Middle East and North Africa OTT TV and Video Forecasts

Middle East and North Africa OTT TV and Video Forecasts

The North American SVOD sector is by far the most mature in the world, with 112 million SVOD subscribers to movie and TV episode platforms by end-2016. However, there is plenty of growth left in the sector. The SVOD total is forecast to climb to 171 million by 2022 – up by 59 million on 2016 or by 53%.

Simon Murray, Principal Analyst at Digital TV Research, said: “It is important to stress that these figures are gross – many homes take more than one SVOD platform, especially in the US. That explains why we forecast 132% SVOD penetration of US TV households by 2022.”
