Published on Apr 13, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Real-Time Bidding Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global real-time bidding market reached a value of US$ 10.1 Billion in 2021. Real-time bidding (RTB) is a server-to-server buying and selling process of online advertisements on a per-impression basis. It is facilitated through live, automated auctions that employ programmatic buying to determine the winner of the auction. They involve the use of computer-based algorithms to make the trade within milliseconds and display the winner’s advertisement on the publisher’s website. The functioning of these biddings is similar to that of financial markets and stock exchanges. As a result, it is widely preferred by end users as they offer improved profit margins, targeted advertising campaigns, enhanced attribution accuracy, and superior transparency of dealings at reduced advertisement costs.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
