This global market research report, presents a detailed analysis of key vendors like, Apple, Google, Hulu, Netflix, and YouTube. It also segments the global video services market on the basis of technology (video streaming and video on demand), business model (advertising, subscription, DTO, and others), and geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Global market overview for video services

Video services refer to video on demand (VOD) and video streaming services offered by digital content providers. VOD services allow users to access video content on demand either through streaming services or over-the-top (OTT) video services. The revenue is generated from the fee earned by VOD service providers through advertisements, subscriptions, and download to own (DTO) services. The global market for video services is affected by factors like the extensive adoption of free-to-view online video streaming. Since free internet TV services are available in several regions through a public network, the revenue-generating a capacity of paid-service vendors is greatly hampered. As a result, these vendors have been compelled to include additional features and customization services to attract customers and retain their customer base. Online video streaming websites like Hulu, Netflix, and YouTube in the US and the UK are very popular across geographies as they allow viewers to stream videos and content for free, without any time and location barriers. According to the research carried out by Technavio’s market research analysts, the global market for video services will experience profound growth during the estimated period and will post an impressive CAGR of more than 24% by 2020.

In terms of geography, the Americas is estimated to retain its dominating hold over the market until the end of 2020 owing to the substantial revenue generating capacity of the North American market. North America is considered to be the innovator of VOD services and has the largest market for video services. The vendor’s focus on premium licensing, local content production, and improving customer relationships will result in the high demand for video services in this region during the estimated period.

Technological segmentation and analysis of the video services market

  • Video streaming
  • VOD

At present, the VOD technology video services market segmentation dominates this market and is anticipated to retain its dominant market position until the end of 2020. VOD is preferred over video streaming services as it allows users to pay only for the channels they watch. Video streaming services are offered on online video platforms like YouTube and Netflix, which allow users to view videos and content based on either an ad-supported or subscription model. This will have a positive impact on the video services market growth.

Segmentation by business model and analysis of the video services market

  • Advertising
  • Subscription
  • DTO

Based on the video services industry analysis report, though the advertising segment dominates this market, the subscription business model segment is envisaged to dominate over all the other market segments by the end of 2020. Subscriptions are suitable for content providers that produce niche or special content. Such content has the ability to attract a large and dedicated subscriber base. For example, as of 2015, Netflix offered in-house TV series to more than 30 million paying subscribers per month.
