BuildOps surveyed the top 1000 construction companies in the United States to discover which audience data technologies fuel their success. Our team identified hundreds of platforms and tools leveraged by some of the most successful construction companies.

This report also compares the findings with global marketing technology adoption trends across 6 million websites. This demonstrates how and why top construction companies differ from the rest of the construction industry when it comes to advertising and marketing technology adoption.

What We Discovered

Roughly 1 out of 10 companies are starting to use an audience data management platform. Adobe Audience Manager, LiveRamp, Oracle DMP, and Tapad are the most adopted tools within construction companies. Why? It allows competitors the ability to dive into their website audiences, capture them, and target the same or similar ones with display advertising through a Demand Side Platform or retargeting tool. This increases their chances for successful online customer acquisition.

What’s the usage of audience data platforms or DMPs among the top 1000 construction companies? Our team discovered the active usage of over 22 different audience data platforms among the companies on the list. Top 5 (by usage) platforms: DemDex, Adobe Audience Manager, Tapad, Oracle DMP (BlueKai), and eXelate.
