Bringing Microsoft Advertising to more than 130 markets globally
2022 has been filled with growth. In February, we firstly launched 29 markets in Europe and
embarked on our maiden voyage into Africa. In May, we then launched 32 markets in
Latin America and Asia Pacific, including Japan
. Today, we’re thrilled to share with you that Microsoft Advertising is now available in 34 new markets across the Middle East and Africa, completing the third phase of our international expansion. We’ll do the math, but this means we’ve added nearly 100 markets to our global footprint this year alone! Altogether, advertisers can now use Microsoft Advertising to reach consumers in 131 markets and 35 languages

More markets; more opportunities
The 97 markets
launched in 2022 bring an incremental 11.6 billion annual searches for you to reach consumers using the Microsoft Advertising platform. In Europe
, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), the new markets account for 12% of the total search volume in the region. In Latin America (LATAM), 15%. And in Asia Pacific (APAC), 48%. If you haven’t yet advertised in these markets, now may be a good time to try them out – and getting started can be fast and easy. If you’re already advertising in these places with other major platforms, there are import tools
to save you time and effort getting Microsoft Advertising campaigns running.
Connecting you to customers wherever they are
The goal of our international expansion is to unlock more of Microsoft’s global search volume so, wherever they are, you can connect with your customers on our platform. From Algeria to Zimbabwe, we want to provide you with access to our unique audience, and solutions that are built to save you time, grow your business, and empower you to achieve more.
As this phase ends, another begins…the expansion story isn’t over! We look forward to sharing the next update later this year but, in the meantime, also look forward to having you join us for the journey.
