The volume of internet advertising reached CZK 15 billion last year. Compared to 2014 this represents a 3 per cent growth that was caused primarily by increased advertising expenditures in search advertising and content networks, video advertising, RTB and mobile display advertising. Expectations for the coming year are also optimistic, the survey participants assume that online advertising will continue to grow by 11 per cent to CZK 16.7 billion CZK. Out of the total advertising expenditures, online advertising accounts for a 20 per cent share. The data come from the annual survey of Internet advertising performance conducted for SPIR by the Ppm Factum Research Agency.
In 2015 advertisers used online advertising in the volume of CZK 15 billion. This is by 3,2 per cent (CZK 460 mil.) more than in the previous year and confirms the ongoing growing trend in the use of online forms of advertising. * estimation, excluding SMS, MMS
The largest part of advertising expenditures is attributable to display advertising (CZK 6.65 billion) and advertising networks (CZK 5.85 billion) including paid search (CZK 3.66 billion) and content networks (CZK 2.19 billion). If compared to the last year, display advertising shows a 6 per cent decline, while advertising networks (including Sklik, AdWords, Facebook and eTarget) has grown by 18 per cent. Over one billion of Czech crowns (CZK 1.09 billion) is attributable to video (in-stream) advertising that has recorded the annual growth of 20 per cent. * net prices, other in ratecard prices
Advertisers continuously spend more money on video and mobile advertising on the internet. In the past three years (since 2012) the performance of video advertising increased two times and mobile advertising 2.5 times, up to CZK 1.09 billion and 189 mil, respectively. PR articles expenditures represented CZK 161 million of the advertising budgets. The mobile advertising volume is coming from the participating media and shows the volume of advertisements placed on websites and accessed from mobile phones and applications. Mobile advertising (phones and tablets) in search and content networks is included in the respective categories “Search” and “Content Networks” and as stated by the respective agencies, has a 20 per cent share in this category.
RTB model advertising recorded the highest growth. The last year’s CZK 198 million in real prices is based on estimates of media, i.e. the advertising space offer. Moreover, SMS and MMS messages in operator networks reached the amount of CZK 136 million in the last year.

While surveying and processing the results, in the interest of objectivity and the protection of sensitive data, the Ppm Factum agency was commissioned. The survey was conducted during January and February 2016, so that it was based on current closings of individual subjects. The performance of all types of advertising was based on declared performance of individual providers of content, agencies, and operators of advertising networks and mobile operators.
