Factors Governing IPTV Market

The growing demand for fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) connections is a major trend being observed in the IPTV market. FTTH is observed to be well suited for IPTV, owing to the unlimited bandwidth and transmission quality of optical fiber. FTTH provides a fix access platform, to deliver high-speed broadband, which results in an enhanced user experience. Hence, service providers are increasingly offering premium content via FTTH, so as to ensure a better viewing experience.

The growing interest of telecommunication service providers in IPTV is supporting the growth of the IPTV market. Telecom companies such as Verizon Communications Inc., Vodafone Group PLC, and British Telecommunications PLC are increasingly focusing on introducing new video services. These companies are viewing IPTV as a growth opportunity, owing to its interactive multimedia capabilities. This, in turn, is leading to a stronger base for IPTV services, with all major players competing to maximize their share.

IPTV Market

With the increasing demand for bundled services, the key players in the market are increasingly diversifying their revenue streams, by offering IPTV services along with over- -the-top (OTT) and pay TV services. Thus, the emergence of new technologies and growing consumer inclination toward on-demand streaming are expected to generate promising growth opportunities for the players operating in the IPTV market, in the coming years.

IPTV Market Segmentation Analysis

Smartphones and tablets contributed the highest revenue to the IPTV market in 2017, on the basis of device type, owing to the heavy usage of such devices, globally.

People are increasingly adopting smartphones for program viewing, as these devices offer high convenience.

The nonlinear TV category is expected to witness faster growth in the IPTV market during the forecast period, based on application. This can be attributed to the high demand for online shows among users. Moreover, nonlinear TV offers convenient viewing options, including on-demand, OTT, and time-shifted services.

The enterprises category is projected to witness faster growth during the forecast period, as corporate entities are increasingly adopting IPTV systems to distribute on-demand content, event information, and archived and live news, across their corporate network.
