Digital audio and video ad spending increased more than 50% last year


Digital audio and video spending both increased by more than 50% last year. Social media advertising and search revenue also saw substantial increases, according to full findings from last year’s digital spend released by the IAB and PwC. Marketers are all-in with digital video channels like CTV, as well as emerging platforms like TikTok.

The numbers from “IAB Internet Advertising Revenue Report: Full Year 2021” show promising revenues in these spaces, even though measure and identity resolution challengers are still being worked out in many of these ad ecosystems.

The big takeaways:

  • Digital video is up 50.8% compared to last year, with total revenues of $39.5B; 
  • Digital audio captured the highest year-over-year growth, up 57.9% to $4.9B;
  • Social media advertising was up 39.3% to $57.7 billion and
  • Search revenue grew substantially (32.8%) in 2021, but it led to a slight decrease in total revenue share (reduction of 0.8 percentage points).

Why we care. Last year proved that many of the habits formed during the pandemic are here to stay. Work-from-home and a more flexible schedule for many has made audio an important channel with staying power.

Digital video is getting more diverse as streaming subscribers look for other ways to consume programming, including free ad-supported content, while more watchers continue to cut the cord.
