Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The online segment is experiencing growth owing to an increasing internet penetration. A growing number of the population are becoming tech savvy and are venturing into the online sector. One of the major innovations is increased cloud storage capacity, which allows vendors to upload more high-quality Blu-ray content. On an average, Blu-ray videos consume 12 times more storage space compared to the traditional DVD quality. Therefore, increasing the available cloud storage space will only raise customer retention levels and profit margins.”
According to the report, due to technological obsolescence, the price of existing technology will depreciate in the future, making it an affordable option for a large population. The early adopters of the technology are upgrading to the latest Blu-ray technology. This has increased the sales of previous technologies, thus, decreasing the average selling price of the product.
Further, the report states that free internet television services are offered to subscribers in multiple regions through a public network. The availability of free internet television services is directly hindering revenue of paid services, thus, hindering the Blu-ray market.
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.
