Cable Subscriptions Will Decline as IPTV and Satellite Thrive, but OTT Casts a Shadow over Traditional Pay-TV Growth

The Chinese market dominates the emerging Asia-Pacific region, accounting for 59% of all connections, but the dynamics across the region vary greatly and the interplay between cable, IPTV, satellite and OTT video services will differ from country-to-country.

This report provides:

  • forecasts for the number of pay-TV households, services, spend and average spend per user (ASPU)
  • forecasts split by pay-TV platform: cable (analogue and digital), IPTV, pay DTT, satellite and OTT video delivered to the TV set
  • forecasts for seven individual countries and the emerging Asia-Pacific (EMAP) region as a whole
  • an overview of the trends and drivers in the market
  • top-level overviews of the key countries in the region.

The forecasts are informed by on-the-ground regional market experts from our topic-led research programmes and our consulting division, as well as external interviews.

In addition to the robust set of historical data, our forecasts draw on a unique and in-house modelling tool, which applies a rigorous methodology (reconciliation of different sources, standard definitions, top-down and bottom-up modelling).

Key Performance Indicators

  • Total pay-TV services
  • Connections as a percentage of households
  • Spend
  • ASPU

All of the above split by the following access technologies:

  • cable (analogue and digital)
  • IPTV
  • pay DTT
  • satellite (DTH)
  • over-the-top (OTT) video to the TV1
