Mobile display advertising is poised to increase fourfold over the next five years, according to a new forecast from ABI Research. The ABI study comes on the heels of a new Pew Research survey showing that mobile Internet use is climbing steeply among U.S. adults.
In the U.S., ABI predicts that the mobile display ad market will increase from $313 million in 2010 to $1.2 billion in 2015. That makes it one of the stronger growth areas for mobile ad revenues, along with text messaging, search advertising, ads within apps and both streaming and on-demand video.
