Strategy Analytics attributes this increase to a major uplift in digital adspend by China this year, enabling the APAC region to overtake the USA.

The report also predicts that over the next five years the APAC digital market will be worth 33% more than the USA .

Moreover, it's not only China that’s helping cement APAC as the biggest digital market. The region constitutes half of the six biggest ad markets globally with China the second largest digital ad market, Japan fourth and Korea sixth.

Millions just can’t compete with billions.”
