Global Insights Report 2021: Driving Media Quality & Performance Worldwide


Some key takeaways from the webinar include:

  • Although EMEA’s overall brand suitability trend was consistent YOY, we saw countries within the region with large fluctuations. As markets in the region begin to grow in their understanding and adoption of brand safety and suitability tools, especially pre-bid programmatic protection, we will continue to see their violation rates align with the levels seen in more mature markets, such as the UK and Italy.
  • While the post-bid fraud/SIVT violation rate decreased 19% year-over-year, EMEA has the highest fraud/SIVT rate globally. It’s important for brands to understand that preventing fraud/SIVT pre-bid will help continue to drive post-bid fraud/SIVT violation rates down.
  • Video viewability actually decreased 3% in EMEA, which makes EMEA an outlier in a year where every other region realized improvements. Viewability standards have been growing, especially with video. Brands need to ensure viewability metrics are part of their approach to campaign optimization.
  • In the post-cookie world, context is back – it is privacy-friendly and it works. Our recent research shows users are receptive to ads that are relevant to the content they’re viewing, with a significant percentage stating that they’ve actually tried a new brand product as a result of seeing a contextually relevant promotion.
