Connected TV Advertisers Increased 30% Year Over Year

 

More Advertisers are Getting on Connected TV

Connected TV continues to grow in every important metric. It’s established that more viewers are flocking to streaming services, and now with recent research from Innovid showing a 30% increase in CTV advertisers, it’s clear brands are doing the same as well. Not only did the number of advertisers increase, but so did the number of impressions, up 178% when compared to last year.

The numbers are going up for a reason. As viewing habits evolve with Connected TV, so too do viewers’ preferences around advertising. Brands running campaigns across CTV are discovering viewers are interested in their offerings; the fact that the engagement rate in 2017 for CTV campaigns was 14.7% is testament to that. Viewers actually watch and engage with CTV ads, proving CTV is an enormous opportunity for brands to connect with their audience.
