Regarding the investments in mobile, it is the sector with the highest growth rate, growing from 27% to 39.8% in 2013, and has become a thriving sector.
As to compare internationally, Alberto San Augustin, head of research in IAB, said that there are some differences between countries when opting for a strategy of search engine advertising or of display advertising. The United States, The United Kingdom, France and Spain have spent more budget in strategies of search engines than to display, while Ireland, Germany and Finland have preferred to invest more in the display.

Projections indicate that the growth of digital advertising will stand at around 3% in 2014, the video will be positioned as a preferred format and "investment in mobile continue to increase, reaching approximately 40% of the total, due to its versatility "concluded David Segura, president of IAB.
