Mobile To Drive Huge 20% Increase In Online Video Viewing in 2016
How much more content can we watch? New findings from ZenithOptimedia suggest the average amount time people will spend consuming online video each day will increase by 23.3% in 2015 and by a further 19.8% in 2016. The growth in video consumption is being driven by the rapid rise of smartphone and tablet penetration across the globe, together with the resulting changes in consumer behaviour. Video consumption on mobile devices is forecast to grow by 43.9% in 2015 and 34.8% in 2016. Meanwhile, video consumption on non-mobile devices will continue to grow, though at more moderate rates, increasing by 9.5% in 2015 and 6.5% in 2016.

ZenithOptimedia expects mobile to become the main platform for viewing online video next year. In 2012 mobile devices accounted for 22.9% of time spend watching online video worldwide. By 2014, this proportion had risen to 40.1%, and Zenith expects it to reach 52.7% in 2016 and 58.1% in 2017.

ZenithOptimedia also predicts that the number of people regularly watching traditional, linear TV will peak this year, and will start to decline for the first time in 2016. The report states that the number of regular linear TV viewers will rise 3.1% in 2015 but then shrink by 1.9% in 2016 and 0.9% in 2017.

TV Campaigns Extend Reach Via Facebook Ads
Facebook has seen success with video ad placements, and recent research indicates that TV advertisers are leveraging the social network to stretch the reach of their campaigns. According to March 2015 research by Nielsen for Facebook IQ, Facebook helps advertisers running television campaigns target younger age segments that are harder to reach on TV. Facebook-only entertainment ad campaigns in the US reached 13.4% of the 18-to-24 targeted age group, or nearly a quarter of overall reach among the demographic. Cross-platform campaigns delivered an average reach of 15.5%, or almost 27% of the total. Meanwhile, among those ages 25 to 34, cross-platform ads reached 14.0% of the targeted age group and Facebook-only campaigns about 10%, representing 22.3% and nearly 15% of total campaign reach, respectively. The boosts are particularly significant when one considers that nearly seven in 10 people reached on Facebook of all ages fell in the 18-to-34 range, vs. 26% share of those on TV, emphasizing the huge reach advertisers can gain among these younger demographics by going beyond television.

Video continues to expand its share of both mobile and total Facebook ad dollars. According to research from Nanigans, video increased its share of overall Facebook ad spending worldwide by 23% between Q1 2015 and Q2 2015, from 13% to 16%. Growth was even more impressive when it came to mobile ads, where video’s portion of spending rose by 40% quarter over quarter, from 15% to 21%.

According to Kinetic Social, video’s share of Facebook ad dollars is larger in the US, where the format accounted for almost 27% of advertiser spend on the social network in Q2 2015. While this was slightly lower than its 28.0% share in Q1 2015, it was nearly double the portion it grabbed in Q4 2014 and more than triple that in Q2 2014. Overall, eMarketer estimated in April 2015 that Facebook ad spending worldwide would jump nearly 35% this year to reach $15.50 billion. At the same time, we forecast that Facebook mobile internet ad revenues would hit $11.01 billion globally in 2015, up 48.4% year over year.
