In the first six months of 2022, the figure was 37% higher. A significant drop occurred in the first quarter of 2023, when branded video volume fell by more than half (54%). In the second quarter the situation stabilized and the decrease was 10%, up to 3.8 billion rubles.

As Andrey Grigoriev, co-chairman of the ARIR Digital Video Advertising Committee, CEO of GetShop.TV, points out, this dynamic is associated with the events of 2022, when many international advertisers left the Russian market.

“The drop in volumes at the end of the second quarter of 2023 compared to last year’s results was offset by the increase in budgets of domestic and new advertisers (for example, from China), which have high demand for video . I believe that the branding video segment at the end of 2023 will show results superior to those of last year,” explains the expert.
