Online advertising finds applications in social media, E-Commerce, displays, and other media. Now, mobile contains each of the mentioned segments in one single unit, and hence, the target customers prefer to use mobile instead of other sources to access the Internet. Henceforth, the online advertising market will observe the application CAGR in mobile to be an outstanding 50-55%. Active companies in the markets this week include Versus Systems Inc.

The ARC report continued: "According to the Pew Research Center, 53% of the prospective customers across the globe use social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and others. Furthermore, the number of people on social media is only going to increase in the coming years. Now, these people spend a substantial fraction of their time on social networks which creates a wide spectrum of customer base with different choices and perceptions. This happens to be a major online advertising marketplace for the advertising agencies as the agencies get to target millions of people with prospects of buying a diverse range of products of different brands. The major challenge in the online advertising market is that the customers are blocking ads on various social media platforms and search engines. Furthermore, these platforms come up with a new algorithm on a regular basis, which makes it a bit difficult for the agencies to realign their marketing strategies in inclination with the changes made on the platform. Additionally, the growth prospects in the market are creating overwhelming competition in the niche."
