The revenue generated by the traditional pay-TV market in emerging Asia–Pacific (EMAP) will peak at USD29.5 billion in 2022, and will then gradually decline for the rest of the decade. This forecast report analyses the relative strengths of IPTV, cable, satellite and OTT video as they compete for a share of consumer spending in the region.

This report provides:

  • forecasts for the number of pay-TV households and services, the number of premium OTT video users, their retail revenue (spend) and average spend per user (ASPU)
  • forecasts split by pay-TV platform: cable (analogue and digital), IPTV, pay DTT, satellite (DTH) and operator OTT; operator OTT and third-party OTT are split by category of OTT video service – linear channels, linear events, TVoD (rental), TVoD (ownership) and SVoD
  • forecasts for eight individual countries and the EMAP region as a whole.

6.Executive summary
The traditional pay-TV retail revenue in emerging Asia–Pacific will peak in 2023
Cable TV retail revenue will stop growing during the forecast period, the growth in satellite revenue will stall and IPTV will account for future revenue growth
Retail revenue from both traditional pay TV and OTT video will grow in almost all countries in EMAP, but OTT video will now account for the majority of growth
Regional trends
Geographical coverage: traditional pay-TV penetration varies significantly by country; the household penetration of premium operator OTT services is low
Traditional pay-TV take-up will saturate during the forecast period; operator OTT services will generate almost as much revenue as traditional pay TV by 2024
OTT video retail revenue will be dominated by SVoD because many linear services are being bundled free of charge, rather than paid for separately
Customers will migrate away from cable and satellite and towards IPTV; new revenue growth will come from IP services
SVoD will continue to be the most important type of OTT video service in the region during the forecast period, primarily due to China’s scale
Country-level trends
China: China Mobile’s IPTV licences have created a step change in the market: the future for IPTV is positive and cable TV will flounder
 China: BAT have boosted the number of paying subscribers to their OTT video services; there will be 397 million OTT video users in 2024 as a result

 


19.India: the New Tariff Order creates a less favourable commercial market for pay-TV providers, so they are looking towards OTT for revenue growth
India: OTT video continues to be consumed primarily for free; the future of paid-for services depends on how operators approach bundling
Indonesia: the second- and third-largest players are likely to drive price competition, but the incumbent, Telkom, will grow its customer base
Indonesia: bundling OTT video services alongside telecoms services for free
is the norm
Malaysia: Astro still dominates the pay-TV and OTT market, and Telekom Malaysia’s future role in TV is unclear
Malaysia: free bundling of OTT video services is commonplace
