The low assurance that the advertisement will be viewed and effective is the major obstacle for the TV advertising market. Numerous individuals change the channel when an advertisement comes up during the show break. Additionally, individuals, these days use smartphones during advertisements until their show returns, which results in less consideration towards the promotions. According to a survey published by VIEO Design, 64% of the people find ads annoying and intrusive. For instance, recently after the merger of Vodafone and Idea, an ad commercial was released to announce the VI logo. Since the release of the commercial, it was aired on every single TV channel on a recurrent mode which led to irritation among the TV audience leading to less frequency of viewing of the ad. Thus, such factors restrict the growth of the TV advertising market.

Programmatic TV advertising is increasingly becoming popular in the TV advertising market. Programmatic advertising is the process of purchasing digital advertisements automatically leveraging algorithms and machines. It eliminates human intervention in the advertisement purchasing process, making it quick and less expensive. With the help of programmatic advertising, an organization can publish as many ads a company wants on as many platforms as they desire. Also, it addresses the requirement for expanded reach of ads as utilization patterns have changed among crowds. Programmatic advertising is associated with programmatic TV sets which allow the audience to watch OTT platforms on TV. For instance, when a person is watching a movie or show on a programmatic TV set, an ad appears in the video player itself. These ads are called in-stream ads which can run as many times as an organizer wants, thus, causing an increase in reach towards the target audience.

The increased use of over-the-top (OTT) media services is expected to drive the growth of the TV advertising market. OTT offers reach and retention as the video advertisement is 100% viewable and non-skippable. For instance, on OTT platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney+, advertisements are non-skippable and is 100% viewed by the subscriber. These advertisements are known as Subscription Supported Video-on-Demand Services. When such ads are viewed by the audience, it reinforces the brand’s message. As per IPG Mediabrands Magna reports, OTT video ad spending is growing at a faster rate than any other channel and expected to reach $5 billion by the end of 2020. Thus, the increased use of over-the-top (OTT) media services is driving the market for TV advertising.
