World Cup Helps Digital Ad Spending in Brazil Jump 28%

Investments in mobile internet ads will total $119.9 million this year

June 11, 2014 | Media Buying

Digital ad spending in Brazil will jump 28.0% this year, eMarketer estimates, at least in part due to boosted spending from the country’s summer hosting of the FIFA World Cup.

Digital Ad Spending in Brazil, 2012-2018 (billions and % change)

Total paid ad spending on digital media—including all formats served to desktop and mobile devices—will reach $2.88 billion in the country this year. The 2014 growth rate eMarketer predicts of 28.0% is nearly twice the expansion expected for next year, though 2016 will see a further bump due to the Olympic Games. By 2018, the end of eMarketer’s forecast period, advertisers in Brazil will spend nearly $5 billion on digital media.

Mobile Internet Ad Spending in Brazil, 2012-2018 (millions and % change)

Mobile still accounts for a tiny fraction of that spending in Brazil, with advertisers devoting just $119.9 million to mobile internet ads this year—including display and search ads, but excluding messaging-based advertising. This represents continued triple-digit growth for mobile ad spending in the country, but it will be several years before mobile is more than a drop in the digital bucket. By 2018, however, over $1 billion will go toward mobile internet ads—around 20% of total digital spending.
