On March 4, 2019 we launch the 3rd wave of IAB’s Audio Advertising: State of the Nation Report, providing a snapshot of Australia’s audio landscape across broadcast radio, podcasting and digital streaming. It covers buying methods, satisfaction and experience of those involved in buying and planning audio campaigns in Australia.

The headline finding for the report was 87% of agencies used streaming audio advertising in 2018 and that brand advertisers embraced podcast advertising in 2018 in Australia. Additionally, the report found that there is a strong appetite in market to try dynamic audio creative development to make the most of the data and targeting capability of streaming and programmatic audio and provide more relevant and better ad experiences for consumers.   The industry’s understanding of voice marketing was also found to be improving, though the report found that it’s still currently at a low level of adoption.
