U.S. Programmatic Ad Spend To Top $10 Billion In 2014 And Double By 2016 [eMarketer]
Vast majority of programmatic spend flows via real-time bidding on open exchanges, but programmatic direct is expected to grow significantly.

Programmatic — automated digital ad buying — is on fire in the U.S, with adoption rising quickly this year. New data from eMarketer pegs the programmatic display market in the U.S. at $10 billion this year, and estimates it will top $20 billion by 2016.
“2014 has proven a pivotal year, and with the majority of infrastructure now laid and testing well in progress, we’ll see programmatic ad spending explode from 2015 into 2016,” said Lauren Fisher, analyst for eMarketer.
In 2014, eMarketer predicts programmatic buying will account for 45 percent of total digital display ad spending. The pogrammatic display market includes banners, rich media, sponsorship, video and other digital display formats, though eMarketer notes that the vast market in programmatic is currently focused on banners and will likely continue to be in the coming years.
