Private marketplace (PMP) adoption continued to increase in 2015, and there are no signs of it slowing down. eMarketer estimates that PMP spending will reach $3.65 billion this year and grow 35% to a projected $4.93 billion by 2017. These gains are driven, in part, by the premium prices that PMP inventory garner. PubMatic’s Q3 2015 Quarterly Mobile Index Report found that PMP CPMs are higher than non-PMP CPMs, by a factor of 5-6x for mobile PMP and 3-4x for desktop PMP.

Publishers are embracing PMPs as a means to gain more control over which advertisers run on their premium inventory in the programmatic space. Buyers are interested in PMP as it allows them to better reach their target audience through a publisher they trust, with the benefit of access to premium inventory that might not otherwise be available in the open market.

While PMPs will likely continue to be an effective programmatic solution in 2016 for publishers and buyers alike, they present some challenges. For publishers, issues like finding the right buyers, setting pricing and troubleshooting can create barriers to successful PMP implementation. However, with the right data and actionable information, these challenges can be overcome. The following are a few suggested strategies for publishers to address these issues by leveraging analytics.
