India offers huge business potential for online advertising industry with rising population, growing income level and changing lifestyle. With increasing number of educated people and migration to urban areas, increase adoption in internet and online advertising is being witnessed. Despite the growth, many challenges continue to plague the industry such as underdeveloped infrastructure and lack of faith of both advertisers and audiences.

Online advertising is developing rapidly in the country but decline in advertising revenues have been noticed during 2009 due to the global economic slowdown. However, in 2010, a recovery in advertising spend was witnessed, due to an improvement in market sentiments. Moreover, sectors like finance, IT and education, which are the largest contributors to online advertising, reduced their advertising budget during 2009 and from the second quarter of 2010 onwards again started increasing their advertising spending. In 2010, online advertising surpassed growth rate of other advertising formats like TV, print and radio. The factors that helped the industry growth were, increase in internet penetration, e-commerce, social networking and population growth.

Among the various online ad categories, display advertising has always been the leading segment. Sectors such as travel, Banking, Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI), telecom, auto and online publishers dominated the display advertising segment. Sector wise, text advertising is dominated by BFSI, followed by travel and online publishers. Mobile advertising is a relatively new concept in India and it includes banners, text, click to call, click to SMS, in-game among others. With increasing demand for smart phones and 3G networks, mobile internet data usage is expected to be the growth driver, thereby leading to growth in mobile advertising. The role of social media is also rising due to growing internet access and also on account of social media becoming a standard element of web use.

Growth and new business opportunities exists for the online advertising industry in India, due to a large youth population, popularity of social networking sites, growing e-commerce trade, increase in educated population and broadband connectivity, as well as decreasing internet and telecom costs.
