This is a far greater increase on previous predictions, and shows that mobile cannot be underestimated. Additionally, forecasters predict that worldwide mobile media spend will top £100 billion by 2018, when mobile will account for over 60% of the total digital media spend worldwide.

According to the research, £8 billion of the £16.1 billion of the total UK media spend is to be allocated to digital. At over 50%, this shows that the UK remains the worldwide digital leader, compared to the US (31%), China (42%) and Germany (24%).
In brief, mobile media spend is set to increase significantly in 2015, while the UK continues to draw a digital shadow over other advertising markets.
