This industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the content protection market status by product type (DRM, CAS, and watermarking), by application (internet services and media content), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Global content protection market overview

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global content protection market size will grow steadily at a CAGR of around 5% by 2021. There is an increasing preference of consumers across the globe towards IPTVs due to the convenience of watching the broadcasted shows at various timings according to their convenience. Additionally, IPTVs also offer video on demand (VOD) services that streams programs directly to the TV or through set top boxes (STBs). Satellite TVs provide customers with a range of high-quality channels received directly to their TVs. According to our market research analysts, the usage of IPTVs and satellite TVs will be one of the primary factors that will have a positive impact on the content protection market growth.

Multi-DRM provides the extension of security capabilities within the required functions to meet content protection requirements and helps in the protection of content against piracy and other forms of unauthorized uses. Additionally, it also helps users with service features such as download, pay-per-view, and other business services and secures forensic watermarking on premium content to protect against service piracy. This will increase the adoption of multi-DRM which will be one of the key content protection market trends behind the growth of this industry.
