    Notes: Branding will be the primary objective of 42% of US digital ad spending this year, forecasts eMarketer, a slight increase from 40.9% last year but well below the 48.5% share previously forecast for 2017. Nevertheless, objectives vary widely by industry, with CPG and consumer product digital ad spend heavily weighted towards branding (65% share) and travel to direct response (72% share).
