eMarketer: Mobile Ad Spending to Top $100 Billion Worldwide in 2016
The worldwide mobile
advertising market will hit two significant milestones in 2016, according to
new figures from eMarketer, surpassing $100 billion and accounting for more
than 50% of all digital ads for the first time.
The $101.37 billion to be spent on ads served to mobile phones and tablets worldwide next year represents a more than 400% increase from 2013. Between 2016 and 2019, the last year in our forecast, mobile ads will nearly double again, totaling $195.55 billion. That figure will account for 70.1% of all digital advertising as well as more than one-quarter of total media ad spending worldwide.
