The Opportunity ahead for Video DRM 2016 to 2021

Over 300 million more devices will require DRM protection licenses over the next 5 years

“The global market for customers which require DRM in the streams is across both TVEverywhere and SVoD and this report focuses both globally where TVE are estimated regular users, and SVoD are paying subscribers.”

But of the two types of paid TV apps, TV Everywhere is starting from a far smaller base and growing faster than SVoD. TV Everywhere today is a small business, worth just $36 million in DRM license sales globally. But SVoD is where the money is to be made, because today the market is over 3 times this. The two markets together will grow at 14.1% over the next 5 years. TV Everywhere DRM will be biggest in Western Europe, with North America not far behind. In SVoD the two strongest markets are North America, and Asia Pacific, which is expected to provide 43% of the DRM sales by value, across a far higher con centration of subscribers. In Total SVoD subscribers will rise from 238 million today to $56 million by the end of 2021.
