The report, The Economics of Mobile Ad Spend 2013 – 2016: Global Inventory, Media Billings and Business Operations, presents a detailed accounting of global sales by territory, including the U.S., Europe, AsiaPac, Africa and Latin America, calculated against inventory requests, formats, pricing by region, fill rates, CTRs and eCPMs.
