In 2014, Google will take 31.5% of the $140.2 billion global advertising market, down from 31.9% in 2013 – from eMarketer

by on June 25, 2014

Google's worldwide share of digital advertising revenues is slipping, but the company remains by far the most dominant company in the global market, according to eMarketer. In 2014, Google will take 31.5% of the $140.2 billion global advertising market, down from 31.9% in 2013, eMarketer estimates. By comparison, Facebook's share is expected to rise to 7.8% this year from 5.8% in 2013, while @eMarketer projects that Yahoo's will drop from 2.86% share in 2013 to 2.52% this year.

The story is the same in terms of mobile advertising. Though Google's share of the worldwide mobile ad market will drop this year, it will only fall 0.2% from 50.4% to 50.2%, according to eMarketer. However, Facebook is gaining ground much more rapidly in mobile -- and maintains a much larger share -- expected to grow from 17.8% in 2013 to 22.3% in 2014. The global mobile ad market will reach $32.71 billion in 2014, eMarketer estimates. [more…]
