Analysis of the Global Metadata Management Solutions Market

Analysis of the Global Metadata Management Solutions Market

In this study, Frost & Sullivan examines metadata management solutions used by media and entertainment organisations in order to deliver viewer experiences at the consumption end.

The Television (TV) industry is undergoing a massive transformation. Consumer behaviours are changing; TV by appointment is a rapidly ageing business model that is giving way to the consumption of content anytime, anywhere, and on any device. The proliferation of TV Everywhere (TVE) apps and Over-the-top (OTT) service providers across the world, combined with increasing penetration of high-speed broadband and the connected devices boom, have exacerbated the need for metadata solutions globally. Search, discovery, personalisation and recommendations are fast becoming an integral part of creating engaging viewer experiences. Investments in these areas drove purchases of metadata solutions in 2014.

North America, led by the United States (US), formed the largest regional market for metadata solutions due to strategic investments. The Middle East and Asia-Pacific are smaller markets today, but are forecasted to grow rapidly during the forecast period.
