At present, a significant amount of OVP viewership is generated through devices such as smartphones and tablets that use a dynamic HTML player, allowing the viewers to access live or pre-uploaded material at any point of time. OVPs are also extensively being used by brands to create a market presence worldwide and provide information to their customers in an interactive manner.

The increase in internet penetration rate as well as the usage of smartphones, smart televisions (TVs), tablets and personal computers (PCs), along with the rising expenditure on online advertisements, are the key factors driving the market's growth.

The shift of consumer viewership from conventional video platforms such as cable television (TV) to OVPs has positively influenced the market growth.

Additionally, the ever-growing popularity and continuously increasing global viewership of market players such as YouTube, Dalet Digital Media Systems USA Inc, MediaMelon, and Limelight Networks are also contributing to the market's growth.
