Television remains the dominant mass medium in the US, and TV ad spending is usually the biggest line item in consumer marketers' budgets. Spending has been down lately, primarily due to the recession rather than marketing mix shifts. As the economy recovers, Forrester forecasts that TV spending will see a modest recovery in 2010, growing 1% to $69.5 billion. Longer-term, cable TV will recognize the benefits of advanced TV advertising technologies like addressability and interactivity first and will drive the five-year forecast to approach a 4% CAGR.
