Key Questions This Study Will Answer
- Is the market growing? How long will it continue to grow and at what rate?
- Are the existing competitors structured correctly to meet customer needs?
- Is this an industry or a market? Will these companies/products/services continue to exist or will they be acquired by other companies? Will these products/services become features in other markets?
- What are the current pricing trends in the market, and how are competitors continuing to provide value-priced products?
- What technical trends, including encoding technologies, are shaping the marketplace today? What trends are on the horizon, and what does this mean for future product strategy?
- What factors are customers considering when choosing new equipment and timing upgrades, and what does this mean for global growth strategies for vendors?
- Although business models remain uncertain and appetite for new investment in major markets remains low, continued digitization of workflows and skyrocketing demand for over the top content (both on-demand and live), continuing to drive double-digit growth for the market.
- The Americas remain the strongest region for the market in terms of current and future revenue streams. This is driven by factors such as maturity of content licensing and advertising business models, high penetration of portable devices and competitive pressures to retain subscribers in the face of growing popularity of online video services.
- Asia-Pacific, though the smallest market today, is on a path of rapid digitization, infrastructure development and device proliferation, which propels it to having the highest CAGR across any region during the forecast period.
- Though currently faced with significant challenges spanning geopolitical instability and a crippling economy, the EMEA region is expected to start investing in second-generation deployments from 2014 onwards, thus shoring up revenues and achieving a CAGR of nearly percent over the forecast period.
- Software form factors, cloud-based deployment and SaaS-based transcoding services are all continuing to grow in relevance, driving vendor agility, innovation, and total market revenues. While market consolidation activity continues, 2012 witnessed a spurt of new market entrants joining the M&E transcoding fray to capitalize on growth opportunities to continue to position themselves as one-stop-shop vendors of video compression and delivery technology to the specific verticals they serve.
- As MPEG-4 emerges as the de-facto video compression standard for Internet video delivery, the focus of the value proposition for this market is evolving. Where once, vendors differentiated on their ability to connect all the dots in the workflow from a format translation perspective, there is now growing emphasis on operational factors like speed, quality, automation and reliability.
- There is also a growing emphasis on whole-media considerations such as audio quality and scalability (especially with multiple language tracks), handling and display of metadata and closed captioning, targeted advertisement delivery, analytics, personalized content discovery, and transrating/grooming to manage network bandwidth.
- Broader solutions such as media asset management, non-linear editing, online video platforms and content delivery networks, which offer integrated transcoding functionality, are to some extent challenging the pure transcoding market. While some of these solutions use commercial transcoding products to power their offerings, many continue to leverage in-house solutions or open source code libraries. SHOW LESS READ MORE >
