MUMBAI: Subscription based video on demand (SVoD) is rising persistently and will draw a level with broadcast TV globally by 2023 in terms of viewing hours per day. According to a report from Rethink TV research, SVoD will surpass traditional TV viewing soon after.

The report forecasts SVoD usage in all the regions as well as highlights the differences between AVoD dominated Asian market and SVoD-crazy US and European market. The research sees 478 million SVoD subscribers today growing to 743 million by 2023.

China will have the most SVoD subscribers by 2023 although North America will still drive the largest dollar volume. The report also forecasts the US market reaching 236.6 million subscriptions by the end of 2023, from a base today of some 146.5 million.

“Europe and Asia will be neck and neck in SVoD revenues by 2023, but with far fewer subscribers in Europe, each paying significantly more than those in Asia, a region dominated by frighteningly large Advertising VoD streaming numbers,” it said.

Outside China, Netflix will continue to lead in SVoD in subscribers numbers. The streaming giant will make up 194 million SVoD customers out of 743 million globally by 2023, some 26 per cent of overall global subscribers.

The report has also predicted that WarnerMedia, under its new AT&T defined, freemium strategy will emerge as the new leader in the US Market. It is predicted to reach 29.6 million SVoD homes by 2023. Disney is also likely to have multiple SVoD service types, but may struggle outside the US.

While the Asia Pacific market is highly skewed with China expected to gather 245 million SVoD subscribers, the average spend will be just $2 to $3 a month. Latin  American market will see competition among Netflix, America Movil’s Claro TV and Televisa’s Blim.

“Europe will be a mishmash of different approaches with pure-play US operators like Netflix and Amazon now established, US studios beginning to stake a claim, and local broadcasters ganging up to challenge them. The region has its own pure play SVoD players also such as Maxdome, Sky, Zattoo, and Rakuten TV,” it stated.
