The spread of mobile devices and rapid mobile data networks has transformed global media consumption in recent years. 24% of all media consumption across the world will be mobile this year, up from just 5% in 2011, according to Zenith’s Media Consumption Forecasts 2018, published today. By 2020 we expect this proportion to reach 28% as the mobile internet takes share from almost all other media.
