Total U.S. mobile ad spending will grow from $790 million in 2010 to $4 billion in 2015. This makes locally targeted mobile ads 51 percent of overall U.S. mobile ad spending, growing to 70 percent by 2015. BIA/Kelsey defines mobile local advertising as that which targets users in specific locations or contains location-specific calls to action. Among the drivers of mobile ad revenue growth are smartphone penetration, mobile Web usage and related increases in ad inventory.
