According to AdExchanger, DSPs are putting pressure on SSPs to improve inventory quality. AdExchanger reports that "DSPs are being more aggressive in blocking supply sources until they clean up." AdExchanger notes that "the pressure could force the ecosystem to grow up."

2. Study: How concerned are advertisers about ad fraud, viewability, ad blockers?

eMarketer reported on a Credit Suisse study which found that one-in-four (24%) of marketers are concerned about digital ad fraud, a number eMarketer considers "surprising" given the increased focus on ad fraud in the industry today. Marketers are also increasingly concered about ad blocking and viewability, the latter of which is "intertwined with fraud," per eMarketer.
