Report: The state of CTV advertising in 2021

The past year significantly accelerated a TV consumption trend that was happening before the pandemic. Consumers, already using connected TV to stream video content, gravitated even closer to CTV content as they were confined to their homes and watched from different devices in a single house at the same time. 

As the shift from linear to CTV continues, marketing teams are putting more ad dollars into the space. Brands are discovering that CTV allows them to create more interactive ad experiences that can draw higher engagement and conversions — but advertisers also have to tackle measurement and fragmentation obstacles that come with investing in CTV.
