Pay TV Market By Type (Cable Television, Satellite TV, Internet Protocol Television (IPTV)) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

Pay television (TV) refers to a television broadcasting service based on consumer subscriptions. The pay TV service may be received through cable TV, satellite TV or using an internet protocol TV (IPTV). The most prominent factor fueling the pay TV market is the consistently rising number of households worldwide along with growing discretionary income of the people. With the continually growing technological advancement in the television sector, people now opt for high quality devices. This is another prominent factor supporting the pay TV industry growth. Additionally, substantial rise in the number of television channels has encouraged the consumers to opt for pay TV service. As of 2016, the number of receivable channels across the world has increased more than 40% as compared to that in 2008.

Another prominent factor bolstering the market growth is the ongoing digital television transition across different regions. In emerging economies across Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East & Africa (MEA), digital switchover is yet to be fully accomplished. As a part of digitization, majority of the consumers prefer installing satellite TV in the lieu of their immense benefits. Similarly, rising internet penetration worldwide too has untied new avenues for pay TV industry. In regions such as North America, Europe and parts of Asia Pacific, the penetration of IPTV has witnessed profound growth over the period of time. This would further spur the pay TV market growth. Nevertheless, growing penetration of internet services has also led to increase in related services such as over-the-top (OTT) content. This poses a significant threat to the overall pay TV industry.
