IPTV market helps to spur conditional-access system growth

The growth of alternate methods of content distribution, such as telco-offered IPTV services, is a key trend impacting the development of the conditional-access market, according to a new study from ABI Research.

According to the study, “DRM and Conditional Access,” the market for conditional-access systems surpassed $1 billion last year, led by legacy vendors NDS and Nagravision, newer players like Widevine and Verimatrix, and corporate giants such as Cisco and Sun Microsystems.

ABI Research forecasts that cable will continue to lead the pack through 2013, attaining revenues of $737 million by 2013. Telco and satellite technologies, by 2013, will reach revenues of $558 million and $410 million, respectively.

While the IPTV market had a slow start, ABI Research expects to see future conditional-access system deployments in North America, Europe and Asia, said Zippy Aima, ABI Research industry analyst.
