Insights from D&B Hoovers

Industry Overview

Description

Companies in this industry design and implement public relations campaigns; some also offer lobbying and political consulting services. Major companies include divisions of global advertising and marketing giants such as IPG, Publicis, Omnicom, and WPP, as well as independent firms such as Blue Focus (China), Havas PR (France), and Edelman (US).

Competitive Landscape

Demand is driven primarily by the health of the US economy and corporate profits. The profitability of individual companies depends on the value of the creative services delivered and efficient use of personnel. Large companies have advantages in having multiple subsidiaries that offer different marketing services to large customers and some economies of scale in marketing.
