MARKET PECULIARITIES

  • According to InMobi, 9 out of 10 brand marketers possess only basic working knowledge of programmatic buying. Despite that, 93% of these advertisers aim to conduct their programmatic media buying in-house. 
  • Lack of education and awareness around programmatic advertising processes is the single biggest barrier for programmatic adoption in Indonesia.
  • With the heavy smartphone adoption in Indonesia, Programmatic buying has enabled brands and agencies to increase their efficiency in mobile advertising, as well as gain better control on their campaigns and reporting.
