Television ad placement service prices have increased steadily in the three years to 2015 as a result of strong demand stemming from a boost in corporate profit and total advertising expenditure. For these reasons and to help procurement professionals make better buying decisions faster, business intelligence firm IBISWorld has updated a report on the procurement of Television Ad Placement Services in its growing collection of procurement category market research reports.

TV ad placement prices will continue upward in line with expanding corporate profit and advertising expenditure

Television ad placement services have a buyer power score of 3.3 out of 5, indicating that buyers have moderate leverage during negotiations but will also need to make some concessions. The primary factors influencing buyer power are high product specialization, high switching costs and a favorable price environment.

High product specialization stems from TV ad placement services' heavy dependence on intellectual labor. As a result, different suppliers often come up with different ideas as to how to best serve the buyer's needs, and solutions are frequently customized for each buyer. “High product specialization hurts buyer power because it reduces the selection of suppliers from which a buyer can choose,” says IBISWorld research analyst Kayley Freshman-Caffrey. “If a buyer favors a particular solution, the buyer will have little choice but to go with the supplier that offers it.”

Buyer power is also hampered by high switching costs, adds Freshman-Caffrey. Because TV ad placement services involve a close relationship between the buyer and supplier, ending a relationship with one supplier in order to switch to another can affect the provision of these services. Switching between suppliers can also involve a fee for terminating the contract early. Current vendors include Interpublic Group of Companies, Omnicom Group Inc., Publicis Groupe and WPP PLC.

This market's favorable pricing environment, on the other hand, benefits buyer power. In particular, the low volatility of TV ad placement service prices benefits buyers by allowing them to accurately predict prices and budget for the cost of services. Low price volatility also means buyers do not need to enter long-term contracts to lock in prices.
