Market Trends

London, UK, July 1, 2015--OTT TV and video revenues in Western Europe [for 15 countries] will reach US$ 13.72 billion in 2020; up from the $894 million recorded in 2010 and the $6.34 billion expected in 2015, according to a new report from Digital TV Research. 

El Segundo, Calif., June 30, 2015--Pay TV operators purchased US$ 15.3 billion worth of set-top boxes (STBs) in 2014, down from US$ 15.9 billion in 2013. This decline represents the first contraction in the market since 2002, according to IHS Inc. (NYSE: IHS), the leading global source of critical information and insight. Shipments of pay TV STBs grew slightly in 2014 to 204.7 million units, an increase of just under 1 percent from 203.1 million units in the previous year; however, such modest shipment growth failed to compensate for the effects of price erosion in this highly competitive market.
