Since Google launched the DoubleClick Ad Exchange Platform in China in early 2012, it has brought drastic changes to the market in adopting real-time media transaction. In a recent research paper, IDC estimated that total RTB spending in China will increase significantly from USD21 million in 2012 to USD627 million in 2016 at a 145% CAGR.
