Examining opportunities for the medium’s growth, an overwhelming majority of the participating countries agreed that mobile and programmatic video would gain importance in the overall media mix. Some common challenges also rose to the surface, including ad blocking, the fragmentation of video technology, and the variations of data and metrics across video platforms.

In addition, the report uncovers some key differences in the digital video marketplace from country-to-country:

  • Russia sees greater potential for digital video advertising on the desktop/laptop web than on mobile devices
  • Denmark was the only country that emphasized the higher importance of user-generated media over premium TV content
  • While 90% of responding IABs regarded live streaming content as least important among digital video ad formats, Mexico and Uruguay view live streaming as the most important

“Digital video is captivating audiences around the world and it is imperative that we understand similarities and differences across borders if we’re going to build on the medium’s momentum,” said Anna Bager, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Mobile and Video, IAB. “An abundance of innovative programming is jumpstarting digital video into an international phenomenon. And, if marketers, agencies, and publishers want to take full advantage, they’ll need a wealth of international and regional insights at their fingertips in order to adjust their plans market-to-market for optimal impact.”

“The IAB State of the Digital Video World” report was released at the 2015 IAB MIXX Conference in New York City, and is available for download at http://www.iab.net/stateofdigitalworld.
