TV Nations: Outlook for Progressive TV Advertising Solutions in Europe

Addressable TV is forecast to become a billion Euro market, with growth driven by new-to-TV advertisers.


London, April 27th, 2017— Videology, a leading software provider for converged TV and video advertising, today announced the findings of an independent study into the future prospects for progressive TV advertising across Europe.

In “TV Nations: Outlook For Progressive TV Advertising Solutions”, research and strategy consulting firm MTM conducted an in-depth review of developments across Europe, exploring the views and perspectives of agencies, broadcasters and TV platforms in nine countries: Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

The TV and video advertising market is experiencing a period of disruption, transitioning towards a more diverse, data-driven and digitally-advanced landscape. And although TV advertising has been resilient, there is now a consensus that the industry needs to invest in the development of progressive TV advertising solutions across Europe.  

Industry executives agree that addressable TV advertising can attract new advertisers and campaigns to TV, as well as helping to ensure that TV remains competitive. Indeed, they predict that progressive TV advertising solutions will help to drive significant growth for the broadcasting industry, with some executives envisaging a billion Euro market.

However, the study finds there are still significant barriers to overcome. Most executives feel the biggest barrier to adoption is the need for collaboration around data and inventory, especially in terms of commercial agreements between TV platforms and broadcasters, and consumer protection. In addition, regulation is perceived to have slowed development in markets such as France and Germany, but industry participants believe this will change over the next few years.

To grow the industry, the study identifies five main priorities for the TV industry:

1.      Establish common approaches to data protection, privacy and sharing.

2.      Encourage collaboration through joint platforms and standardisation.

3.      Support the development of unified measurement systems that are auditable and transparent.

4.      Drive demand through testing, case studies and ROI analysis.

5.      Develop a compelling set of consumer benefits and a clear value exchange.
