Several ad-tech companies have reported that an Ad Exchange (ad exchanges) volume in the Europe region suddenly decreased by 25 to 40% since the early morning of May 28, 2018 when GDPR was enforced. AdTech enterprises dealing with Google's advertising platform was busy reporting the situation that advertisement space is sharply decreasing to advertisers. This is due to the fact that Google's ad exchange "DoubleClick Bid Manager" in the Europe region has temporarily suspended until it fully responds to GDPR by participating in IAB Europe's GDPR framework.

With the enforcement of GDPR, some major American publishers have seen movements to raise inventory from websites. For example, USA Today removes all advertisement distribution services such as Google from the website for the EU region. Until an ad exchanging company such as Google responds to GDPR, the possibility of violation of the GDPR rule can not be wiped away Discontinue the advertisement distribution itself, and guide the European users to the original home version site that can deliver advertisements as before It is said that.

"However, publishers wanting to sell advertising space And advertisers who want to buy advertisements are wondering whether Google has delayed response until the enforcement, although there was a delay of three years since the GDPR draft was issued.

The disruption of the Google advertising platform within the EU is expected to last several weeks, although it will not last several months.
