The rapid growth of e-commerce means Retail Media has reached critical mass – riding a third wave of digital advertising. From 2012 to 2022, the online share of retail trade more than doubled in the UK and more than tripled in Germany, with a 26.5% and 19.6% share respectively according to the Centre for Retail Research. More people are buying products and services on e-commerce sites which generates valuable data in the form of shopper behaviour logs that translate into audiences and signals for advertisers to target. Furthermore, over 90% of advertisers are partnering with retailers to reach existing and prospective consumers. A trend that will only continue. IAB Europe forecasts that Digital Retail Media advertising spend will exceed €21bn by 2026.

Why Retail Media Matters

The growth of Retail Media is undeniable; brands can now collaborate with retail partners to directly engage consumers across the purchase journey. By leveraging retailer first-party data, they can target, optimise, and measure their campaigns with precision. 

Advertising at the point of purchase, combined with closed-loop attribution, is fueling this high growth, making Retail Media an indispensable tool for modern marketers.

What's Inside the Updated Guide

This 101 Guide to Retail Media, initially crafted by experts from IAB Europe’s Retail Media Committee in September 2023, has been updated to ensure it remains a relevant educational resource for the digital advertising industry.

The updated Guide covers:

  • Key Definitions: The guide includes the only pan-European harmonised definitions of Retail Media including on-site, off-site and digital in-store.
  • Buying and Measuring: An updated measurement and metrics section, including more on IAB Europe's Retail Media Measurement Standards.
  • How it Works: A new ‘Path to Purchase’ Infographic to show how retail and commerce media can be bought.
  • Case Studies: New case studies to demonstrate how Retail Media is being used in the real world. 
  • Best Practices: Essential strategies and practices for stakeholders in this dynamic channel.

Whether new to the concept or looking to deepen your knowledge, this guide is designed to equip you with the insights and tools needed to thrive.
