Market Drivers & Challenges

Growth Indicators

Growing Innovations & Initiatives To Improve Digital Experiences

Over the years, there has been a rise in the innovations and initiatives in order to deliver high-quality digital experiences. The emergence of new digital solutions across the globe is further anticipated to drive the demand for video streaming services and thus propel the growth of the global video streaming infrastructure market over the forecast period.

The video streaming space is witnessing fast growth for new streaming services providers who are attempting to grab a share of the revenue from the major players such as Netflix. This growth in the number of services providers is further anticipated to boost the demand for the video streaming infrastructure over the coming years.

Rising Need For Transcoding in Video Streaming Infrastructure

In video streaming infrastructure, transcoding is critical for the delivery of high quality & smooth live streaming videos. The transcoding technique helps reformatting any codec or format to a more compatible one. Various dynamic overlays such as watermarks, logos, and sports scores, among other graphics, can be added into the videos by the use of transcoding. Moreover, transcoding helps in eradicating bitrate and formatting problems. For instance, a single HD (High Definition) video input stream at 4.5 Mbps can be converted into a lower bitrate stream at possibly 1.5 Mbps or 3 Mbps. The growing need for transcoding to deliver videos to a rising number of end-users is anticipated to boost the overall video streaming infrastructure market over the coming years.

Growing Demand For Enhanced Video Streaming Hardware

The industry has witnessed a substantial rise in the viewing time of consumers during recent years. Owing to this, there has been a rise in the demand for enhanced video streaming hardware such as switches, amplifiers, transmitters, modulators, servers, and codec units, among others. This demand is anticipated to drive the growth of the overall video infrastructure market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the high average viewing time of live video streaming is anticipated to increase the demand for better infrastructure to increase its reliability.


Bandwidth Limitations

Over the previous years, the industry has witnessed significant advancements in broadband technology, streaming media, and high-definition video. Nevertheless, the emergence of higher resolution videos is anticipated to present new bandwidth limitations, as the networks are more likely to face bandwidth crunch. The technical complexity of improving the infrastructure to support growing bandwidth needs is anticipated to hinder the growth of the video streaming infrastructure market over the coming years.

High Cost

The high cost associated with the video streaming infrastructure, such as switchers, controllers, encoders, video conversion software, and others, is anticipated to challenge the overall market growth. The hardware and software is crucial for the transmission and reception of the video or digital signals. The equipment is often available at a significantly high cost, thus attributing to the slow adoption of better-quality video streaming infrastructure.


The growing use of ISDs (Illicit Streaming Devices) and illegal streaming websites is anticipated to hamper the growth of the overall market. ISDs appear similar to set-top boxes and are preloaded with content and channels. These devices enable users to the stream video content without any security protocols such as censorship and authentication. Recently, two illegal streaming sites in the US pirated content from Hulu, Netflix, and others. This growing use of ISDs and illegal websites is anticipated to hinder the growth of organized video streaming players.

Competitive Landscape

Some of the prominent industry leaders in the global video streaming infrastructure market are Haivision, Microsoft Corporation, IBM, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., Wowza Media Systems, LLC, Plantronics, Inc.,Brightcove Inc., Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson, NVIDIA Corporation and ZTE Corporation among other prominent players.
