OTT (over-the-top) services refer to digital content delivery platforms that provide streaming media content directly to users over the Internet, bypassing traditional cable or satellite providers. These services include a wide range of video streaming platforms as well as audio streaming platforms. OTT services offer a wide range of on-demand content, allowing users to access movies, TV shows, music, and more on various devices such as smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, and computers. Convenience, flexibility, and personalized content selection have driven the widespread adoption of OTT services, transforming the way people consume entertainment.

The rapid expansion of high-speed internet connectivity and the extensive adoption of smartphones has created a conducive environment for the growth of OTT services in the GCC. Concurrent with this, with an expanding population of tech-savvy consumers demanding flexible and personalized content consumption, there is a surging adoption of OTT platforms that offer a diverse range of on-demand content, spanning from movies and TV shows to original programming, catering to individual preferences and schedules. Moreover, the increasing presence of international and regional players investing in creating region-specific content is contributing to the rising appeal of these services. In addition to this, the COVID-19 pandemic has accentuated the demand for digital entertainment avenues, as lockdowns and social distancing measures prompted a surge in home-based media consumption, which, in turn, is presenting remunerative opportunities for market expansion in the region.

GCC OTT Services Market Trends/Drivers:

The proliferation of high-speed internet connectivity

The GCC countries have witnessed a rapid expansion of high-speed internet infrastructure in recent years. This growth is attributed to substantial investments in advanced telecommunications networks and 4G/5G technology deployment. This enhanced connectivity has created a seamless environment for streaming high-quality content without buffering or interruptions, making it feasible for users to access and enjoy OTT services on various devices, creating a positive outlook for market expansion. In line with this, the growing availability of robust and reliable internet connections across rural areas has opened new avenues for content consumption, attracting a larger audience base to OTT platforms and strengthening the market growth.

Increasing demand for personalized content consumption

The discernible transition in consumer preferences towards customized content consumption serves as a pivotal catalyst for the growth of the OTT services market in the GCC region. Modern audiences increasingly seek autonomy in selecting their viewing content and timing, contributing to a rising demand for OTT platforms. These platforms offer extensive libraries encompassing a broad spectrum of genres, languages, and formats, enabling users to individualize their viewing experiences. Furthermore, the utilization of advanced algorithms and content recommendation systems by OTT services facilitates a more personalized user engagement, thereby heightening their appeal over traditional linear television options.
