Despite the challenges that print has faced in markets like the United States, the medium still provides strong reach in Latin America. Here’s why:

#1 Newspapers in Peru have grown in circulation by 50% over the past 4 years

This growth was reported by KPMG, which recently studied newspapers in Peru.

#2 Brazilian Newspapers Are Still Growing
According to the Instituto Verificador de Circulacao, Brazilian newspapers grew by 2.3% in circulation during the first 6 months of 2012 and 73% of Brazilians prefer to get their news from print media rather than online sources.

#3 Consumer magazine ad spend dropped in every region in 2009—EXCEPT in Latin America
PriceWaterhouseCooper reported these results in their Global Entertainment Media Outlook 2012-2016 study. Besides holding steady during challenging times, magazines in Latin America are projected to grow in ad spend over the next 4 years, projects PWC.
