"Mobile advertising to triple" in the next four years says Juniper Research

Published by at

Spending on mobile advertising is set to triple over the next four years, rising from $13 billion to $39 billion by 2018, says the latest industry report from Juniper Research. The majority of the increase in the spend will be concentrated on major networks such as Facebook and Twitter, rather than though third party mobile advertising services.

That doesn't mean that developers and publishers who rely on in-app advertising will be left out of the bonanza, there is a case to be made that the rising tide (of advertising money) will lift up everyone involved in this industry, but as more people move to mobile devices (including smartphones, but especially tablets) the general advertising spend is going to move from web and print towards the portable screens.

"As the mobile advertising industry matures, more sophisticated advertising solutions are being installed by leading players, with a clear trend towards utilising location-based advertising to drive greater relevance," writes Sian Rowland. "These new technologies and formats will benefit stakeholders across the mobile advertising value network."

The report is available via the Juniper Research website.
