Even as India witnessing a boom in OTT market thanks to players such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar, Eros Now among others, a latest report has predicted that global consumer and advertising spend on TV and video will grow from $490B in 2017 to $559B in 2022, an increase of $69B.
Spend on OTT video will account for 90 per cent of this growth, according to Strategy Analytics’ Television & Media Strategies (TMS) report, ‘TV’s Transformation: A Unified TV and Video Market Perspective.’
It said consumer spend and digital video ad revenue from OTT video services such as YouTube, Facebook, iTunes, Google Play, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, DirecTV Now, NOW TV, Maxdome, iflix, and other online video services will double over the forecast period, reaching $123B in 2022.
“OTT TV and video services will be the driving force behind future revenue,” according to Michael Goodman, Director, Television & Media Strategies, “however, traditional TV and video services should not despair too much, as they will continue to account for the majority of consumer and advertising spend for the foreseeable future.”
By 2022, consumer and advertising spend on traditional TV and video products and services globally will be over $435B, an increase of $7B from 2017, and account for nearly 78% of all TV and video revenue.
It also said that in 2022, North America will continue to be the largest TV and video market; accounting for 38.7% of global consumer and advertising spend on TV and video.
IPTV will buck the cord cutting trend in Western Europe. While cable (net loss of €987M), pay satellite (net loss of €187M), and pay DTT (net loss of €125M) will all see revenues decline over the next five years, IPTV will reach €9.9B in 2022, an increase of €1.5B.
In 2022, the Asia Pacific region will account for 23.4%% of global consumer and advertising spend on TV and video. Unlike North America and Western Europe, where consumer spend on legacy pay TV services are flat or declining, driven largely by China and India, consumer spend on legacy pay TV services will continue to see robust growth.
