By eMarketer‘s latest estimates, US retailers are on pace to increase digital ad budgets by 15.7% to $9.50 billion.

Much of that spending can be expected to focus on drawing holiday shoppers, as the last months of the year account for a disproportionate share of retail revenues. eMarketer predicts 23.5% of all US retail eCommerce sales this year, for example, will take place in November and December, amounting to $61.8 billion. eMarketer estimates US retail ecommerce sales will grow 16.4% to $262.3 billion this year.

“Retailers already spend more than any other vertical industry on digital advertising,” eMarketer reports, “and this year’s increases are expected to give the industry a 22.3% share of total US digital ad spending—identical to last year’s share. This figure is expected to fall slightly in coming years as the overall market grows slightly faster than retail.”
