Description

Video is increasingly making its way into the mobile space across developed and emerging markets. The availability of improved devices and networks combined with the prevalence of multimedia as an essential form of entertainment are all contributing to a higher level of adoption and spending on mobile video services. Pyramid Research estimates that the global number of users paying for mobile video services directly delivered to their handsets will grow five-fold between 2008 and 2014 to surpass 534m at the end of the period.

In this report, Pyramid Research analyzes the adoption and revenue opportunity for mobile video services, which include paid video clips, music videos, TV episodes, TV programming and movies. We analyze operators’ strategies through seven country case studies: Brazil, Chile, China, India, Italy, Japan and the US.

Key findings include:

  • Netbooks are a strategic tool for MNOs and OEMs alike, until the global economy recovers and users are ready — and able to afford — to migrate to more sophisticated devices.
  • Mobile video is developing at a rapid pace around the world: Pyramid Research forecasts that the number of global mobile video subscriptions will grow to 534m in 2014, reaching a penetration rate of 8.5% of total mobile subscriptions, up from the current 2.5% level.
  • Asia-Pacific will be a crucial component of the mobile video opportunity. Already markets such as Japan, Hong Kong and South Korea lead in terms of mobile video penetration of subscriptions, but we also expect important uptake in India in the next five years.
  • European markets, led by the region’s most advanced mobile video market, Italy, will also undergo major expansion.
