NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
This study covers the state of the Latin America pay TV services market, examining main market facts as well as drivers and restraints for growth and competitive structure. Apart from these, market sizing is done for the Latin American countries of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Venezuela. In addition, an in-depth analysis of the competitive situation, including pay TV operators' market share is presented. The base year is 2011 with forecasts running through 2017. The market is further divided into technologies such as cable TV, direct-to-home, multichannel multipoint distribution service, and Internet protocol TV, as well as subscription types like analog TV, digital TV, and high definition TV.
•Pay TV services are expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of xx percent between 2011 and 2017, reaching $ xx billion in 2017.
•The most relevant drivers for this growth are competition among cable TV, Direct-To-Home (DTH), and Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) operators, an increase in service bundling, and a push of Digital TV (DTV) and High-Definition TV (HDTV) by operators.
•Moreover, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimates, all economies of Latin America are expected to grow from 2012 to 2017.
•However, lack of competition in remote areas, expensive content and long period of payback for DTH are restraints for the development of the pay TV services market.
•In addition, the forbiddance for incumbents telecommunications companies in Argentina and Mexico to offer pay TV is a restraint, although it is expected that regulators remove this barrier.
•Currently there are xx pay TV service providers in the top xx economies in the region.
•The top three groups, DIRECTV Inc., América Móvil, and Grupo Clarín, concentrate xx percent of the market in terms of revenue.
•In 2011, digitalization and high definition expansion continued as a top priority for pay TV service providers.
•Digitalization, currently at xx percent of total subscribers, is likely to reach xx percent in 2017. This will be due to the growth of DTH and IPTV (which are xx percent digital) and to the continued digitalization of cable TV networks by the main operators of each country.
•About xx million HD subscriptions were provided by 2011, and 2017 is expected to end with xx million subscriptions, or xx percent of the total.
•The HD increased adoption is a factor of the increase in penetration of HD TV Sets, of the increased availability of HD channels, of a pushed migration from SD to HD by operators, of the decrease in the cost of set-top-boxes and of the switch-off of Analog Terrestrial TV.
•After years of uncertainty, IPTV is being deployed by all major Telcos in the region, including Telefónica S.A., América Móvil operations (in courtiers where they are allowed), and regional competitors, such as Oi in Brazil; UNE, ETB, and Emcali in Colombia; Grupo GTD in Chile, Alestra, Iusacell, and Axtel in Mexico; and CANTV in Venezuela.
•As a result, IPTV subscribers are likely to grow from xx million in 2011 to xx million in 2017.
•However, DTH is likely to become the major technology for pay TV, with xx percent of total subscribers in 2017, followed by cable TV with xx percent.
