Until now, the market for IPTV subscriptions has been relatively small compared to other content distribution technologies – and with a substantial portion of the business based in China. Looking forward, researchers are predicting a boom in subscriptions and an IPTV market poised for significant growth. A recent Zion Research report suggests the global IPTV market will grow in value from $34 billion in 2015 to $93 billion in 2021; approximately 18% CAGR in the period.
A new IPTV scenario is developing: A wide and evolving variety of distribution networks, device types and security requirements involved in delivering a premium television experience require next generation technologies for delivering content. Thus, the correct technology and solutions must be available to enable operators to reduce operational complexity and cost, boost their ability to swiftly launch new offerings, and maximize competitive edge and viewership in a connected world.
