OTT market: The rise of the niche OTT video platforms
0ffeb2176d11d8a4afd5562f8d8f3a00.jpg?r=320926827

The mass OTT market continues to thrive as OTT video subscribers surpass two billion by 2025. It’s a tough battlefield, since Disney +, Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and Hulu are all expanding internationally by offering a mix of TV and movie content across a wide variety of genres.

However, the struggle between the deep pockets of this market giants only tell half the story. There has also been tremendous growth in specialized and thematic OTT services. This growth is fueled by a passionate audience, declining costs of technology and infrastructure and consumer demand.

The mass OTT market continues to thrive as OTT video subscribers surpass two billion by 2025. It’s a tough battlefield, since Disney +, Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and Hulu are all expanding internationally by offering a mix of TV and movie content across a wide variety of genres.

However, the struggle between the deep pockets of this market giants only tell half the story. There has also been tremendous growth in specialized and thematic OTT services. This growth is fueled by a passionate audience, declining costs of technology and infrastructure and consumer demand.

OTT Market Figures: Consumers are looking for new platforms and content

According to Parc Associates report about 2021 Consumer Tech Trends to Watch, consumers are looking for new content. They are increasingly trying new service types. Roughly 40% of US broadband households have trialed at least one OTT video service during the COVID-19 crisis.

Recent research from Ampere Analysis shows that the average online video subscriber in the US is signed up to 3.4 services. This means that there is plenty of headroom for additional SVOD growth. US households are predicted to go as high as eight separate subscriptions. Especially since cord-cutting families increase their SVOD spends.

Statista calculated the US TVOD market was worth $1.9 billion in 2020. This results in a 23.5% increase year-on-year.

If we look at the success of our customers, the market numbers underpin both, the growth in the use of OTT streaming services and the need for niche platforms among consumers.

DRM protection: This is how you can encrypt your videos

DRM protection. DRM is the abbreviation for Digital Rights Management. With DRM protection, you can prevent your (video) content from being stolen, copied or ripped off. DRM protection is, in example, applied to streaming videos, streaming music or purchased ebooks. For example, if you have purchased an e-book, you can not copy it yourself and share it with others.

This is of course very important for OTT websites where you can watch paid video content (Netflix or YogaTV).
