Streaming, on-demand video, and connected television advertising all show higher growth rates than advertising in the other segments. Revenue in this segment increased by 100% YoY in the fourth quarter. Young people are increasingly attracted to video content, and PubMatic may be one of the industry’s growth beneficiaries in this direction.
Compared to the previous years, in which internet services demand soared because of COVID-19, PubMatic expects growth to be less rapid in 2021. Revenues will be between $ 180 million and $ 185 million (+ 21 – 24%) by the end of the current business year. An adjusted EBITDA margin of 25 – 27 % is expected to be achieved.
