U.S. online video advertising revenue will exceed $1.3 billion in 2010

Steady growth in online video viewership, combined with the ability to target specific viewers based on preferences and viewing history, will push U.S. revenues for online video advertising over $1.3 billion in 2010.

Online Video Advertising: Strategies & Results, finds large percentages of consumers, especially younger consumers, have yet to form a strong opinion regarding targeted advertising. These advertisements include commercials shown before an online video or overlays displayed during the show, with the content based on the user’s Internet, TV, and mobile usage and viewing habits.

Among U.S. broadband households, almost 50% of heads-of-household aged 18-34 are indifferent to targeted advertising, while 42% aged 25-54 and 25% aged 55 or older are similarly neutral. The younger age groups are more receptive to the concept of targeted advertising, and advertisers place a premium on the ability to reach these demographics.

While online video does not yet have the same audience reach as traditional broadcast and cable TV, the medium continues to grow its user base, and increased content offerings via TV Everywhere initiatives will bring in more viewers and boost advertising revenues. Currently over 50% of heads-of-household 25-54 watch online video at least weekly, and the percentage jumps to 75% for ages 18-34.
