Global Conditional Access System (CAS) Market to Reach US$ 9.7 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Rising Adoption of Hybrid Set-Top Boxes

March 02, 2023 | Technology & Media

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Conditional Access System (CAS) Market Report by Solution Type (Smartcard CAS, Card-Less CAS), Application (Television Broadcasting, Digital Radio, Internet Services), and Region 2024-2032,” finds that the global conditional access system (CAS) market size reached US$ 5.3 Billion in 2023. Conditional access system (CAS), also known as pay-per-view service, refers to a program designed to secure a communication and broadcast network. It works by limiting the access of media and data content to users and consists of various systems, including subscriber authorization systems (SAS), security modules, and subscriber management systems (SMS). These systems encode the program signal from different vendors and offer personalized access to digital television (TV) subscribers. CAS is mainly used by content providers, such as pay-TV operators, to provide access to protected content to only those subscriber devices that meet specific conditions. As a result, CAS is widely installed in digital set-top boxes to prevent unauthorized access to audio and video content.

Global Conditional Access System (CAS) Market Trends:

The rising adoption of hybrid set-top boxes that facilitate digital video broadcasting in TVs and allow them to perform computer-like functions via the internet represents the primary factor driving the market growth. Besides this, the rapid shift from analog to digital transmission and elevating sales of ultra-high-definition (UHD) TVs are other major growth-inducing factors. Additionally, CAS solutions are gaining immense traction among users and service providers as they facilitate individuals to pay for the subscribed channels and services only, thereby delivering enhanced convenience. In line with this, the widespread availability of low-cost packages and video-on-demand (VOD) programs offered by service providers to users has augmented the product demand. Furthermore, recent technological advancements, such as the introduction of cloud-based CAS solutions, which are downloadable versions that offer dynamic security solutions to the operator network, have propelled market growth. Apart from this, the growing popularity of over-the-top (OTT) platforms and internet streaming services among individuals due to increasing internet penetration rates and rapid urbanization has accelerated product adoption rates. Other factors, including the surging usage of 4K-enabled devices and satellite TVs, improvements in the telecommunication infrastructure, rising consumer preferences for pay-for-service subscriptions, and ongoing research and development (R&D) activities, are also creating a favorable market outlook. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 9.7 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 6.8% during 2024-2032.
