We get it.

It’s getting harder and harder to avoid video online.

If you’ve logged into your social media accounts in the last few hours, chances are you’ve seen at least one video on your timeline.

By now, it should be clear that video is increasingly becoming the medium of choice, whether it’s on social media or a company website.

What’s not clear, though, is the pace at which video marketing is shaking things up.

Since I started working at Vidyard in January 2016, there’s been huge progress in the field of video marketing. Just Google “live”, “interactive”, “4K”, “personalized”, or “360-degree video” and you’ll see that in each of these categories, there’s been monumental investment and technology development in the last 6 months.

Awesome, right?

So, if you’re data hungry like me, you want to gauge how fast that progress really is.

This infographic is a compilation of some of the most powerful stats out there that show you how fast the world of video marketing is taking off and what we can expect in the near future.
