Are things about to get even tougher for premium publishers?

 

For the first time, the strength of the Google-Facebook duopoly is reducing the pool of ad money available to other online media owners, according to a new WARC report.

 

The latest WARC Global Ad Trends focuses on the duopoly and says that of the $590.4bn spent on advertising worldwide last year, $144.6bn (24.5%) went to Google and Facebook, which equates to almost one in four dollars.  The duopoly’s adspend share is up from 20.3% in 2017 and is more than double the 10.8% recorded in 2014. WARC predicts a further increase to 28.6% ($176.4bn) this year.

 

Looking only at the internet advertising market, the duopoly took over half (56.4%) of ad money in 2018, a share which WARC expects to rise to 61.4% this year.

 

This growth is squeezing other online media owners, as the pool of ad money available to them is now in decline for the first time, down 0.7% to $111.0bn.
