Americans in 2006 will consume, on average, more than 9.5 hours of media daily and pay $888 in the course of the year for media options ranging from magazine subscriptions to DVDs, according to the forecast of Veronis Suhler Stevenson.
By 2009, marketers will have increased their annual media support by $100 billion from 10 years earlier, according to Veronis Suhler. But this generous ad support won’t stop consumers from spending less time with ad-supported media. Consumer time spent with ad-backed outlets is expected to fall to 54.1% from 63.6% of their total media time.
