Palm Beach, FL – January 21, 2022 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – Thanks to rising internet penetration rates and the ever-expanding popularity of digital platforms around the world, digital advertising has grown to become one of the most important forms of advertising. A report from Statista projects that Nearly 356 billion U.S. dollars were spent on digital advertising in 2020. This figure is forecast to increase at a rapid pace in the upcoming years. According to the latest projections, digital advertising revenue will amount to 460 billion U.S. dollars by 2024. The Statista report said: “The United States is the largest digital advertising market in the world, as the country had the highest revenue in the digital advertising market in 2020 – an estimated 137 billion U.S. dollars. About four out of ten dollars invested in ads in the country were devoted to digital advertising. Digital advertising spending in the U.S. is projected to grow in the next few years, as sources expect the total spending on digital advertising to reach nearly 153 billion U.S. dollars by 2024. In terms of industries, the retail industry invests the most on digital advertising in the country. As of 2019, this particular industry accounted for 22 percent of all digital advertising spending in the U.S. The automotive and the financial services industries held about 12 percent of the share, respectively.” Active companies in the markets today include: Mobiquity Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOBQ), The Trade Desk (NASDAQ: TTD), Magnite (NASDAQ: MGNI), Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), Roku, Inc. (NASDAQ: ROKU).
The Statista report continued: “Search advertising is the most profitable and most promising digital ad format in the U.S., accounting for the majority of all digital advertising revenue generated in the country. Considering that search advertising is one of the major revenue streams for digital advertisers, it is no surprise that Google, the leading search engine in the world, has by far the highest net digital advertising revenue amongst online companies in the U.S., with healthy growth projections for the future. While Google generated about 147 billion U.S. dollars in revenue through its digital advertising channels, Facebook’s digital revenue stood at 84 billion U.S. dollars. Nonetheless, Facebook leads the display advertising market in the United States, leaving Google and other competitors behind.”

In other news and developments of note in the markets this week:
Roku, Inc. (NASDAQ: ROKU) recently announced “DOOMLANDS” will premiere on The Roku Channel on January 28. From the irreverent mind of Josh O’Keefe, “DOOMLANDS” is Roku’s first adult animated series. The show started as creator Josh O’Keefe’s university film project turned crowd-funded pilot and was later developed by Josh Bowen and Look Mom! Productions. The series looks at the life of the infamous Danny Doom and aspiring bartender, Lhandi, as they sling beers across a hellish wasteland in their mobile pub: The Oasis. Facing ruthless desert gangs, memory-stealing creeps, and even mean bathroom graffiti, all this crew’s got to do to survive is not kill each other. The series will be available exclusively for free on The Roku Channel in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K.
“‘DOOMLANDS is a post-apocalyptic animated comedy soaked in dust, beer and blood. It’s an homage to Ozploitation and Sci-Fi cinema, and after many years in development, I’m so stoked for it to debut on The Roku Channel,” said creator Josh O’Keefe.
