eMarketer, which aggregates and analyzes data from over 2,000 sources, reports that the auto industry-the largest advertiser in the world-spent 2.5% of its advertising budget online in 2005 (excluding search). In comparison, the top 13 pharmaceutical advertisers in the US spent only about 1.2% of their ad budgets online according to Advertising Age.
