America is responsible for nearly half (48%) of the world’s advertising spending. This is followed the closest by measured nations in Europe, which represent 30% of ad spending. Together, these two regions account for nearly 80% of Nielsen-estimated global advertising budget and are driving the most annual growth in these investments. You’d expect this wide reach to result in consumers addicted to the new products that surround them. But interestingly enough, compared to the rest of the world, consumers in these two regions are the least open to trying new things.
