Global IPTV subs to pass 100mn this year

The number of subscribers to managed IPTV services will pass the 100mn mark in 2013 and go on to 181mn in 2017, according to new forecasts from Pyramid Research.

The three largest country markets (China, France and the US) are each thought to have had over 10mn IPTV subscribers by the end of 2012, and together accounted for just over half (53%) of the global subscription base.

The Asia-Pacific region accounted for 45% of the worldwide total at the end of 2012, with 38.2mn subscribers, and is expected to remain the world’s largest IPTV market for the foreseeable future.

“Between 2012 and 2017, Pyramid Research forecasts that global IPTV revenue will increase at a 16 percent CAGR, reaching US$ 44bn at the end of the period,” said Guillermo Hurtado, Associate Analyst at Pyramid Research.
