The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Conditional Access System (CAS) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global conditional access system (CAS) market size reached US$ 4.5 Billion in 2021. A conditional access system (CAS), or pay-per-view service, refers to a technological solution that allows access to specific users who have paid for those programs. It secures a communication and broadcast network and limits the access of media and data content to consumers. It is generally installed in digital set-top boxes, which help prevent unauthorized access and intrusion to audio and video content. It also comprises several systems, such as a subscriber authorization system (SAS), a security module, and a subscriber management system (SMS) that encode the program signal from multiple vendors and offer customized access to digital television (TV) subscribers. Owing to these properties, CAS is gaining traction among consumers worldwide.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
Global Conditional Access System (CAS) Market Trends:
The market is primarily driven by rapid urbanization and the escalating demand for hybrid set-top boxes across the globe. This can be attributed to the benefits offered by hybrid set-top boxes as it allows the TV to be used for digital video broadcasting and perform computer-like functions via the internet. In addition, CAS solutions encourage users to pay only for the subscribed channels and services, which improves the convenience for both the user and the service provider. This, coupled with the widespread utilization of satellite TV, is further propelling the market growth. Along with this, service providers are offering video-on-demand (VOD) programs and low-cost packages to consumers, which represents another major growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, several technological advancements, such as the development of cloud-based CAS solutions, are contributing to market growth. Additionally, the extensive adoption of 4K-enabled devices and ultra-high definition (UHD) is providing a positive thrust to the market growth. Furthermore, the expanding telecommunication infrastructure, increasing research and development activities (R&D) conducted by key players, and the escalating demand for pay-for-service subscriptions are also creating a positive market outlook. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 7.5 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
