CEE ad spendings bouncing back after COVID

CEE ad spendings bouncing back after COVID


After a 2% drop in advertising spending, the Central and Eastern European markets have already surpassed their pre-COVID levels, reaching 9.5 billion Euros in 2021. The online segment is propelling the growth with a booming e-commerce, while numerous post-COVID consumer trends have formed throughout the region.

weCAN, the network of independent advertising agencies of Central and Eastern Europe recently published its 8th annual report called the CANnual Report. The report features the detailed analysis of advertising markets in 14 Central and Eastern European countries with focus on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in them. Besides compiling extensive data on the development of CEE’s media markets over the past year, weCAN experts provide with an overview of the most prominent topics in communications that shape advertising in the region. The report includes an article by guest author Dr. Árpád Rab, an expert of digital culture and a futurologist who describes from a historical viewpoint the impact of digital technologies on our lives, and how they will influence them in the next decade.


Bouncing back after the COVID-drop

Comparing to the economic performance of 2020, 2021 was a year of recovery: growing household consumption, rising wages and decreasing unemployment resulted in a 6% -GDP-growth on average. In the meantime, the political climate did not deteriorate: looking at the global score of the Democracy Index, it fell from 5.37 in 2020 to 5.28 in 2021, while the average score of the 14 CEE countries increased from 6.73 to 6.75.

Among these favorable conditions, the advertising industry bounced back from the losses it had suffered during the pandemic: after a 2% drop in 2020, the regional market reached the volume of net 9.5 billion Euros, with a 14% growth. The main engine of this momentum was the digital segment that recorded an 18% growth, now taking up more than half of the overall advertising spending.

Though spendings grew in all main segments, the average share of media types follows a long-standing trend. Besides the perpetual expansion of online media, on average, television is still in the lead – slowly losing its share from year to year however –, print is in a constant and visible incline, and the outdoor and radio segments are keeping their position.







E-commerce proved to be an equally successful segment: according to (2021), the percentage of internet users who bought goods online increased by 5%, and the growth-rate of B2C e-commerce turnover in Central and Eastern Europe was higher than in Western Europe (respectively 18%, 16% and 12%).




Post-COVID consumer trends

weCAN media experts list five of the most prominent consumer trends in their respective country chapters, and even though these appear in a great variety across the region, some major topics and trends are outlined in them.

Sustainability is number one within the new consumer behavior trends, ranging from no-packaging shops and pre-loved clothing to state-supported green home programs. A corresponding topic is nutrition: plant-based diet is gaining popularity along with organic goods and “free-from” foods are getting prominent as well. Particularly the lockdowns generated – or boosted – some of these consumer trends: e-commerce was discovered by older age-cohorts, and consumer expectations brought about Q-commerce: an abbreviation for quick commerce, meaning 10-15 minutes of delivery time. The pandemic accelerated the “digital nomad” trend, and in some cases, it can correspond to the increased demand for going rural, and the simple wish to be able to travel again re-popularized short-break destinations.


Looming recession

As seen from the regional spending figures, the CEE ad markets have already bounced back from the COVID-induced drop, however, with Russia’s war on Ukraine and the global energy crisis, the possibility of a serious recession is emerging.

The art of support: “I miss you, but I live here because there are opportunities”, Marta Nadolle

“Support artists who create the memory of the times we live in. Leave a good mark for future generations.” – these were our first thoughts when we got acquainted with the unusual project of building a collection of contemporary art at the Museum of Warsaw. We are very pleased to announce that we are joining the group of companies that will support the Museum of Warsaw Foundation in this important project.

Thanks to our donation, the Museum of Warsaw purchased Marta Nadolle’s painting “I miss you, but I live here because there are opportunities”.

The painting “I miss you, but I live here because there are opportunities” is a kind of self-portrait – it shows the artist talking to her friend after work (Nadolle is an art teacher).

The quote refers to the possibilities offered by living in Warsaw. The artist settled in the capital to finish her studies at the Painting Department of the Academy of Fine Arts. She comes from a small town in the West Pomeranian Voivodeship, and her move to the capital was initially associated with great longing and loneliness. Art was a way to channel emotions: working through everyday, sometimes painful, funny or surprising events in painting allowed her to tame her feelings and look at herself.

The artist treats her painting in a utilitarian way, small paintings are a kind of visual diary in which the artist works through more or less happy everyday life. Her works tell the story of a young woman’s life in Warsaw. Depending on the period in which they were created, they concern difficulties in establishing relationships, painful aspects of growing up or humorous events in the life of a painter.

Marta Nadolle (born 1989)

She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk and the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. In 2014, she obtained a diploma with honors in the painting studio of prof. Jarosław Modzelewski and the studio of Art in Public Space prof. Mirosław Duchowski. Her main medium is painting. He lives and works in Warsaw.

Selected individual exhibitions:

― I’ll send him nudes, Galeria Dobro, Olsztyn, 2021,

― Road to Happiness, Together Pamoja Foundation, Krakow, 2021,

― I’m not looking for adventures, LETO, Warsaw, 2019.

A unique CEE advertising market report

On the way to recovery


The years of solid growth was disrupted by COVID-19 in Central and Eastern European media markets, causing an 8% i.e. a 1.2-billion-Euro decline in 2020. Besides this setback in budgets, the pandemic accelerated digitalization throughout the region, making online the only segment that could grow during this crisis. In the meantime, the transformation of consumer behavior fundamentally changed the way businesses are expected to turn to their audience.


weCAN, the network of independent advertising agencies of Central and Eastern Europe recently published its 7th annual report called the CANnual Report. The report features the detailed analysis of advertising markets in 15 Central and Eastern European countries with focus on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in those markets. Besides compiling extensive data on the development of CEE’s media markets over the past year, weCAN experts draw parallel between the impacts of this recent pandemic-induced crisis and those of earlier critical situations throughout the region such as the economic crisis of 2008, the annexation of Crimea or the Agrokor crisis. The report includes an article by guest author Dr. Mária Törőcsik, an economist and professor at the University of Pécs, who describes the evolution of CEE consumers’ attitudes since 1990.


A region shaken by the virus


The CANnual Report 2021 reveals that the coronavirus stopped a half-decade-long steady growth: the overall ad spending of the region dropped by 8% in 2020, equaling a 1.2-billion-Euro loss compared to the previous year.




Many of the weCAN experts reported that after the initial shock and a freeze of advertising budgets, business had been relatively quickly back on track as campaigns had mostly been postponed not cancelled, or restructured by channeling more money into digital. Businesses had had to adapt to new consumer behavior patterns by moving to online platforms or strengthening their online presence, consequently, digital ad spending grew by 100 million Euros (or 1% YoY), making it the only media type that could have been able to do so in the middle of the crisis.


Thanks to these adjustments, more than half of the CEE-countries experienced just a minor setback or even a slight growth in advertising spending figures. The markets that suffered the least were the ones boasting a strong digital segment like most Visegrad countries, Russia and Ukraine. In Russia, with the most powerful digital market in CEE, figures dropped by 16% in Euro as the Ruble hit an almost five-year low-point. In Ruble, however, the decrease was only 4%.


The average share of the media types reflects that the long-standing trends were accelerated by the pandemic. Television is still the most popular channel (on average) in 15 countries, but looking at the overall ad spending it is notable that advertisers already spent more than half of their budgets online (51%, i.e. 7.12 billion Euros) in 2020, much more than on television (36%, i.e. 4.97 billion Euros). The print segment has been in a significant decline for years, but the pandemic situation ended the stability of outdoor and radio as well – both losing from their average share.


Contrasting state budgets of COVID-communication


The report features a comparison of 6 coutries regarding their government’s spending on “corona-communication” in 2020. These countries represent the vast differences among budgets allocated to informing citizens about security measures (such as curfews and obligations to wear masks), state measures and generally lifting people’s spirit.


The Hungarian Prime Minister’s Office spent altogether 79 million Euros (net) on advertising: more than 75% of it on COVID-related communication, which is a similar percentage to Romania’s. Serbia, Poland and Russia represent the average proportion spent on the fight against the coronavirus, while the CEE-country that proportionally invested the lowest amount in informing its citizens was Slovenia, spending less than 1% of its 10-million-Euro state budget on a sole pandemic-related television campaign.






Escaping forward


Although the COVID-19 pandemic caused a grave decrease in CEE’s ad spending, most weCAN experts agree that markets are recovering much quicker than they have done after the 2008 global crisis. Most of them expect pre-crisis levels of ad spending to be reached and even exceeded already in 2021, in many countries with an estimated YoY growth-rate as high as 10-15%.
