By 2015, the number of IPTV subscribers globally is expected to grow from 53 million in 2011 to 105.1 million, with a CAGR of 18.7%, whereas the service revenue for the world IPTV market will grow at a CAGR of 20% to reach USD 45.3 billion. With certain regions such as Europe and North America having seen very good IPTV subscriber growth, there are still areas like Latin America and Southeast Asia that have not got under way with IPTV and where major government and regulatory issues still need to be dealt with.
IPTV service providers tend to move away from pure-play IPTV services and add new and innovative ways to deliver content to their customers, which enables them with more flexibility necessary to meet new threats from competitive pay-TV services.
