The Chinese State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television proposed a rule for governing set-top boxes.

Manufacturers in this region have also utilised e-commerce retailers such as Alibaba, Ali Express, Amazon, Flipkart etc., and this has propelled the growth of this market.In terms of value, the North America set-top box market is projected to be the most attractive regional market in the global set-top box market during the forecast period
