Description

"Strong growth in IPTV will challenge the long-established dominance of regional satellite broadcasters in the Middle East and North Africa."

The traditional pay-TV market in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) will be worth USD4.2 billion by 2022. Competition in the region is strong; in saturated markets, over-the-top (OTT) partnerships may prove to be the key differentiator for traditional service bundles.

  • forecasts for the number of pay-TV households, services, spend and average spend per user (ASPU)
  • forecasts split by pay-TV platform: cable (analogue and digital), IPTV, pay DTT, satellite and OTT video delivered to the TV set
