27 million to subscribe to IPTV service in Asia Pacific region by 2013
The number of IPTV subscribers in the Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow from about 1.5 million today to 27.4 million by 2013, according to a Frost & Sullivan report.
The report, "Asia Pacific IPTV Market," finds Hong Kong is already a mature IPTV market and is expected to be heading toward saturation by 2009.
China and India are seen as high growth markets for IPTV by 2009. By 2013, China, along with Hong Kong, is expected to contribute nearly 60 percent of the total Asia Pacific IPTV revenues. With 47.8 million subscribers, China had the largest broadband subscriber base in Asia-Pacific in 2006, out of which nearly 70 percent are residential subscribers. In Australia, IPTV is entering a crucial stage in its development, moving away from a technology under trial into full commercial deployment.
The report is being marketed by Research and Markets.
