The OTT video in Europe: trends and forecasts 2017–2022

Europe was an early adopter of OTT video services – SVoD and TVoD spend has surged and linear services will soon follow as rights, services, and availability all evolve.

5.Executive summary
6.Paid-for OTT video services’ worth will increase from EUR8.1 billion at the end of 2017 to EUR18.0 billion by 2022
7.How we classify services in this forecast
8.SVoD services will account for almost three quarters of all retail revenue growth between 2017 and 2022
9.Revenue growth will be buoyed by pay-TV providers pushing further into OTT video services; almost all countries will register double-digit CAGRs
10.Key recommendations for TV and video stakeholders
11.Regional forecasts and country comparison
12.Worldwide: Western European OTT video will thrive, but take-up in Central & Eastern Europe will struggle to gain scale in many countries
13.Western Europe: SVoD will account for 70% of consumer spend on OTT by 2022 but live streaming content will be worth EUR2.1 billion per year too
14.Western Europe: Operators’ role in launching linear services, and integrating OTT SVoD into their STBs, will significantly affect the market
15.Western Europe: Almost 20% of the OTT video spend in Ireland, Italy, Switzerland and the UK will be for linear services by 2022
16.Central & Eastern Europe: Live streaming content will account for 26% of OTT spend by 2022, primarily driven by telco sports services in Turkey
17.Central & Eastern Europe: SVoD has struggled to gain scale but OTT linear channels have established a valuable presence
18.Central & Eastern Europe: The relative importance of SVoD, TVoD and linear services varies significantly by market – Turkey is a notable outlier
19.Country forecasts
20.France: SVoD will drive continued growth in the French market; a mix of local and international players will co-exist
21.Germany: Stronger consumer disinclination to TV and video subscriptions will buoy TVoD and thus increase overall ASPU
22.Italy: A very competitive market where all key TV providers are involved in OTT will boost penetration from current low levels
23.Poland: Low OTT video penetration is a result of cheap pay-TV packages and high piracy levels
24.Spain: Investment in high-end OTT video and Spanish content will push premium OTT video revenue past EUR1 billion by 2022
25.Turkey: Turkcell and Türk Telekom have boosted linear OTT revenue but SVoD will drive future growth
