Answering a question using data: Are marketers around the globe shifting their dollars to digital ads?

YoY growth - Digital Ad Spends vs Traditional Ad Spend
Standard

According to the data shared by emarketer, we can clearly see that the Traditional Ad market is reaching a saturation state in 5 major economies (US, China, UK, Japan, Germany) while the digital ad market will see steady growth in some economies & explosive growth in US & China…but the market size of traditional ads will still certainly remain much bigger in US while market size of digital ads in china will overtake the traditional ads in 2017.

So to answer the question: Marketers are not decreasing their existing budgets for traditional ad channels but the increased marketing budget dollars seems to be directed to digital ads market.

Very interesting data-set, I encourage you to play with it!
