The Growth of Retail Media: Unveiling the Opportunities and Challenges

According to the 2022 Forrester's Predictions report, retail media spend will reach $50 billion globally this year. Looking further ahead, eMarketer predicts U.S. retail media spend alone will surpass $50 billion in 2023, representing 20 percent of total U.S. digital ad spend. As a result, consumers are dictating the pace of the funnel to be faster than ever before. Marketers must adapt their advertising and promotional strategies in sync with these changing needs and behaviors.
