Market outlook of the global social networking market

Technavio’s research analyst predicts the global social networking market to grow at a CAGR of around 18% during the forecast period. Social media advertising has gained popularity over the past decade, mainly due to the active participation of social media users. Social media advertising offers a solid platform for advertisers to exhibit their brands/products, especially during global events, which are actively followed across the world.

One of the reasons for the growth of advertisement spending on social media and social networking service is the fact that social media acts as a platform that helps in directing search keywords toward the company’s website, leading to increased website traffic and brand popularity/visibility. Besides, social media allows brands to interact with people by offering an effective platform for communication, thereby leading to higher conversion rate and improved brand loyalty. 

Segmentation by device and analysis of the social networking market

  • Social network advertisement spending on desktop computers
  • Social network advertisement spending on mobile devices

Although desktop computers accounted for around 51% of the total social media advertisement spending during 2015, the market is expected to shift significantly toward advertisement spending on mobile devices during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the growing usage of smartphones and tablets. Mobile devices help in effectively targeting potential audience as most personal and professional interactions take place in these devices. Social media apps designed for mobile devices regularly track these interactions and further increase the relevance of advertisements. This will have a positive impact on the social networking market size.
