AR Ads: Social Media Vs Native App Vs Web

AR advertising is expected to reach $1.41 billion this year and $8.02 billion by 2024. This means that AR ads are here to stay and will be crucial for your brand to start adopting them in order to stay ahead of the competition.  So where should I promote my AR ads?



There are nearly three billion augmented reality capable devices on the market today, with a projected 598 million active AR users by the end of 2020. Facebook is projected to have 1.58 billion users with AR compatible smartphones by the end of this year, followed by ARkit/Apple devices (1.19 billion), TikTok (950 million), ARCore/Android devices (633 million), Snapchat users (240 million) and all AR capable devices work with WebAR. *All figures represent year-end estimates.



It is important to consider what kind of product your business is offering and to whom. The latest generations of mobile users are on Snapchat, Instagram and TikTok – platforms that provide the latest tools for self-expression and personalization. On the other hand, WebAR doesn’t need you to download or have you logged in any platform.  It creates less friction between the user and the experience.
