DESKTOP pre-roll advertisements – those advertisements that appear before you get to enjoy your YouTube video, for example – remained the format of choice for advertisers in South-East Asia, according to TubeMogul’s quarterly report on the first quarter of 2016.
This was most notable in in Thailand and Vietnam, where desktop pre-rolls garnered 90% of impression share, the company said in a statement.
“Despite the introduction of new ad formats, South-East Asian advertisers are still addicted to the tried-and-true options available via desktop pre-roll,” said TubeMogul vice president of research Taylor Schreiner.
“Even though South-East Asian markets are prolific users of mobile, maturation of this market remains challenged by data limitations despite inventory increasing and CPMs (costs-per-mile) decreasing across the region,” he added.
Other highlights from the report include:
- South-East Asia continues to see upward growth. All countries covered in the report experienced growth in mobile inventory over the prior quarter.
- Alongside the growth in inventory, half of the countries also saw a decline in CPM quarter over quarter.
- Advertisers in South-East Asia were split between 30-second ads to 15-second ads. Half of the countries – Indonesia, the Philippines, and Thailand – all saw more 15-second impressions.
