Let's refer to another data perspective by Statista, on digital advertising spend in Malaysia. Do take note that this is algorithm-based calculation without in-depth analysis.

Below is the YoY forecast of Malaysia's digital spend by Statista:
  • 2017: USD341 million (RM1.40 billion)
  • 2018: USD432 million (RM1.77 billion)
  • 2019: USD548 million (RM2.24 billion)
  • 2020: USD692 million (RM2.83 billion)
  • 2021: USD864 million (RM3.53 billion)
  • 2022: USD1,059 million (RM4.33 billion)

The 2018 figures by Statista (RM1.77 billion) is higher than RM1.3 billion reported earlier in this article. Statista forecasted digital ad spend in Malaysia will reach RM2.24 billion in 2019.

In fact, it has been forecasted at more than 20% YoY growth from 2017 all the way to 2023, representing a bright future for the digital marketing industry.
