5. Within Digital, Search continues to edge display ad spend out in the next few years
6. Within Digital display, it is not surprising that video format takes the largest share (41%)

Deloitte Media consumer survey Australia 2018.
8. Ad blocking penetration in Australia is the highest in comparison to other G7 countries
From the same Deloitte report, the Australian ad blocking penetration rose from 28% in 2016 to 32% in 2018. This increase is similar to the UK.
