The global TV and video market is up $31 billion since 2008 and is currently estimated at $192 billion, with the production sector capturing the majority of revenues.
The Content Management & Distribution (CMD) market is still dependent on the distribution of linear TV channels, representing 30,000 satellite TV signals and 23,000 unique TV channels in 2013. Nevertheless, non-linear content growth continues to accelerate, including over-the-top content (OTT) and mobile video, impacting service revenues while prompting specialized CMD providers to expand their service offerings.
Subscriptions to satellite pay-TV reached 196 million homes in 2013 and revenues topped $97 billion. While key performance indicators of the sector continued to grow, a slight slowdown was observed, largely attributable to the lack of dynamism in mature markets. Emerging markets now account for 60% of global subscribers, as well as nearly 100% of subscription growth.
