  • 1. AppFlood Global Mobile Android Advertising Insights Q1 2014
  • 2. Q1 2014 mobile ad ecosystem at a glance • Mobile traffic grew 45.47% QoQ • eCPM rose 100% YoY to $0.97 • CPI prices declined to $0.30 in Q1 2014 post-holiday season • Rich media ads grew 34% MoM and shows signs of chipping away at interstitial mobile ad revenue • Asia and the Middle East traffic accounted for 50% of global traffic combined • China spread out its mobile ad spend globally, but U.S. advertisers re-invested 62% of its budget back into the U.S. alone
  • 3. Global mobile traffic continues growth With more mobile devices shipping to the global market, mobile traffic continues its consistent growth as traffic increased 45.5% QoQ between Q3 2013 and Q1 2014. Traffic grew 25.09% MoM.
  • 4. eCPMs are on the upswing eCPMs have kept pace with mobile ad traffic growth as inventory grows. eCPMs reached $1.26 in February 2014. Q1 2014’s eCPM rose 100% to $0.97 compared to the same quarter last year.
  • 5. Cost-per install levels off post-holiday season With demand from performance advertisers for traffic cooling off, CPI prices declined from a high of $0.51 during Q4 2013 to just $0.30 by the first quarter of next year.
  • 6. Interstitials are a cash cow, but rich media revenue is rallying Interstitials accounted for the lion’s share (70%) of total mobile ad revenue by ad format in Q1 2014.
  • 7. However revenue from the interstitial mobile ad format declined 14% MoM as rich media ate into interstitial revenue and climbed 34% MoM.
  • 8. All eyes are on Asia & the Middle East Collectively the largest source of traffic in Q1 2014 originated from Asia and accounted for 27% of total traffic. However, the Middle East followed with 23%.
  • 9. Traffic from Asia and North America are more likely to convert into users The second largest volume of traffic may have originated from the Middle East, but the region’s users only accounted for 12% of total installs generated. North America and Asia lead with 23% of total installs and 21% of total installs respectively.
  • 10. Not surprisingly, western regions clearly lead on install-rates. North America peaked at 7.72% during Q1 2014, while Asia’s IR was just 2.83%.
  • 11. Western Europe and North America compete for mobile ad spend with the east - Asia and Middle East North America and Europe combined received 1.7 times the investment than Asia and the Middle East.
  • 12. Chinese developers outspent U.S. on mobile in H2 2013, but U.S. eclipsed China in Q1 2014 Mobile ad spend from Chinese advertisers outpaced the U.S., growing 110% QoQ compounded between Q2 2013 and Q1 2014 to the U.S.’s 86% QoQ. However U.S. advertisers bounced back to overtake China by February and March 2014. During the first quarter of this year China’s spend declined 15% MoM, while the U.S.’s spend increased 16% MoM.
  • 13. Chinese advertisers have global agendas, while U.S. advertisers are sticking close to home To Chinese advertisers, Asia and the Middle East regionally were the highest priority, which accounted for 32% and 21% of their total budgets in Q1 2014 respectively. U.S. developers on the other hand simply re- invested in the U.S. with as much as 62% of their total mobile ad budget spent on targeting North America alone. The U.S. outspent China in Q1 2014, but Chinese and U.S. advertisers clearly exhibited completely different mobile advertising strategies. Chinese advertisers diversified their spend by running global campaigns.
  • 14. Interest in the Middle East mobile market is growing and can’t be ignored A clearly underrepresented region increasingly targeted by both western and eastern developers is the Middle East. The emerging region of Southeast Asia on the other hand continued to be in demand by Chinese advertisers.
  • 15. As the smartphone penetration rate grows and matures in the Middle East, more mobile advertisers are demanding Middle East traffic. Consequently, global spend into the Middle East grew 62.4% QoQ since Q3 2013.
  • 16. The mobile app economy is evolving While the mobile app economy has traditionally been western-centric, we’re beginning to witness a marked shift whereby the east is growing into a contender with the west. • As demand for inventory increases, the buying power is shifting to China, although western budgets from the U.S. are competing hand-to-hand. • Advertisers from China are investing not only in western traffic, but more investment on mobile is being allocated into eastern traffic from regions including South East Asia and the Middle East, while U.S. advertisers are reinvesting their spend into the U.S. • With the app economy evolving, there’s a growing demand for rich media ads as more brands enter the mobile ad space from both the east and the west. Data and analysis in the AppFlood Global Mobile Android Industry Insight report are derived from on AppFlood’s mobile advertising network, including AppFlood Android advertisers, publishers, and partners.
  • 17. Launched by PapayaMobile in July 2012, AppFlood is the largest global mobile RTB network from China. AppFlood has since attracted more than 10,000 Android and iOS developers. Since launch, more than 400 million unique handsets globally have displayed app promotions from the AppFlood network.
