" notes on US ad spending for search, display, digital video, TV and out-of-home. We have also issued guidance for ad spending in Canada, France, Germany and the UK. We will update our full-year forecast for digital ad spending again in June.
