59% Of Global Mobile Web Users Are Now As Comfortable With Mobile Advertising As They Are With TV Or Online Advertising

SINGAPORE, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To better understand changing media consumption usage and behaviours across the world,  InMobi, the largest independent mobile advertising network, has today released the findings of its Mobile Media Consumption Report, a study of over 15,000 mobile users in 14 markets across all continents through its global mobile ad network, and research partners Decision Fuel and OnDevice Research. The study reveals that the appetite for mobile media continues to rise and that the mobile is not just a fundamental part of consumers' communication needs, but increasingly the core platform through which they access the Internet and engage with brands online.

Naveen Tewari, CEO and co-founder at InMobi, comments: "Mobile devices now permeate every aspect of modern life. The study reveals that mobile users are always-on, whether surfing the mobile web while spending time with family (48%), at a social event (45%), commuting (60%) and shopping (43%). This creates a huge opportunity for brands and marketers to engage with consumers throughout the day unlike traditional advertising like print and TV."

Mobile interactions increasingly influence buying behaviour

Overall analysis reinforces the shift towards mobile with 50% of the average global mobile web user now using mobile as either their primary or exclusive means of going online. This has resulted in mobile devices becoming an indispensable shopping tool, gaining popularity as a viable shopping channel and now used throughout the research and decision-making process of a purchase.

Mobile advertising's proving to be effective across the entire purchase funnel:

  • 75% of respondents admitted they'd been introduced to something new via their mobile device
  • 67% feel that it had provided them with better options
  • 46% said they had made purchases using their mobile device
  • 45% said it has influenced their in-store purchases

Opportunities for brands to engage with consumers through mobile apps

Mobile apps can offer brands remarkable opportunities to engage with consumers on a more personal level all across the globe. The findings of the research reveal the accelerated usage of mobile apps and found that the average consumer actively uses 6.5 apps throughout a 30-day period.
