Android App Inventory Value Increases Nearly 150 Percent Year-over-Year, as Advertisers Seek to Target Increasingly Valuable Android Users
PubMatic, the marketing automation software company for publishers, today announced that its Q1 2016 Quarterly Mobile Index (QMI) report found that advertisers are increasingly targeting Android users, as Android app inventory prices or CPMs (cost per thousand ad impressions) increased 147 percent, year-over-year. While Apple iOS app inventory prices are still higher on an absolute basis, iOS app CPMs rose only 62 percent year-over-year. This mobile advertising pricing data demonstrates that, globally, Android users represent an increasing value to advertisers.
PubMatic’s Q1 2016 QMI report also found that mobile app and mobile web CPMs grew 67 percent and 57 percent year-over-year, respectively, indicating increasing quality and value across both mobile platforms. The improvement in mobile web value is especially important to premium publishers that typically see the majority of their mobile traffic originating from mobile web (e.g. mobile browsers, such as Safari and Chrome). In the first quarter, 80 percent of monetized mobile inventory came from mobile web—with the remainder from mobile apps—which means that premium publishers are better monetizing on the bulk of their ad inventory.
“The wealth of mobile advertising data from our platform continually helps us understand how advertisers are evolving their strategies to target the unpredictable, increasingly-mobile global consumer,” said Rajeev Goel, Co-Founder and CEO of PubMatic. “We’re seeing major surges in advertiser demand across both mobile app and mobile web platforms, and we expect these trends to continue as premium publishers create more impactful mobile strategies for brand advertisers. This, in turn, will result in higher-quality mobile experiences for consumers.”
Additionally, the report revealed that advertiser demand shifted to private marketplaces (PMPs) during major sporting events in the first quarter, such as the Super Bowl, the Six Nations Championship and NCAA College Basketball Tournament, as advertisers looked to target mobile-fixated consumers who were following these exciting match-ups on their mobile devices. “More media buyers are realizing that PMPs allow them to pre-plan on campaigns ahead of major events, because PMPs offer preferred access to high-quality inventory, at scale,” added Goel.
The quarterly report, which analyzed billions of daily impressions from Q1 2016 operational data, found five key trends in global mobile advertising for the quarter:
- Android app inventory value was up nearly 150 percent year-over-year, as advertisers targeted the majority of global mobile consumers
- For premium publishers, mobile web represented the majority of mobile traffic and inventory, and a significant monetization opportunity
- Average mobile CPMs in the Americas and the EMEA region grew 30 percent and 64 percent, respectively, demonstrating increasing quality of mobile inventory on a global level
- Major sporting events attracted significant spending in mobile private marketplaces, driving PMP volume in the sports category over 1000 percent year-over-year
- Programmatic is improving mobile CPMs, driving broader mobile advertising growth
