The IAB cited several factors that contributed to overall global growth in 2012:

“Key factors for the impressive increase in mobile advertising revenue are rising smartphone adoption/3G and 4G penetration, more time spent on mobile devices and better advertising monetization through targeting ad inventory consolidation.”
