Advertisers are capitalizing on this trend by optimizing their search advertising campaigns for voice search queries.

Data coverage:

Data encompasses enterprises (B2B). Figures are based on search advertising spending and exclude agency commissions, rebates, production costs, and taxes. The market covers search advertising that is displayed on search result pages or next to organic search results.

Modeling approach:

A combined top-down and bottom-up approach determines the market size. Starting with the top-down approach, we calculate global search advertising by aggregating advertising revenues from key players (Alphabet (Google), Microsoft (Bing), Baidu, Amazon, Alibaba, etc.). Followed by the bottom-up approach, we justify global, country, and region results using web traffic and the number of app downloads. Lastly, we distribute the results to each country individually with relevant indicators such as GDP, internet users, and digital consumer spending by country.


We use a variety of forecasting techniques, depending on the behavior of the market. For instance, the S-curve function is well suited to forecast digital products due to the non-linear growth of technology adoption, whereas exponential trend smoothing (ETS) is more suited for projecting steady growth in traditional advertising markets.

Additional notes:

Data is modeled using current exchange rates. The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war are considered at a country-specific level. The market is updated twice per year in case market dynamics change.
