Geographic Reach

In addition to the fast-growing market of China, the company is looking to expand into India; it plans to either open additional offices in the country or use it as an outsourcing post to serve other parts of the company. Overall Publicis sees Brazil, China, India, Mexico, Russia, and Turkey as emerging markets ripe for growth.


As the digital arena continues to reign supreme in the advertising industry, Publicis uses acquisitions to strengthen its position in this key strategic area. In early 2015, Publicis completed a huge deal when it bought Sapient , a consulting, software development, and digital marketing firm based in Boston, for $3.7 billion. The deal allowed Publicis to form a new digital network called "Publicis.Sapient" and specifically enhanced its position in India. Sapient is divided into three groups: marketing services firm SapientNitro, Sapient Global Markets, and Sapient Government Services.
