In Q1 this year, our retail media business grew 122 per cent year-over-year, and we are excited to see increasing demand for our technology, especially here in Asia," said Criteo's EVP & general manager, growth portfolio, Geoffroy Martin. "A key component of our commerce media strategy, retail media is also an addressable market expected to grow quickly. According to McKinsey, Retail Media is a $17B market today, excluding Amazon and China, and will grow at a 22 per cent CAGR to $32 billion in 2024."

Since joining the team in March, Taro has worked with the team to drive awareness and adoption across the region. “As brands prepare for the post-cookie world, Retail Media will play a pivotal role in empowering brands who seek new addressable media opportunities in the evolving identity landscape. Combining a highly differentiated ad inventory with unique first-party data, we are confident that its availability and the strengthened capacity of our regional team will help with driving the industry forward in the years to come,” said Taro.

Globally, Criteo’s retail media solution powering over 100 retailers and 120 agency customers, and it is expected to drive nearly $700 million in media monetisation for retailers and $3.3 billion in product sales for brands in 2021, the company said.
