Rana Barua, group CEO, Havas Group India, said "As a network, we are constantly striving to be first movers in the industry in terms of innovation and thought leadership. Meaningful media has the potential to positively impact brand metrics, and we see CTV as an essential link between the digital and traditional ecosystems. The audience is changing the way they consume media, and CTV is dominating in terms of both screen impact and exponential audience growth. We want to draw attention to CTV and its ability to deliver with this first-in-the-country initiative. CTV is a future-forward dominating media space and by incorporating engagement on the same, we will further drive meaningful impact for the brand, business and people.”
Mohit Joshi, CEO - Havas Media Group India, said, "We're ecstatic to see these game-changing insights emerge from the brand lift survey. We're all aware that advertisers want media formats to work harder; with connected TV, we're shifting away from competing for eyeballs and toward creating meaningful exposures to target our captivated audience. I'm confident that it will allow us to attract more advertisers to the CTV ecosystem and allow marketers to consider more full-funnel solutions to maximise reach to the addressable segment. With the rise of connected devices and the resulting increase in time spent, marketers should consider CTV in any way that it complements digital and TV strategies."
Siddharth Dabhade, managing director, India, SAARC and China, MiQ, said, “We’re excited about the promising results of the brand lift survey, as it highlights the huge growth potential of CTV advertising in India, which is projected to have 80 million CTV households by 2025. MiQ can help Indian brands catapult into this space and leverage our global expertise in TV intelligence and data-driven programmatic. We are confident of bringing many more brands to the CTV advertising space through our collaboration with Samsung Ads and media agencies.”
Prabhvir Sahmey, senior director, India and South East Asia, Samsung Ads, said, “Marketers understand the value of CTV, and this study is a significant step to successfully prove the impact CTV can have on driving business outcomes in India. We’re excited to be working with MiQ to help marketers quantify results and validate the value CTV can have on the entire marketing funnel.”
