Frost.com - Digital Media Research http://www.frost.com/c/10351/home.do - Digital Media Research Mon, 19 Feb 2018 19:47:53 Global Blu-ray Media and Players Market, Forecast to 2023 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=NF98-01-00-00-00 While physical discs remain a key revenue generator in the home entertainment business, the growing revenue from digital services and the rise of download and over-the-top (OTT) streaming services such as iTunes and Netflix have negatively impacted physical disc sales in the last 4-5 years. Therefore, an overall gradual decline in disc sales through the forecast period is expected. Unit shipments for the global Blu-ray players market are expected to decrease from 72.1 million in 2017 to 68.0 million in 2023, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -1.0%. Unit shipments for the global Blu-ray media market are expected to decrease from 595.0 million in 2017 to 516.0 million in 2023, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -2.3%. The rapid growth in subscribers of OTT services, and on-demand 4K and 1080p content streamed directly from the cloud, has led to the rapid rise of services like Netflix, Amazon, HBO, and Hulu. Simultaneously, the intense bandwidth requirements of 4K content formats are unable to replicate the smooth and seamless playback of 4K UHD titles. Therefore, physical Blu-ray discs are still considered one of the best options for enjoying HD content that also supports HDR and Dolby surround sound. The majority of consumers, especially in the developed markets, are increasingly turning to UHD Blu-ray players to access movie and TV show content. To meet this demand, over 250 UHD titles were released in 2017 alone.

Over-the-top (OTT) Video Services Market, India, 2017 2022 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=P9BC-01-00-00-00 The OTT video market in India is gradually becoming a mainstream entertainment destination in the midst of growing Internet users. With the rapid commoditization of data and the ongoing price wars, online video streaming is a more feasible option today than ever before. This has led to the influx of many global, local, and independent platforms in the past year that are hoping to capitalize on this vast growth opportunity in the market. As operators optimize their operations with advertising revenues, they are evolving content strategies and marketing effectively to reach the masses. The focus has shifted from the urban youth to mass market, regional audiences across multilingual backgrounds. There is a disconnect between the total addressable market of Internet users and the served market, as a majority of the population has access to erratic and slow broadband speeds. The focus on Hindi and English programs has gradually shifted toward regional content, thus catering to a larger audience. Monetization of platforms remains one of the biggest challenges for operators, as they depend on advertising for their revenue. The inclusion of regional content has paved the way for mass-market adoption as opposed to the initial niche offering. Live sports and other marquee titles going online has reiterated the growth opportunity for OTT video, attracting global Internet companies to invest and enter this lucrative market.--BEGIN PROMO--
