Chart of the week: A quarter of global adspend goes to Google and Facebook

Global ad spend across all formats and platforms is expected to rise to US$98.3 billion in 2017. That's according to research company WARC's report "Global Ad Trends". Only this year, digital ad spend has overtaken TV as the biggest recipient of ad dollars. 

However, not all digital publishers are having a ball. A closer look at the figures explains why the champagne corks aren't popping all over the digital publishing world.

Most of the digital ad spend worldwide (61 per cent) is going to Google (44 per cent) and Facebook (18 per cent). Even if you count in ad revenue across all media, the digital duopoly still snaps up a quarter of all ad dollars spent this year. WARC's ad spend database covers 96 markets worldwide.
