Internet Advertising exceeded CZK 14.6 Billion Last Year

Internet advertising reached CZK 14.6 billion in the last year, which, compared to 2013 represents a 10 per cent growth caused primarily by increased advertising expenditures in the field of search advertising, display banner advertisements and video advertising. Expectations for the coming year are also optimistic. Survey participants assume that online advertising will continue to grow by further 13 per cent up to CZK 16.5 billion. Out of the total advertising expenditures, online advertising accounts for a 20 per cent share of the advertising budgets in the Czech Republic. The data come from the annual survey of Internet advertising performance conducted for SPIR by the Ppm Factum Research agency.

The largest part of advertising expenditures (CZK 7.1 billion) is attributable to display advertising. If compared to the last year’s volume of CZK 6.8 billion, we see a slight growth that was probably caused by the increasing popularity of non-standard advertising forms. Advertising in search networks (Google, AdWords, Sklik) continuously increases expenditures and in the last year it reached the expected volume of CZK 3.4 billion. The volume of advertising sold in content networks is CZK 1.6 billion in real prices. Over one billion of Czech crowns (CZK 1.3 billion) is attributable to classified and directories advertisements. * net prices, other in ratecard prices
