Global Over the Top (OTT) Market to Reach US$ 1,251 Billion by 2027, Propelled by the Increasing Penetration of High-Speed Internet

December 01, 2022

The latest report by IMARC, titled “Over the Top (OTT) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, finds that the global over the top (OTT) market size reached US$ 265.1 Billion in 2021. Over-the-top (OTT) refers to a streaming service that offers content to digital users directly without the need for cables or satellite television subscriptions. Unlike traditional broadcasting mediums, OTT can be downloaded and viewed on user demand on various internet-connected devices, including smartphones, consoles, tablets, and personal computers (PCs). This service offers unlimited data streaming and allows viewers to access the content at their convenience. In recent years, OTT platforms have gained momentum as they are used for streaming music, watching educational channels, live broadcasting, advertising, and communication.

Global Over-the-Top (OTT) Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the increasing penetration of high-speed internet and the growing demand for content within the media and entertainment domain, especially after the implementation of mandatory lockdowns followed by the sudden outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Additionally, numerous industry verticals, such as government, telecom, information technology (IT), banking, servicing, financing, and insurance (BSFI), use OTT platforms for advertising purposes, thereby creating a positive market outlook. Other than this, the pricing, bundling, innovation, and availability of premium content have increased the utilization of subscription-video-on-demand (SVOD) services offered by over-the-top platforms. Besides this, the deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) by OTT service providers is propelling the market growth. In line with this, key players are using advanced technologies to analyze the consumers’ preferences and provide them with customized content. Furthermore, the prominence of various online OTT platforms with subscription-based narrowed podcasts, series, genres, music films, and television programs represents another major growth-inducing factor. Some other factors, including expanding income levels, rapid urbanization, increasing consumer expenditure, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are catalyzing the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 1.251 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 25.34% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
