OTT Video Services Growing to $20 Billion by 2014

2010 was an eventful year for the Over-the-Top (OTT) video market. There have been major developments in the retail segment, the Service Provider (SP) segment and the Internet segment. Some of these developments have been successful, while others are still a work in progress.

According to the latest market study by MRG, Inc., they now forecast that the global growth of OTT video services will exceed $1 billion in 2010 and $20 billion in 2014 -- based on over 40 OTT service operators and device vendors profiled in their study.

"This is the most complete available analysis of connected OTT smart devices offering both live and on-demand video services," says Mike Galli, MRG Analyst. "It's a comprehensive guide to the next generation of smart home devices for video services connected via the Internet."

Some of the case studies presented actually show how these services enhance the incumbent IPTV operator's broadband revenue with relatively no or low investment, for smaller operators; and with various levels of CapEx for larger Operators.

Most of the results were based on updates of the early OTT trials, determining how service providers assessed the pros, cons and the ROI results.

Smart OTT video devices analyzed includes OTT set-top boxes, game consoles, smart TV sets, smartphones, OTT PCs, and Blu-ray devices.

By tracking the OTT video ARPU (Average Revenue per Unit) for each smart device, the report projects total OTT video revenues broken into four global regions from 2010-2014.

OTT content preference by consumers is also probed, based on international consumer research. Besides stating their favorite OTT viewing devices, consumers clearly express their preference for recent movies & TV shows and other kinds of niche video content, reflecting how quickly consumer preferences are changing.

Some of the more telling results include why smart device usage varies significantly depending on which rooms of the home they are in and who is using them.

Demand for Quantum Computing as a Service

The enterprise demand for quantum computing is still in its early stages, growing slowly. As the technology becomes more usable, we may see demand evolve beyond scientific applications. The global quantum computing market is forecast to grow from $1.1 billion in 2022 to $7.6 billion in 2027, according to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). That's a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 48.1 percent. The forecast includes base Quantum Computing as a Service, as well as enabling and adjacent Quantum Computing as a Service. However, this updated forecast is considerably lower than IDC's previous quantum computing forecast, which was published in 2021, due to lower demand globally. Quantum Computing Market Development In the interim, customer spend for quantum computing has been negatively impacted by several factors, including: slower than expected advances in quantum hardware development, which have delayed potential return on inve

AI Semiconductor Revenue will Reach $119.4B

The Chief Information Officer (CIO) and/or the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) will guide Generative AI initiatives within the large enterprise C-Suite. They may already have the technical expertise and experience to understand the capabilities and limitations of Gen AI. They also have the authority and budget to make the necessary investments in infrastructure and talent to support Gen AI initiatives. Enterprise AI infrastructure is proven to be expensive to build, operate and maintain. That's why public cloud service provider solutions are often used for new AI use cases. AI Semiconductor Market Development Semiconductors designed to execute Artificial Intelligence (AI) workloads will represent a $53.4 billion revenue opportunity for the global semiconductor industry in 2023, an increase of 20.9 percent from 2022, according to the latest worldwide market study by Gartner. "The developments in generative AI and the increasing use of a wide range AI-based applications in data c

Global Public Cloud Spending to Reach $1.35T

Most digital transformation is enabled by cloud solutions. Worldwide spending on public cloud services is forecast to reach $1.35 trillion in 2027, according to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). Although annual spending growth is expected to slow slightly over the 2023-2027 forecast period, the market is forecast to achieve a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.9 percent. "Cloud now dominates tech spending across infrastructure, platforms, and applications," said Eileen Smith, vice president at IDC . Public Cloud Services Market Development IDC believes that most organizations have adopted the public cloud as a cost-effective platform for hosting enterprise applications, and for developing and deploying customer-facing solutions.
