IPTV Providers Are Projected to Take an 18% Share of a $304 Billion Market by 2018, According to ABI Research
SINGAPORE --(Business Wire)--
The worldwide Pay-TV market grew at a steady pace in 2012 generating
$238 billion by end-of-year, up from $223 billion in 2011, according to
ABI Research's (News - Alert) "Pay-TV ARPU and Revenues" Market Data. The global Pay-TV
market is expected to generate $304 billion in 2018 with a CAGR of 4%.
Service revenue contributions from cable TV are proving mixed. The
Asia-Pacific region saw service revenue growth due to underlying
increase in subscriptions. However, cable TV operators in North America
are experiencing a decline in service revenue as result of a contracting
subscriber base, despite cable TV innovations such as DVR and HDTV.
Globally, IPTV (News - Alert) is gaining market share year-over-year while the rest of
the Pay-TV platforms are slowly contracting. IPTV service revenue market
share increased from 10% in 2011 to 11.5% in 2012. Cable TV market share
dropped to 47% in 2012 from 48.5% in 2011 while satellite TV market
share dropped around 1%. "Availability of super-fast broadband networks
and bundle offers from telcos over high-speed networks are driving th
growth of IPTV adoption. IPTV market share is expected to increase to
18% in 2018, to generate $53 billion in revenue," according to Jake
Saunders, VP and practice director of core forecasting.
"Based on ABI Research's global Pay-TV market share analysis, satellite
giant DirecTV ranks top in terms of Pay-TV service revenue across all
platforms. In the global IPTV sector, Verizon (News - Alert) is the top ranked IPTV
operator with the highest service revenue," said Khin Sandi Lynn,
