Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “One of the latest trends being witnessed in the market is the integration of smart STBs with smart TVs and media players. Instead of purchasing a separate smart STB or dongle, users can buy a smart TV that is integrated with a smart STB, which allows them to directly connect to the internet, stream media, and access subscribed content. This could be a threat to companies that only produce smart STBs for the retail market. To overcome this threat, companies can tie up with smart TV manufacturers and supply them with smart STBs.”

According to the report, the growth of the Global Smart STB and Dongle market is driven by several factors, a major one being the development of technologically advanced devices. Vendors in this market are constantly creating innovative and updated devices by reducing the form factor and increasing capability.

Further, the report states that one of the key challenges in this market is the high cost of STBs and dongles. The vendors price these devices high as they make heavy investments in the R&D of such products.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
