US retail digital ad spend growth will outpace overall digital ad spend growth in 2024

For more insights and key statistics on the biggest trends in today’s most disruptive industries, subscribe to our Chart of the Day newsletter.

Key stat: US retail digital ad spend will grow 14.2% next year to reach $84.00 billion, or 28.6% of total digital ad spend, per our forecast.

Beyond the chart:

  • This growth is above our forecast for overall US digital ad spend growth at 11.2%.
  • Though retail spending on video ads will grow 19.5% next year, retail’s share of display dollars spend on video trails the other industries we track, per our forecast. That’s because search ads are still the bread and butter of retail advertising.
  • The apparel and accessories category will increase its share of retail ad spend over the next few years, while other sectors will reel in their spending, according to our US Retail Industry Digital Ad Spending 2023 report.
