Mind Commerce estimates that global spending on mobile advertising and marketing initiatives will reach nearly $37.5 billion in 2012, a near 15% compounded annual growth rate since 2008. The Asia-Pacific region is leading the mobile charge and will chalk up an estimated budget of $15.8 billion in 2012. In comparison, Europe's spending on mobile advertising in 2012 will be about half as much ($7.9 billion) while North America's spending for 2012 will be $11.2 billion.
Smartphones and tablets are playing an increasingly important role in driving mobile ad spending, with mobile searching and mapping the strongest earners. Video and audio mobile ads, meanwhile, are the fastest-growing ad segments, with momentum seen continuing through 2015.
Mobile advertising networks are delivering 350 billion global impressions in 2011, generating $800 million in media spend, and earning $275 million in net platform and media services-related revenue. The U.S. market generated 50% of gross media spend, Europe 25% and Asia 25%, based on analysis of each network's billed impressions by geography.
Mobile search, especially localized search, will be the dominant activity for marketers to engage consumers with branded communications but they should not ignore the potential of downloadable applications, streaming video, and, most certainly, mobile messaging.
Mobile advertising and marketing industry to grow by a modest 6.1% CAGR between 2012 and 2016 to reach more than $47 billion. Although there is little doubt that spending on mobile data services is huge, parts of Europe are still far behind many other global markets likely due to the strong landline system and slower migration of consumers to mobile.
Mind Commerce estimates the world market for mobile marketing and advertising revenues will reach nearly $54 billion by 2020, up from about $29 billion today, growing at an 8-year CAGR rate of nearly 5%. Spending will grow at the fastest rates by 2020 in countries outside of the core territories of North America and Asia, most likely Australia and South America, where cellular service will finally reach parity with the rest of the world.
