According to the data, China's shift from traditional media to digital is no temporary trend. There is evidence that spending on TV and print for advertising purposes is declining. In 2016, TV spend will account for 24.2% of total media ad spending, or $18.92 billion, which represents less than half of spending on digital ads. eMarketer forecasting analyst Shelleen Shum explained, "This is driven by a growing share of young internet-savvy consumers who are spending more than the older generation. The slower economic growth has also caused advertisers to look more closely at ad budgets, with some preferring to spend more on targeted digital formats."
