eMarketer: Yahoo Poised to Pass Twitter in US Mobile Ad Share by 2015

Media giant takes advantage of mobile audience, but challenges remain

NEW YORK, NY (December 4, 2014) — Yahoo’s US mobile ad revenues are not only material now, they’re significant, according to a new forecast from eMarketer. Yahoo reported its mobile revenues for the first time in Q3 2014, and eMarketer estimates that the company will take nearly 3.2% of the $18.99 billion US mobile advertising market in 2014, launching itself into the mix as a competitor.

Next year, Yahoo’s US mobile ad revenues will account for 3.74% of the country’s mobile ad market, pushing past Twitter for the first time—which will take 3.69% share in 2015—according to eMarketer. By 2016, Yahoo’s share will near 4.2%, which still trails Google and Facebook by a wide margin. However, the company’s 1-percentage-point gain from 2014 through 2016 represents the largest among companies that we tracked for this latest forecast.
