Global Pay TV Market to Grow at 1% during 2024-2032, Bolstered by Increasing Utilization of Data Analytics

September 28, 2021 | Technology & Media

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Pay TV Market Report by Type (Postpaid, Prepaid), Technology Type (Cable TV, DTT and Satellite TV, Internet Protocol Television (IPTV)), Application (Commercial, Residential, and Others), and Region 2024-2032”, finds that the global pay TV market reached a value of US$ 188.2 Billion in 2023. Pay TV, also known as subscription television, includes pay-per-view premium content delivered on-demand or at a scheduled time. It is a means of providing additional and specialized programming for a fee. It also requires the user to lease a proprietary coaxial cable or satellite dish network set-top box. Pay TV signals are encrypted to prevent theft of services, unlike over-the-air (OTA) TV signals that can be accessed freely by using an antenna. In recent years, pay TV has gained immense popularity worldwide as the service providers offer bundled packages to viewers for omnichannel accessibility across both OTT and pay TV.

Global Pay TV Market Trends:

Pay TV offers numerous benefits, including scalability, cost-effectiveness, and transparency of operations. It also provides a combination of broadband and broadcast services to ensure the efficient distribution of mass and personalized content for consumers. It further creates a single convergent stack for end-to-end solutions that combine customer management, billing, payment and order functionalities. On account of this, the demand for pay TV has escalated across the globe. Besides this, the utilization of data analytics that helps gain insights regarding audience preferences also represents one of the significant growth-inducing factors. Channels that cater to specific audiences use advertisements and user-generated subscriptions integrated with cloud computing and analytical solutions to leverage the ‘as-a-service’ business model and provide improved content results. Some of the other factors, such as rapid urbanization, widespread adoption of integrated broadband broadcasting (IBB) systems and the increasing availability of high definition (HD) and ultra-high definition (UHD) content through satellite networks, are also providing a positive impact on the market. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 1% during 2024-2032.
