IPTV Set-top Box Worldwide Vendor Forecast

In a new study that tracks the IPTV Set-top Box (STB) market growth and market share in 4 regions and globally, Motorola shows gathering strength through acquisitions while Chinese company Yuxing emerges as strong contender in this young market, scheduled to reach $10.9 billion in 2009.

By examining the top five STB suppliers in each of 4 regions plus globally, totaling over 20 companies, the report focuses on key STB features by region, pricing, demand of top service providers, and breakdown of shipments by MPEG 2, MPEG 4 and/or DVR (Digital Video Recorder) technology.

Additionally, by examining the installed base of each of the top 5 STB suppliers in each region, the report projects the upside/downside prospects for each of the top 20 suppliers, based on the projected capex expenditures of the top service providers in each region. The forecast is based on subscriber and growth information from over 360 service providers worldwide.

�Industry consolidation has been accelerating over the past three years, meaning small and mid-size STB companies alike have to create new strategies and partnerships to survive,� states Bob Larribeau, IPTV Director at MRG. �To address that, this report shows profiles of companies producing STBs as well as other IPTV products.�

In recent months, one reason for the intensified race for STB dominance has become the importance of owning and controlling the �home gateway� as a major step in controlling new multi-platform services in the home.

Given the M&A activity in all the supplier sectors, such as Motorola�s purchase of Kreatel (STB manufacturer) and Broadbus (VOD system supplier), the report examines other STB sector leader-companies that also have multiple-product positions in the IPTV STB industry. Companies examined include Motorola, Pace, Scientific Atlanta, Amino, Yuxing, Sagem, Siemens, Thomson, I3Micro, Oki, Samsung and twelve others.
