Mark Fratrik, senior vp/chief economist of BIA/Kelsey writes:
“One of the key drivers in this growth is the growth in mobile advertising. While local advertisers will grow in importance, national advertisers will still account for 70% of all mobile advertising in 2018, resulting in over $11 billion in advertising spending.”
He adds: “Pure online advertising will also see growth coming from national advertisers, resulting in $20.8 billion being spent in 2018.”
