  27. 27. © Deloitte LLP and affiliated entities.Dubai: We are stepping into a world where smartphones and tablets outsell PCs. Whileregional advertisers are aware that the industry is going ‘mobile’, spend on digital advertisingis still low, according to a recent report by global consulting firm Deloitte.“Digital advertising spend in the Middle East represents approximately eight per centof the total advertising spend [this year],” said Emmanuel Durou, Deloitte’s director ofstrategy consulting.The report, entitled ‘Middle East Technology, Media and TelecommunicationsPredictions 2013’, shows that digital advertising in the region accounted for 6 per centof the total advertising spend last year. This creates a disparity between digital ad spendand the consumption of mobile devices, considering that the Middle East made up 6 per centof global smartphone shipments last year, but has less than 0.1 per cent of mobileadvertising.In addition, the gap between digital and television advertising spend in the region is stillglaringly large, with the latter accounting for 40 to 41 per cent of total advertising spend, saidDurou.The region has many opportunities for mobile advertising, a term that considers smartphonesand tablets. The UAE, for instance, has a strong telecoms infrastructure, with two majortelecom service providers, a high smartphone penetration, as well as a predominantly youngpopulation with a big appetite for smartphones and tablets.The tablet market in the Middle East and Africa was up 90 per cent year on year, closing with1.36 million units in the fourth quarter of last year, stated the report.Grégory Bolle
  28. 28. © Deloitte LLP and affiliated entities.The demand for tablets was fuelled by low-cost options and the Millenials’ (the populationbelow 25) engagement with social network sites and online videos on these devices, amongother factors.There are a number of factors that hamper the creation of digital content on mobile devices.One factor is the ownership structure of brands. Licensees that manage a number ofinternational brands are less likely to engage creatively with customers throughadvertising. Instead they “focus on sales and volumes,” said Gregory Bolle, BPG IBates’ Head of Strategic PlanningAnother challenge is the late arrival of some of the regional brands to digital platforms.Some brands “have only three or four years of online existence,” Bolle said.Meanwhile, advertisers in the region are still reliant on push strategies to communicate theirbrands to consumers. One way they can achieve that is through direct messaging or SMS,Bolle said.Companies in the UAE allocate their advertising budget on display ads, such as banners onwebsites, which make up 60 per cent. The rest of the budget is spent on direct messaging orSMS, which accounts for 30 per cent, and search 20 per cent.Digital advertising spend in the region is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rateof 35 per cent and make up 10 per cent of the total advertising spend by 2015, according tothe report.Grégory Bolle

  30. 30. © Deloitte LLP and affiliated entities.The Telecoms Media and Technology Predictions 2013 report states that mobile advertisingspend will reach $8.3 billion this year globally, with $4.9bn geared towards smartphones and$3.4bn on tablets.Digital advertising in the region accounted for about 6 per cent of total advertising spendacross the Middle East, a figure that is "extremely low, not just from a benchmark point ofview when compared to the UK at 32 per cent but from a logical point of view as well", saidEmmanuel Durou, the director of strategy consulting at Deloitte.The Middle East accounted for 6 per cent of global smartphone shipment last year, butless than 0.1 per cent of mobile advertising is coming to the Middle East, according tothe report.In the UAE there are 3 million users of digital apps and 3.6 million internet users, yet mobileadvertising revenues are just $7 million while internet advertising revenues are $280m. In theUnited States, where they have 220 million app users and 245 million internet users, mobileadvertising revenues are $3.4bn according to Deloitte."Mobile advertising spend was $8m last year and this year we see it growing to $15m," saidElie Khouri, the chief executive of Mena at Omnicom Media Group."This will grow in the foreseeable future, but it is still well below the level it should be at.Monetising mobile is not just a local or regional issue, it is a global issue with even the likes ofFacebook and Twitter facing problems.“In the Middle East, people spend on average two hours a day on the internet and three hourson TV, but the gap between digital and TV advertising spend is substantial with more than 40per cent of advertising budgets spent on television.

  31. 31. © Deloitte LLP and affiliated entities."The digital era started late in Mena," said Gregory Bolle, the strategic planning head at BPGGroup. "For some brands they have only just 3 or 4 years of online existence. In 2008we just started exploring internet and digital opportunities with most of the localbrands.“According to Bolle, there are three critical phases for digital advertising. The first is a robusttelecoms infrastructure and high laptop, Smartphone &tablet penetration rates. The second ishigh quality local content and the third is e-commerce."We are only just entering phase two in the region," said Gregory Bolle. "We are not late, it isjust that the traditional channels [TV and print] are still doing very well in the region, also themindset is different from the US and Europe.“Advertisers in the region are still relying on push strategies when it comes to digitaladvertising instead of pulling customers into their brands.Generally most companies in the UAE allocate 15 per cent of their advertising budgeton digital of which 12-13 per cent goes towards internet advertising and 2-3 per cent onmobile and tablet. About 60 per cent of this is spent on displays like banners on websites, 30per cent on direct messaging, like SMS and 20 per cent on search. Globally, however, searchaccounts for 62 per cent of digital advertising budgets, 10 per cent on direct messaging and28 per cent on display."Mobile advertising is a huge opportunity that is still untapped said Durou.Grégory Bolle
