"Around 50 per cent of the overall advertising spend was on digital followed by e-commerce, telecom, technology and banking, financial services and insurance companies," it added.
The increase in smartphones and tablets is helping advertisers reach a wider audience, it said, adding that digital advertisements are flexible and can be adapted to any kind of device like television, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
"The two-way interactive capability and the ability to customise the ad for target audience also make digital advertisements more effective," the survey noted.
Stating that more than 235 million people in India access Internet through mobile devices, the survey said the mobile applications are helping in reaching out to more customers even in remote and rural areas.
