I've been searching furiously and the closest I came across was this for the Europe http://marketing-advertising-the-media.europages.co.uk/business-directory-europe/did-22/Marketing-Advertising-the-Media.html and some 20 years old statistics from https://explore.data.gov/

Does anyone know if there's such database?

    People will be better able to answer your question if you list specific statistics you are looking for. It also helps to write your question as a complete thought instead of continuing it from the headline. Aug 14, 2013 at 16:16
  • Just how many agencies there are, nothing more, even though number of their employees have would be nice as well.

  • You can actually edit the question to add that information. The more clear your question is, the more likely someone will be to answer it. Aug 15, 2013 at 14:53

Gut feel, you will have to dig this data up country by country.

This list should be fairly up to date for the UK. http://www.ipa.co.uk/framework/sections/agency/agencies.aspx?display=list&menu=open (something like import.io or scraperwiki will help you turn the page into data - I don't think they have an API)

I found this http://eaca.adforum.com/search/agency/idCountry/783 which has a variety of search options for agencies. Again, it is a site not a db. So you would have to use a scraper of some variety. There is still no guarantee of accuracy or completeness.
