Global Set-Top Box Market

Global Set-Top Box Market

The pay TV market experienced steady growth owing to a notable shift in consumer viewing patterns to self-consumption models that facilitate viewing content at any time, on any device on the go. This market insight provides estimates for the global set-top box (STB) market that is segmented into four applications, namely, cable, Internet Protocol television (IPTV), satellite, and digital terrestrial transmission (DTT).

Overall, the market saw a high demand for hybrid boxes as the growing interest in over-the-top (OTT) services prompted a roll out of competitive business models to prevent churn-prone customers from switching to pure OTT models.

An ongoing analog switch-off in several emerging economies, refresh cycles in North America and some parts of Europe, and upgrades to advanced functionality with a richer user interface for quick search and discovery of content are driving growth of the global STB market.
