Mobile ads to overtake newspaper ads in 2014

UK mobile advertising spend is forecast to top £2bn and overtake newspaper ad revenue for the first time in 2014, according to new research.

Total digital media advertising spend is predicted to increase from £6.3bn in 2013 (44.3% market share) to £7.1bn this year (47.5% market share), according to the latest forecast from eMarketer published on Monday.

The estimated figures reveal that advertising in newspapers (national and regional) will fall from £2.2bn in 2013 (15.3% market share of media) to £2.1bn in 2014 (13.8% market share), marking the steepest drop in market share across all media categories between 2013 and 2014.
