eMarketer's philosophy is that research should be easy to use and convenient to access. That's why all of our topics are delivered to customers in a variety of formats, depending on how much time they have and how much depth they need.
Each eMarketer report is the result of the combined efforts of our researchers, chart specialists, interviewers, analysts and editors. Concise and readable, reports provide an in-depth understanding of specific markets and trends, offering unique analysis based on the eMarketer method of looking at all available information. In short, they take the vast amount of data eMarketer assesses and publishes daily, and put that data into context for our clients. Each report has five distinct sections: the executive summary, the eMarketer view, findings, conclusions and sources.
In the executive summary, the key questions addressed in the report are laid out along with relevant background information.
The eMarketer view gives you eMarketer’s take on what the crucial developments are, which way the marketplace is headed, and what you should be watching most closely.
The bulk of the report consists of eMarketer’s findings, which weave together third-party data with interviews, analysis and eMarketer forecasts to show you everything that is happening. The report’s key takeaways are highlighted in the conclusions section.
eMarketer’s signature charts offer a quick, clear view of the latest data—both eMarketer forecasts and the latest numbers from the thousands of other sources eMarketer evaluates.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Join our analysts for dynamic presentations on the digital marketing topics that matter most to your business. After the webinar, their PowerPoint decks and audio commentary remain available for easy viewing anytime.
