US spending on linear TV ads will peak this year at $68.35 billion, up from $65.66 billion in 2021. This figure will not surpass $68 billion again for the next four years, with TV ad spend dropping to $64.94 billion in 2026 as its share of total media ad spend decreases as well.
On today's episode, we discuss the major contributors toward digital advertising's growth this year, what the ceiling is for mobile ad spending's share of the total ad market, and whether TV ad dollars are actually on a downward trajectory. We then talk about Gen Z's ad preferences and the prospects for Apple Podcasts' in-app subscriptions. Tune in to the discussion with eMarketer senior forecasting analyst at Insider Intelligence Peter Vahle.
