How big is the programmatic digital display ad market in Germany?
Programmatic ad spending in Germany will rise 18.5% to reach €2.34 billion ($2.76 billion) in 2019, accounting for 80.0% of digital display ad spend. We expect programmatic display spending to increase by double digits annually through 2021.
How does programmatic display ad spending break down by transaction method?
In 2019, nearly three-quarters of all programmatic digital display ad spending in Germany will be direct buys, and that share is growing. Open exchanges will account for 14.9% of programmatic ad spending this year, and private marketplaces (PMPs) will claim 10.1%.
What about mobile programmatic display ads?
Mobile programmatic display ad spending will jump 25.2% in 2019, to reach €1.66 billion ($1.95 billion). Spending on programmatic desktop/laptop ads will also rise to nearly €685 million ($808 million) this year, but growth in mobile ad spending will be greater.
What obstacles does programmatic growth face in Germany?
While some advertisers still value traditional, nonautomated ad buying, this attitude is gradually vanishing due to automation’s popularity and ability to generate better returns. Still, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has caused reluntance in some smaller advertisers with limited technical or financial resources because they’re not sure whether those processes will be GDPR-compliant and are worried about potential fines or other issues.
