Charts

report

Creating the over 10,000 charts eMarketer publishes a year means assessing 75,000 to 100,000 data points—and vetting all of them for accuracy and sound methodology. Despite the sheer volume of constantly updated information we publish, eMarketer’s searchable and browsable database makes it quick and easy to find what you need.

Once you do find the perfect piece of information, eMarketer gives you the option of exporting it as a PDF, JPEG, Excel file or PowerPoint slide, making it easy to pass along or incorporate into a presentation.

Finally, of course, each eMarketer chart is labeled with clear source and methodology information, so you know exactly what you’re looking at.

Forecasts

eMarketer’s forecasts distill the collective predictions of the research world about the digital landscape. What makes the eMarketer perspective so reliable is that it’s supported by a transparent methodology, as well as robust comparisons to other estimates.

eMarketer bases all of our forecasts on a multipronged approach that focuses on both worldwide and local trends in the economy, technology and population along with company-, product-, country- and demographic-specific trends as well as trends in specific consumer behaviors. We analyze quantitative and qualitative data from a variety of research firms, government agencies, media outlets and company reports, weighting each piece of information based on methodology and soundness.

Additionally, every element of each eMarketer forecast fits within the larger matrix of all our forecasts, with the same assumptions and general framework used to project figures in a wide variety of areas. Regular re-evaluation of each forecast means those assumptions and framework are constantly updated to reflect new market developments and other trends.

eMarketer publishes forecasts on advertising spending, internet usage, mobile usage and ecommerce sales for countries in North America, Western Europe, Latin America, Asia-Pacific, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East and Africa. Advertising spending forecasts are published quarterly and usage forecasts are published twice a year.

Comparative Estimates

report

Due to the dynamism and volatility of digital media, it’s hard to trust any single forecaster or organization to get it right. That’s why eMarketer comparative estimates present many credible predictions—alongside eMarketer’s own view—so you understand where researchers agree, or disagree, about where specific markets are heading.

Interviews

eMarketer doesn’t just compare data points. It also compares viewpoints. We conduct and publish thousands of interviews with industry leaders. As with eMarketer’s other coverage, the goal is to find out what is really happening in the marketplace, whether there is a convergence or divergence of opinions and practices. Corporate clients don’t just get to look at the numbers, they get to hear about developments from the executives themselves.

Articles

eMarketer also publishes shorter pieces, often focused on highlighting a single trend or data set from a longer report. eMarketer corporate clients have access to all of eMarketer’s articles, along with the reports, charts and interviews they draw from.
