Stay Ahead with Our Latest Updated 101 Guide to Retail Media

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. IAB Europe also forecasts that Digital Retail Media advertising spend will exceed €21bn by 2026.
