Global IPTV revenues to nearly double by 2016

The worldwide IPTV market continued to see strong growth in terms of subscribers and revenues in 2012, thanks particularly to maturing markets in Asia like China and South Korea, according to new figures from US firm Multimedia Research Group (MRG).

China is described as now having the most IPTV subscribers of any country worldwide, and is expected to retain this position over the next four years as service providers continue to underline their commitment to rolling out broadband and IPTV.

As a result, global IPTV service revenues are expected to nearly double between 2012 and 2016, rising from US$ 29.1bn in 2012 to US$ 56.8bn in 2016, giving a compound annual growth rate of 18%.
