The Rise of Mobile Ad Spending -- New PhoCusWright Research and Analysis

The Rise of Mobile Ad Spending -- New PhoCusWright Research and Analysis 
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/14 --  How has the rise in
mobile usage throughout the travel process shifted advertising spend?
By a lot -- but not as much as you might think, at least not yet.
According to a new report by travel industry research authority
PhoCusWright, "The U.S. Travel Advertising Marketplace: Industry
Sizing and Trends 2015" (, desktop
search is still the number one online ad spend category. However, its
share is slipping as mobile phones and tablets grow in influence
during the entire search-shop-buy process.  
"One in five ad dollars spent online in 2013 by travel advertisers
went towards mobile inventory: 11% to smartphones and 9% to tablets,"
according to PhoCusWright analyst Tom Powell. But there are
challenges to the mobile process that can inhibit further growth. "If
travel companies want to increase mobile share and ROI, they will
have to develop and release adequate mobile experiences across
browsers and apps for phones and tablets." 
This groundbreaking report explores the impact of mobile and other
new technologies on the travel advertising landscape. It also reveals
the size of the travel advertising market in the U.S. and examines
the trends, practices and budget allocations of U.S. travel industry
advertising spending from 2011 to 2015. 
The report examines: 

--  How various segments within the travel industry (airline, cruise, DMO,
    hotel, OTA and other) are allocating their advertising dollars
--  How much is spent on traditional offline channels (e.g., TV, print,
    out-of-home and radio) vs. online (e.g., search, video, social,
    referral, metasearch, display)
--  How mobile and the rise in digital ad spend will impact the
    advertising landscape over the next two years
--  Allocation by device, such as desktop, smartphone and tablet
--  Trends in general search, metasearch, social, online video, and more
--  How advertisers are dealing with the attribution dilemma
--  The role of Big Data and programmatic tactics
