  • 3. 1 IAPI conducted a more limited industry census in 2007. 2 Some agencies responded as a group • Core Media completed on behalf of Clear Blue Water, Mediavest, Radical, Starcom and Mediaworks • Ogilvy completed on behalf of Ogilvy and Y&R • Aegis completed on behalf of Brindley, Vizeum and Carat Ireland 3 Since the research concluded, five new agencies joined IAPI.

Introduction Amárach Research, in partnership with IAPI, hosted a survey for all member companies of IAPI, to establish useful industry information and to aid management in each member company. This is the first time the industry has ever produced such a detailed census and yielded a wealth of data for us to learn from.1 An overall response rate of 88% was achieved for the survey. From a total number of 43 member agencies in IAPI, there were 30 completed surveys received, representing a total of 37 agencies.2 Each survey was conducted using an online methodology and the fieldwork was carried out between May and June of 2013. It was completed by either the Managing Director or the Financial Director of each agency. IAPI members (as of May 2013)3 IAPI Industry Census 20132
  • 4. The census paints a picture of an industry in transition and under financial pressure, yet optimistic about the future. 1,281 people were directly employed by IAPI member agencies in 2012. Amazingly this is exactly the same number of people employed in IAPI member agencies in 2007. This indicates more stability than we expected. While some mergers and closures have taken place since the downturn,4 it demonstrates that staff reduction hasn’t been quite as bad as we feared. There is a visible difference between the numbers of people employed in creative agencies: 787 people in total, compared to 494 people in media agencies. When compared to 2007, we found a decrease in creative agency staff numbers by 20% and a growth in media agencies by 69%. This would support the impression of significant growth on the media agency side. The number of full time jobs in the industry is high compared to part time/freelance positions. Two hundred and thirty people were hired in 2012. A third of all agencies expect staff levels to increase in 2013 indicating a confidence that the industry is expanding. The industry attracts those with high levels of education; 66% had a degree or higher; 18.3% had a postgrad qualification. The average age for employees in the industry is 35. The average age in the 2007 IAPI industry census was 34. This is in line with the client side where 42% of clients are aged 30 – 39 years old.5 4 There are less IAPI member agencies: 48 in 2007 compared to 43 in 2013. 5 Marketing Institute of Ireland, Salary and Market Trend Report 2012-13. Key Findings Numbers employed Growth Age breakdown IAPI Industry Census 20133
  • 5. Women in the industry – breakdown by gender Confidence in the sector for the year ahead • Women make up 51% the workforce, men 49%. The reverse is the case for UK agencies: 51% men and 49% women.6 • Women make up 13% of the total at Chairperson/CEO/Managing Partner level. It was only 9% in 2007. Irish advertising agencies lag behind our UK counterpart where women represent 22% at this level. • There’s a slight disparity between media and creative agencies. Creative agencies have 17% women at Chairperson/CEO/Managing Partner level, compared to 10% in media agencies. Some parts of the industry are dominated by women • Project management: 80% women, 20% men. • Account management: 70% women, 30% men. Others are dominated by men • Creative areas (copywriters, arts directors, digital and design) 67% are men, 33% women. • It’s even more pronounced in digital with some areas up to 90% male. • 20% of those surveyed estimated turnover for the industry as a whole will increase. • 33% of those surveyed estimated turnover for the industry as a whole will remain the same. • 47% of those surveyed estimated turnover for the industry as a whole would decrease. By contrast agencies were more bullish about their own agency’s prospects • 60% of those surveyed forecast growth for their agency in 2013. • 33% of those surveyed predicted it would remain the same. The apparent ‘disconnect’ between confidence in the industry vs. confidence in individual agency prospects is quite common. Historical data from different business sectors suggests that business owners and managers are likely to be more optimistic about their own business, whilst being less positive about the outlook for the industry as whole. 6 IPA Industry Census 2012. IAPI Industry Census 20134
  • 6. The Market Environment Agencies are really feeling the pressure on cost and time. 41% of clients use procurement departments to agree fees. Therefore it’s not surprising that the role of procurement in agency selection ranks third in terms of factors that pre-occupy agencies in 2013. Only time pressure and cost pressure supersede it. Amárach completed a short statistical analysis of the findings from sentiment questions in order to explore the drivers of agency growth – and barriers – identified in the research. Using correlation analysis it identified the following key (statistically significant) relationships between performance, perceptions and expectations. • There is a strong, positive correlation between the agency growth outlook and hiring plans, one of the strongest in the data in fact. • Globalisation is strongly correlated with time pressures, and with the shift of decision making abroad. • The role of procurement in agency selection is negatively correlated with industry growth outlook and agency growth outlook, but positively correlated with the influence of management consultants. Our survey and analysis point to a time of dynamic change in the world of marketing and communication agencies. The balance of opportunities and threats broadly favours a positive outlook at the individual agency level, if not at the aggregate industry level.
