Besides this, rising popularity of over-the-top (OTT) platforms is creating a conducive environment for growth in the global set-top box market. This trend is increasingly becoming prevalent in countries such as India, China, and Japan.

To capitalize on this trend, manufacturers are launching set-top boxes in collaboration with OTT platforms such as Amazon Prime and Discovery+ to gain a competitive edge. As a result, sales of OTT device set-top boxes are expected to gain traction in the forthcoming years.

Further, governments in various countries are encouraging the adoption of smart technologies and devices. For instance, the Cable Television Networks Act in India mandates the adoption of set-top boxes to prevent the broadcasting of illegal channels and provide a better video quality to residents living in rural areas.

As per FMI, the U.S. is expected to emerge as a lucrative pocket in the North America set-top box market. Growth is attributable to rising demand for IPTV set-top boxes and increasing popularity of OTT platforms in the country.

“Ongoing advancements in digital broadcasting technology are expected to create lucrative opportunities for players operating in the global set-top box market. In addition to this, growing popularity of OTT platforms through social media is expected to continue pushing sales of set-top boxes over the forecast period,” says an FMI analyst.
