eMarketer Releases New US Programmatic Ad Spending Figures

By 2019, 83.6% of US digital display ad dollars will transact programmatically

November 1, 2017 | eMarketer Podcast | Media Buying

US programmatic digital display ad spending will reach $32.56 billion by the end of 2017, eMarketer projects. By 2019, more than four in five US digital display ad dollars, or $45.72 billion, will flow via automated means.

These are the findings from eMarketer’s latest report, “US Programmatic Ad Spending Forecast: The Duopoly Drives Dollars Through 2019.” eMarketer PRO subscribers can read the full report here. Nonsubscribers can purchase the report here.

US Programmatic Digital Display Ad Spending, 2015-2019 (billions, % change and % of total digital display ad spending*)

Continued emphasis on advertising quality and brand safety will accelerate spending on both programmatic direct and private marketplace (PMP) deals. By 2019, the combined share of these two transaction types will be 79.6% of the total programmatic pie.

2017 will be the first year that the growth in open-market spending slips into the single digits. Yet the continued adoption of header bidding will help keep dollars flowing there over the forecast period.

Meanwhile, mobile’s share of US programmatic digital display ad outlays will increase, thanks to overall market trends and the continued influence of players like Facebook and Google, which are both mobile- and programmatic-centric. By 2019, nearly 80% of programmatic ad spend will go to mobile—rather than desktop—ads.

Programmatic buying of digital video ads will also continue to grow, thanks to brands’ rising use of advanced audience buying practices and publishers’ growing acceptance of automation’s role in the sales process. By 2019, 77% of all US digital video ad dollars will move programmatically.

In the latest episode of "Behind the Numbers," eMarketer analysts Lauren Fisher and Nicole Perrin break down eMarketer's newest estimates for programmatic ad spending. This episode is made possible by Criteo.
