Forecast Summary

Global digital advertising spend will increase from $407 billion in 2022 to $753 billion in 2026; representing growth of 85%. The report found that mobile in-app revenue will account for 56% of global spend by 2026. 
  • Whilst privacy changes from Apple and Google are restricting the potential for effective ad attribution, there are still major opportunities. The availability of the SKAdNetwork on iOS, for example, is a major opportunity for advertisers to access aggregated data; allowing them to target areas primed for growth, such as child-safe applications.
  • Total mobile in-app advertising spend will increase from $201 billion in 2022 to $425 billion in 2026, as brands strive to secure consumer trust. Enterprises must clearly outline their data collection, storage, and usage policies, in order to optimise opt-ins.
  • With recent data collection policy changes by technology giants creating further challenges for mobile attribution, enterprises must adopt a code of best practice to maximise return on advertising spend and support probabilistic attribution models.
  • Desktop advertising spend will increase from $97 billion in 2022 to $142 billion in 2026, despite a diversion of spend towards handheld devices and the implementation of data protection regulation impacting cookie policies.
  • Video is a key channel for advertisers, with video ad spend expected to grow by 63% over the next four years, as the success of popular distribution channels, such as TikTok and YouTube Shorts, continues to drive demand for video advertising and justify premium charges.
  • Therefore, marketers must ensure that video ads are optimised for smartphone and tablet consumption, in order to maximise return on investment.
