IAB Europe Report: AdEx Benchmark 2017 (digital ad spend in Europe)


IAB Europe, in collaboration with IHS Markit, presents the AdEx Benchmark 2017 Report – the definitive guide to the state of the European digital advertising market.  The report, now in its twelfth year, reveals the key milestones contributing to this year’s market value of €48bn and the eighth consecutive year of double-digit growth.

The report provides a comprehensive perspective of digital advertising spend across Europe which is essential in benchmarking market development trends, the increasingly pan-regional nature of digital advertising investments and the role of Europe’s digital economy in a global context, attracting global start-up funding and European policy formulation.

The report is based on a study of twenty-seven markets in Europe. Twenty of these grew double-digit. Core to this growth is mobile where all markets experienced double-digit growth. For the first time, the report includes data on social ad spend and splits video by in-stream and out-stream revealing that video and social are also key growth drivers underpinned by creative innovation allowing more seamless integration of ad formats into media content.
