According to the data available on Statista.com, companies are expected to spend $226.01 billion on social media ads in 2022. Of this figure, 82% will be paid by companies on mobile social media, whereas the remaining 18% will account for desktop social media advertising.

The global average ad spending per user on mobile social media has become more than three-fold during the 2017-2021 period. In 2017, the average ad spending per user was $10.11 for mobiles. By 2021, this figure had increased to $30.57, indicating a 202% increase in the space of four years.

Advertising spending on mobile social media has consistently increased since 2017 and mainly shot up during the pandemic years. The rate of increase in ad spend per user is expected to slow down in the coming years, but nevertheless, ad spending will continue to grow at a substantiate rate.

During the ongoing year, the average ad spending per user is expected to increase by 19% to $36.37. In 2023, the rate is expected to increase further by 14.3% to $41.56.
