Although DRM technology has seen huge adoption in the video, gaming, and eBooks segments, it is losing ground in the music industry. Video game publishers are increasingly investing in DRM controls to prevent content piracy, and to restrict users from sharing games or moving to digital distribution channels.

The growing market for Video on Demand (VoD) services, which entails streaming on an interactive basis, is resulting in greater investments in content delivery platforms. Content owners are exploring newer avenues for monetization of video content including subscription, advertisements, online rental, and pay per video.

With the advent of streaming and on-demand music services, users can choose not to store and carry their music, and can access music like a service as and when required. Cloud based gaming is gaining traction in the casual games segment, with serious gamers still preferring to own games in physical formats.
