eMarketer: Mobile Growth Pushes Facebook to Become No. 2 US Ad Seller

Mobile now accounts for more than 22% of all US digital ad spending, compared with less than 3% in 2010

NEW YORK, NY (December 19, 2013)—US mobile ad spending is expected to near $9.6 billion in 2013 and account for a whopping 22.5% of all digital ad investments, according to new figures from eMarketer.

The channel’s incredible growth—considering mobile represented just 11.9% of digital ad spending in 2012 and less than 3% of digital budgets in 2010—comes largely as consumers shift time spent from desktop to mobile devices, which has caused a significant redistribution of revenues for some of the world’s largest ad platforms. Facebook and Google are both major drivers and recipients of this growing market, domestically and internationally.
