Although there have been many launches in the last couple of years and more to come, the Middle East & Africa SVOD sector will still be very immature by 2021. Covering 28 countries in the Middle East & Africa SVOD Forecasts report, the region will have nearly 20 million paying SVOD subscribers by 2021, up from 3.7 million expected by end-2016.
Simon Murray, Principal Analyst at Digital TV Research, said: “Although the top five international players will enjoy rapid growth, they will account for less than half the region’s SVOD subscribers by 2021 – showing that, despite some signs of congestion already, there will still be room for new entrants.”
