Demand Side Platform (DSP) is a software that allows advertisers to buy/purchase advertising space for advertising portfolio. Agencies use this platform to buy ad portfolio through an instantaneous bidding system and ad exchange. These platforms are used for advertising inventory over various channels such as display, mobile, video, and native. The rising demand and popularity for programmatic advertising among advertisers is driving the market. Programmatic advertising includes DSPs and Supply-Side Platforms (SSPs).
For instance, in August 2022, Google added three features for advertising on Connected TV (CTV) and to measure the right audience. It added Nielsen Digital Ad Ratings for audience guarantees, advanced programmatic guarantee, and consolidated CTV workflow across YouTube and other CTV apps. These additions aided advertisers in planning, managing, and measuring performance across channels.
Industries Shifting to Digital Solutions and E-commerce Amid Pandemic to Boost Market Opportunity
The pandemic curtailed the movement of goods, services, and people worldwide and significantly impacted economic activity and financial markets. As a result, shifting the workforce to a remote working environment created oversight challenges.
However, in the early 2020s, at the start of the pandemic, demand side platform providers faced slight challenges. Eventually, lockdowns seemed to be an opportunity for greater reach of the audience as people inclined toward online shopping and social media the most for their daily needs. Companies have seen a rise in ad spending by advertisers.
The market witnessed growth throughout the pandemic owing to the exponential rise in e-commerce, online shopping, and the gaming sectors. A report by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) found that 55% of video game players in the U.S. played more games during the COVID-19 pandemic. This formed a significant opportunity for advertisers.

Increasing Mobile Gaming and Video Ads to Surge Product Demand
Video medium is the most widespread media type for high-impact display ads. Marketers are implementing automated video ad buying in demand side platforms for distributing digital video commercials. This helps educate the audience, increases engagement on digital and social channels, and enables customer reach with a new medium.
Moreover, home entertainment and mobile gaming in all forms are creating an unprecedented opportunity for demand side platform providers who intend on reaching newly captive audiences. Marketers utilize demand side platforms for gaming ad networks. The mobile gaming landscape has transformed into an opportunity for advertisers to focus on digital ad spending.
For instance, in April 2022, Tyroo, an ad tech platform, launched a gaming vertical, Comet, in Asia Pacific. With Comet, Tyroo can offer advertising opportunities in the vast metaverse while providing customer-centric experiences to the brands. Furthermore, the solution aids brands in shaping their ad campaigns and enhancing their customer experiences.
Rising Number of Ad Transactions through Connected TV (CTV) and OTT Platforms to Boost Market Growth
Advertisement inventories implementing new strategies, such as target audience reach and device marketing, platforms, including CTV and OTT, play a vital role in their approach. They aid in better customer reach and target audience. CTV display advertising is on the hype due to the rapid increase in video streaming through OTT platforms such as YouTube TV, Apple TV+, and Netflix. For example, the U.S. streaming revenue increased by 22.8% in 2021.
Demand side platforms facilitate businesses in promoting their brand mentions through such channels and increase avenues alongside complete control of their ad campaigns. Further, video is a highly engaging and personal ad format, which enables advertisers to reach their marketing goals efficiently.
For instance, in May 2022, Google LLC added new features to the Google Marketing Platform, Display & Video 360. To improve CTV advertising, the company expanded its CTV inventory in the Display & Video 360 demand-side platform and extended Google audiences to CTV devices.
Growing Fraudulent Practices across the Advertising Industry Might Hinder Market Growth
Fraudulent advertising is increasingly emerging as a new risk to consumers shopping online. Consumers are exposed to millions of fraudulent advertisements, directing them to illegal e-commerce websites that defraud and provide counterfeit products and deceitful services. Ad frauds may occur in many forms, including fake ad impressions/clicks by bad bots, piling ads on top of one another, and fake ghost sites that duplicate real websites to get permitted by ad networks. A 2019 China Internet Network Information Center report stated that China's digital ad fraud rate rose as high as 40% over the last few years. China accounted for 30.7% of the total advertising spend, and the U.K. ad fraud accounted for just 2.4% during the same period in the U.K.
Moreover, many fraud adverts are using social media as a platform to practice such deceits. For instance, a report by tracit.org 2020-21 stated facts and use cases related to fraudulent practices.
By using Google's video platform YouTube, fraudsters exploited the popularity of certain popular video games by tricking consumers into downloading risky apps. Also, on YouTube, scammers used COVID-19 to profit through easy-to-find videos advertising overpriced face masks and mock vaccines, costing consumers more than USD 5 million. In April 2019, an advert for fake Tommy Hilfiger apparel was identified on LinkedIn.
Complete Control over Ad Campaigns and Ad Buying Process to Increase Self Service DSP Demand
Based on type, the market is bifurcated into self service and full/managed service.
Full/managed service segment captures the major revenue share in the market owing to its diverse advertising solution offerings and growing popularity among advertisers. In full/managed service DSP, a third-party, such as an agency, runs and manages the entire campaign to target an accurate audience with the help of their media strategist's team.
However, the self service segment is expected to hold the highest CAGR during the forecast period, giving advertisers complete control over their ad campaigns. Marketers can have full control over the ad buying process, selecting inventory, and running campaign management with the help of their marketing team. Self service demand-side platforms are efficient marketing tools that enable advertisers to buy high-quality impressions at scale with minimal friction. This factor is likely to drive the demand side platform market growth.
