The State of the U.S. Advertising Market

According to PwC’s latest Entertainment & Media Outlook, online advertising in the United States is poised for further growth in the next few years. PwC estimates that internet ad revenue could grow to $116.2 billion a year by 2021, up from $86.4 billion this year.
