India to be Largest DTH Market in the World, Says Frost & Sullivan
By Shankar Pandiath
According to the study conducted by Frost & Sullivan, the DTH industry will reach the 100-million subscriber mark by 2018, expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.2 percent.
The DTH market is on its exceptional growth path in India, but the Internet Protocol Television (IPTV (News - Alert)) market is lagging far behind. IPTV, still in its nascent stage, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 79.5 percent to touch the 6-million subscriber mark by 2018.
The dismal performance of IPTV markets can see stupendous growth if the current weak state of broadband penetration and poor infrastructure is restructured.
According to a Frost & Sullivan analyst, "Riding high on the digitization mandate, the DTH market is on an unprecedented growth trajectory, and India is set to become the largest DTH market in the world. Growing television penetration, emerging middle class and rising disposable income has resulted in increased spending and rising demand for quality viewing experience.”
The briefing, to be held on December 4, will benefit all stake holders, including DTH and IPTV vendors, OFC manufacturers and equipment vendors, telecom operators, set top box manufacturers and distributors, telecom operators, broadcasters, Internet Service Providers and multiple system operators.
The briefing will provide forward projections for the Indian Pay TV services market. Emerging trends in DTH and IPTV market in the Indian landscape will be the central point of briefing.
