6 January 2022, Dubai, UAE: Kantar, the world’s leading data-driven analytics and brand consulting company reveals the trends and recalibrations at play in the global media industry and its expert predictions for this year.

Keerat Dhillon, Associate Director & Media Effectiveness Measurement Lead, MENA, for Kantar’s Insights Division comments: “The media landscape has always been dynamic, with the pandemic further fueling all the change. Digital consumption increased massively, and while some newer players grew exponentially during this time, advertisers still need to think very strategically about how to steer and operate in this changing landscape. Content and context are now king, so the key is to minimise intrusion while maximising relevance for consumers. With clear evidence of the power of multi-media campaigns, customising your creatives to each context and amplifying the campaign’s coverage is key to driving maximum impact in the Middle East.”

Content owners and producers will command higher licensing and carriage fee negotiation rights than before. Streaming platforms for sport and e-sports will gain more traction with fans. Platform consolidation will continue, driven by the need to offer more (and better) content bundles to lure new viewers in a crowded marketplace. Sole subscription offerings will become scarce. The volume of deals will accelerate on 2021 levels as platforms, operating in increasingly overlapping ecosystems, will continue to merge and form partnerships.

Brands will lean into their direct consumer relationships to make the most of and experiment with their owned ‘first-party’ data. Brands will enrich behavioural planning with attitudinal overlays and refinements, and develop new methodologies to overcome the lack of competitive intelligence; all with the aim of developing the most rounded view of consumers.

Commenting on the predictions, Francois Nicolon, CMO, Media Division, Kantar, said: “2022 will see a refocusing of attention in the industry following a year of growth and agility in the face of the pandemic.

With some pretty seismic changes afoot in terms of cookie deprecation and consumers’ attitudes and new habits, the industry will have to adapt and learn to find new strategies for success. Whether that’s through investing in more content to lure viewers in a crowded marketplace, rethinking commercial models or experimenting with new approaches to better use data, adaptability and the ability to test and learn will be key.”
