The changing nature of in-app advertising in Asia
Mobile in-app is not only becoming the preferred digital channel of advertisers in Asia, but is increasingly being used to drive goals such as brand alignment and customer engagement, a study from adtech firm PubMatic finds.
Why it matters
Digital advertising channels such as in-app have tended to focus on performance marketing and meeting short-term targets. With advertisers seeing benefits in using in-app to drive longer-term branding goals, spending patterns may shift even further towards digital.
- Mobile in-app commands 20% of budget allocation over the next 12 months, ahead of mobile web (17%), connected TV (16%) and desktop (15% ).
- Within this channel, buyers are increasingly embracing programmatic as a critical part of media plans.
- Across the region, top reasons to invest in programmatic in-app are: to extend reach (74%), better customer engagement (73%), advertising buying efficiency (73%), brand alignment (72%).
- The details vary by market: 81% of China-based advertisers are investing in in-app advertising for brand alignment vs. the average of 72%.
- Roughly one third express concerns around data privacy and targeting.
The big idea
