Digital spending for customer engagement continues to grow globally. In 2016, global marketers have been found to spend an average of 14.85% of their marketing budget on non-personal digital channels, which is expected to grow to 19% by 2018 as revealed in the study. Sanjay Virmani, EVP Indegene, stated that "China and the USA are leading in non-personal digital spending at 33% and 31%, respectively, spending over 20% annually. By 2018, 50% of marketers in China and 40% of marketers in the USA will spend more than 20%."

According to the study, Brand Promotional Emails, KOL Webinars, and HCP Portals are the top three preferred channels by the global marketers to engage HCPs. However, by 2018, KOL Webinars, Social Media, and Mobile Apps are expected to become the most preferred channels of engagement. "We expect to see a slight shift in prioritization of spending, with KOL Webinars becoming the first choice of engagement and Social Media and Mobile Apps receiving greater focus," added Virmani.
