The shift to digital media for U.S. advertising expenditures is expected to continue well into the future. By 2018, ad spending on digital media will exceed that for television. Mobile ad spending is projected to rise from 2.6 percent of all U.S. media dollars in 2012 to 26.4 percent in 2018.
As eMarketer reports:
“Strong, steady growth in mobile advertising will push digital ads to represent nearly 30% of all U.S. ad spending this year. Advertisers will invest more than $50 billion in digital channels in 2014 for the first time, an increase of 17.7% over 2013. Just over one-third of that will come from mobile, but by 2018, mobile will account for more than 70% of digital ad spending.”
