DUBLIN, IRELAND: Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "IPTV Global Forecast Report: 2009 to 2013 - Semiannual IPTV Global Forecast Report - Edition 2" report to its offering.
The November 2009 IPTV Global Forecast - 2009 to 2013 is the latest update to the earlier edition published in May 2009. It incorporates the most recent information on current IPTV deployments around the world, as well a forecast for IPTV subscribers, service revenue, and system revenue from 2009 to 2013.
In total, this report breaks down the IPTV ecosystem into nine industry segments: DSL Subscribers, IPTV Subscribers, Access Systems, Video Headend Encoders, Video-on-Demand Server Software, Set-top Boxes, Middleware, Content Protection/Digital Rights Management (CP/DRM), and System Integration and Professional Services.
In addition, this report splits the market into four regions around the world: Europe, Asia, North America and Rest of World, and also provides a global market summary. To do this, the report identifies 805 Service Providers worldwide deploying IPTV services. The number of companies has increased since the last report, since more Service Providers have launched services in the last 6 months or announced new trials. This data is frequently refreshed to ensure that duplicates are removed and that the most up-to-date numbers are used.
The new report uses the most recent information on over 800 IPTV deployments around the world, and includes a forecast for IPTV subscribers, service revenue, and system revenue from 2009 to 2013. Additionally, it forecasts over 28 discrete market sectors in 4 geographic regions.
Because the 2009 subscriber total exceeded the last forecast by 2 million, the new forecast indicates that global IPTV subscribers will grow from 28 million in 2009 to 83 million in 2013, a CAGR of 31 percent. The European region will continue to lead in IPTV deployments in 2013 with 48 percent share, followed by Asia, North America and Rest of World.
"Now that the economy seems to be improving, and Service Providers are still reporting solid growth, this Fall edition has adjusted the forecast accordingly," stated Jose Alvear, MRG IPTV Analyst. "This was done in response to the better-than-expected growth exhibited by the major Service Providers around the world in 2009."
Total service revenue for 2013 is projected at US$38 billion, also up sharply from the last forecast. The new report includes added information on strategies and new services being added to IPTV offerings. "Consumers are beginning to understand the advantages of IPTV," says Gary Schultz, MRG President.
"Simultaneously, IPTV operators are facing more competition, driving rapid investment in both infrastructure and new services." The four regions analyzed include a breakdown of capital spending, service revenue, and DSL and IPTV subscribers; and seven discrete IPTV system sectors, including Access Systems, Video Headends, Video-on-Demand, Set-top Boxes, Middleware, Content Protection/Digital Rights Management, and System Integration/Professional Services.
