BOSTON, Massachusetts — Global IPTV subscriptions are expected to reach 102 million in 2018, with the fastest growth coming from Latin America and Africa and the Middle East, according to the newest report in the Research in Focus: IPTV series.

As a quarterly subscription or as a one-off resource, Research in Focus: IPTV offers analysis on global and regional subscription trends, as well as ARPS, pricing and revenue trends through 2018. This series of reports also provides five-year historical data and projections on IPTV for up to 60 markets around the world, with an excel document that contains the full data referenced in the report.

“Latin America and Africa and the Middle East are the smallest IPTV markets globally, with a combined estimate of 2.3% of global IPTV subscriptions at year-end 2013, or 901,000 and 1,432,000 subscriptions respectively,” says Leslie Arathoon, Research Director at Pyramid Research. These regions will also be the fastest growing with IPTV revenue in Latin America growing at a CAGR of 56.1%, far ahead of the growth rates of other regions. This is due to a projected rapid uptake of broadband services, including IPTV, in a region that previously had a low penetration rate. Africa and Middle East IPTV revenue will grow at the second fastest CAGR behind Latin America, at 22.1% between 2013-2018, she notes.
