European Growth Accelerates
Sunnyvale, CA -- Multimedia Research Group, Inc. (MRG, Inc)
announces its new semi-annual IPTV (or IP TV) forecast, "IPTV Global
Forecast 2005 - 2009: September 2005," as part of its IPTV Tracking
Service. Projecting growth from 3.7 million subscribers in 2005 to
36.9 million in 2009, the report also forecasts subscriber revenue
growth from $880 million to $9.9 billion in 2005-2009.
"IPTV is continuing to push forward in Asia and Europe, as deployments
and trials in Japan, China, and India are really starting to show
positive impact," states Bob Larribeau, MRG Senior Analyst. "The U.S.
RBOCs (Regional Bell Operating Companies) are still lagging, due to
issues that SBC and BellSouth are facing, waiting for low-cost MPEG-4
set-top boxes and Microsoft's software, and dealing with the
complexity of the system integration required. Progress in Europe is
making up most of the difference."
Based on information from over 270 IPTV carriers worldwide, the report
identifies the top carriers in each of four regions (Asia, Europe,
North America, and ROW), broken down by seven product/service segments
for 2005 to 2009 (Set-top Boxes, Video Headends, VOD Servers,
Middleware, Access Equipment, Content Protection and System
Integration). "No other report offers 28 discreet IPTV sector analyses
plus capital spending profiles of each region's top carriers" states
Gary Schultz, MRG CEO. "This forecast provides huge market
leveragability to our customers and service subscribers."
Other regional changes analyzed include:
- Growth of European IPTV leaders,
including Free (France), Fastweb (Italy), Belgacom, KPN, and Telekom
- New Set-top Box pricing
assumptions based on MPEG-4 (HD and SD).
- New developments in China, Korea,
Taiwan, Japan, and Hong Kong.
- Analysis of Per-Port Access System
pricing for four regions and globally.
- Updates on SBC and BellSouth plans
to deploy large IPTV networks in the U.S., and Verizon's use of IPTV
for VOD over its fiber network.
