Middle East and Africa SVOD Forecasts

Middle East and Africa SVOD Forecasts

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.”
