Global Mobile TV Market: Strong Brand Name of Large Players Creates High Entry Barriers, finds TMR

The global mobile TV market is highly fragmented in nature, with the top five players holding approximately 18.0% of the overall market in 2015. The majority of the leading players are investing heavily in developing and delivering innovative mobile TV services to their customers, finds Transparency Market Research (TMR) in a new study.

The top five players are Consolidated Communications, Orange S.A., Verizon Communications Inc., Comcast Corporation, and AT&T Inc. “The brand name of multinational companies allow them to push their offerings in the market and achieve a commendable hold in the market, thereby limiting the entry of new players,” says the author of the report.

Rising Penetration of Smart devices and High-speed Data Services to Boost Mobile TV Subscriptions Globally

The proliferation of smart devices such as smartphones and tablets globally is one of the primary factors augmenting the global mobile TV market. “The vast usage of these devices has led to increase in the number of internet subscriptions and a subsequent rise in the penetration of ultra-fast data services such as 3G and 4G,” says a TMR analyst. As a result, an increasing number of users watch online TV on these devices, which is, therefore, working in favor of the market. Moreover, the aforementioned factors coupled with the growing hectic work schedule of the consumers are boosting the use of video on demand services such as YouTube and Netflix, thereby driving the market.

However, the future of the market looks bright with the increasing investments in high-speed data services in Asia Pacific.
