TAM Sports reports rise in categories and advertisers for first 31 matches of IPL 2024

IPL 2024 witnessed a remarkable 59% growth in the number of advertised categories and a 38% rise in individual advertisers.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 continues to be a juggernaut for advertisers. TAM Sports, a leading media research agency, revealed a substantial increase in advertising during the initial 31 games of the season.

Compared to the 2023 season, the IPL witnessed a remarkable 59% growth in the number of advertised categories, reflecting the expanding appeal of the league to a wider range of businesses. This diversification is evident in the 38% rise in individual advertisers, highlighting the growing competition for audience attention during the IPL.

The data further indicates a 9% increase in ad volumes per channel compared to the previous season. This growth is accompanied by a rise in the number of brands advertising during the tournament. Over 65 brands leveraged the IPL platform to reach viewers during the first 31 matches alone, surpassing the 45+ brands seen in the same period of IPL 2023.

The report also sheds light on the top-performing advertising category. Ecom-Gaming, encompassing both e-commerce and gaming companies, emerged as the leader, capturing a significant 18% share of the total ad volume.

Looking at individual advertisers, Sporta Technologies (Dream11) held the top spot for 16 matches during IPL 17, while Parle Products emerged as the leader for 15 matches. Interestingly, the top advertisers collectively accounted for 37% of advertising volumes in IPL 17.
