Stringent Government Initiatives for Mandating Digitalization of Cable TV to Escalate Global Set Top Box Market at a CAGR of 3.0%

Set Top Box Market to reach US$ 19,548.7 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.0% during 2020-2027 to reach US$ 24,530.2 million by 2027.

Government regulations on mandating the installation of set top boxes (STBs), deployment of free OS-based devices by STB vendors, and analog switch-off transition in emerging countries are among the prime factors escalating the demand for STBs.

However, several drawbacks are associated with analogue systems; determining the number of households using cable services is difficult, and only local cable operators who also work as bill collection agents are aware of the actual figure. The broadcasters, first, transmit the signals via satellite.

The multi-system operators then download these signals into their devices. Multi-system providers are now transmitting these signals to local cable operators, and cable operators are eventually responsible for transferring these signals directly to consumers' home via a variety of channels using co-axial cables.

The inability of governments to monitor the exact number of consumers using cable TVs in home is the most significant drawback faced by current analog signals. In this case, digitization enables them to know the exact amount of cable consumption. To combat this limitation, emerging countries such as China and India have mandated the use of set top boxes for cable connection.

For example, through an amendment to the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, the Government of India has made STBs compulsory since 2012. Owing to the use of digital signals, set top boxes offer a better viewing experience and help prevent broadcasting of illegal channels in India. Thus, the stringent government regulations across emerging countries for the digitalization of cable TVs are fuelling the growth of the set top box market.
