New Delhi: Global advertising technology firm, The Trade Desk has launched operations in India, and appointed Tejinder Gill as the company’s India general manager.

Gill will lead the company’s business and growth strategy in India, helping Indian brands and publishers unleash the full potential of the open internet where Indian consumers are increasingly spending their time.

Rapid digitization of the media industry has provided a paradigm shift in the way Indians consume content online. In particular, content consumption on the open internet has exploded in the last 18 months. In a statement released on Wednesday, the company said it aims to help India’s digital marketers capture these fast-growing opportunities. “With The Trade Desk’s industry-leading data-driven capabilities, marketers can access a marketplace of premium advertising inventory across a wide range of websites, apps, podcasts and streaming OTT platforms,” it said.

The omnichannel platform plans to enable marketers to reach relevant audiences across different devices (including computers, mobile devices, tablets and connected TV), and engage with them meaningfully along their entire digital journey.

“Digital is the fastest-growing advertising segment in India and, as a result, marketers in India are seeking more trust and transparency as they shift more campaign budgets there,” says The Trade Desk, India, general manager, Tejinder Gill. “While Indian consumers are spending 70 percent of their time on the open internet, almost 80 percent of India’s digital ad revenue still goes to the big tech platforms, which sit outside the open internet. The Trade Desk is here to bring the much needed data-driven decision making and transparency to India’s digital advertising ecosystem, offering marketers a credible choice where they can tap into the immense opportunities of the open internet.”

Dentsu, Media-South Asia, Divya Karani, said, “Digital duopoly has existed for quite a while in India. However, we are now seeing brands increase their spends on other platforms on the open internet. Seeing how programmatic advertising has grown multi-fold in the past few years, The Trade Desk has arrived in India at the right time, when opportunities on the open internet are expected to grow much faster than traditional digital channels.”

According to Publicis Media Services CEO Tanmay Mohanty, winning in programmatic media is important in the platform world. “Digital marketers are being exposed to the power of data, and they want to embrace it more fully across advertising channels. At Publicis, we invest ahead in training our talent. And so our talent who are certified by The Trade Desk can help marketers drive real-time campaigns with qualified reach and accuracy while transparency is an effort in the same direction,” he said.
