US digital ad spend growth will return to double digits next year at 11.2%, following this year’s 7.8%, according to our forecast. Growth certainly won’t go back to the 37.6% we saw in 2021, but it will increase steadily. Come 2025, US digital ad spend will pass $300 billion and keep climbing to nearly $400 billion by the end of 2027.

Beyond the chart: Most digital ad revenues will go to Alphabet ($78.86 billion), Meta ($51.35 billion), and Amazon ($33.96 billion). Traditional media ad spend, comprising TV, radio, out-of-home, and print, will shrink this year as marketers move more online than ever.
