Sales of digital cable set-top boxes grows for second straight year

For the first time since 2000–2001, worldwide unit shipments of digital cable TV set-top boxes will grow for the second consecutive year, reports In-Stat.

Sustained North American demand for advanced or high-end digital cable set-top boxes that include PVRs, HD capability or a combination of both, coupled with modestly increasing demand in Asia, is fueling the market growth, the high-tech market research firm says.

“Digital Cable Set Top Boxes: Demand for High-End Boxes Continues to Spur Market Growth,” a recent In-Stat report found:

  • Digital cable set-top box worldwide unit shipments reached 12.2 million in 2005, up from 10.8 million in 2004.
  • For the first time, shipments of advanced digital set-top boxes exceeded basic digital box unit shipments in 2005.
  • Motorola and Scientific-Atlanta continue account for 90 percent of all worldwide unit shipments through the first half of 2005.
