Mobile and social are fuelling massive digital-video advertising growth as dollars shift away from display ads

Video is emerging as one of the top digital advertising formats on desktop and mobile.

Mobile will be the biggest driver of digital-video ad spend over the next few years. Advertisers are rushing to snap up video ad spots as video viewership increases on mobile devices. Mobile video ad revenue will grow more than 3x faster than desktop through 2020.

Total revenue will reach $US13.3 billion by year-end 2020, according to BI Intelligence estimates based on historical data from the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB).
