Worldwide IPTV Growth Forecast

Multimedia Research Group, Inc. (MRG, Inc) announced its new semi-annual IPTV forecast as part of its IPTV Tracking Service. Projecting growth from 3.7 million subscribers in 2005 to 36.9 million in 2009, the report also forecasts subscriber revenue growth from $880 million to $9.9 billion in 2005-2009.

�IPTV is continuing to push forward in Asia and Europe, as deployments and trials in Japan, China, and India are really starting to show positive impact,� states Bob Larribeau, MRG Senior Analyst. �The U.S. RBOCs are still lagging, due to issues that SBC and BellSouth are facing, waiting for low-cost MPEG-4 set-top boxes and Microsoft�s software, and dealing with the complexity of the system integration required. Progress in Europe is making up most of the difference.�

Based on information from over 270 IPTV carriers worldwide, the report identifies the top carriers in each of four regions (Asia, Europe, North America, and ROW), broken down by seven product/service segments for 2005 to 2009 (Set-top Boxes, Video Headends, VOD Servers, Middleware, Access Equipment, Content Protection and System Integration).
