Research Highlights
The global content protection market is expected to reach $1.95 billion by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 2.3%. As the market is facing narrowing margins, the need to look at other revenue streams and also keep the customer committed to the vendor for their next upgrade is becoming paramount. This can be achieved by investing in R&D and focusing on expanded product portfolios. The need for vendors to look beyond traditional CAS and DRM solutions and revenue models based on number of set-top boxes installed is critical to their continued sustenance and growth. The role of watermarking in enabling a market-wide transition from a distributor-centric solution to a content owner centric solution is important to embrace the changes accompanied by the Internet-based content distribution and consumption model.
