Mobile spend in the UK is expected to increase by 90% this year reaching an estimated £2.26bn, overtaking the ad investment placed in print display such as newspapers and magazines. According to forecasts by research group eMarketer, the continuing shift in media budgets towards smartphones and tablets, as well as the constant decline in print media explains the trend. eMarketer’s report estimates that mobile will account for 15.1% of total media spend this year, while newspaper spend is predicted to drop 5% to 13.8%.
