Global Connected Television Services Market Will Reach $3.23 Billion by 2016

FARMINGTON, Conn., Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- With the big three TV manufacturers (Sony, Panasonic, and Sharp) reporting billions in losses in FY 2011, TV manufacturers need a lifeline if they're going to stay in business. Smart TVs and connected services may provide such a rescue. The global market of services on connected TVs will reach USD $3.23 Billion in 2016. This market will represent 16.8% of the OTT video market and about 1% of the global fixed video services market. These figures correspond to overall analysis of the deployment of connected TV services, which concluded that the right conditions for rolling out new services were not yet entirely there in early 2012, so researchers do not expect to see the market really take off until 2015.


New market research available from GII anticipates that paid services will play a leading role in the development of connected TV services. Worldwide paid services will represent 59% of the market for video services on connected TV.

World Television Market

The television sector is facing a profound restructuring, as players from formerly disparate sectors, such as TV, Internet and equipment vendors converge on the market. We are indeed currently nearing the end of a double phenomenon known as cordcutting (in which consumers will combine free access to linear television via digital terrestrial and satellite with a fee-consumption via OTT services) and cord-shaving (in which consumers will scrap their paid cable and IPTV plans for low cost OTT offers or a limited consumption of VOD services). Given the pioneer position of the United States with respect to attractive OTT service offerings, IDATE believes that they will remain the largest market for connected TV services, harboring up to 61% of the total market.

In this report, IDATE monitors the market trends affecting the market through a three level approach providing end user devices & video services market data, highlighting innovation pulses and key players' moves.
