Worldwide IPTV households to climb 52 percent through 2012, says IMS Research

A new study from IMS Research reveals that as a whole, an estimated 13.2 million households received IPTV service in 2007, with nearly 8.4 million IP-enabled set-top boxes shipping worldwide.

The study, “IPTV: A Global Market Analysis - 2008 Edition,” forecasts that the number of IPTV households will grow 52.2 percent through 2012. The competitive pay-TV landscape, as well as relaxation of government regulations in China and South Korea that restricted IPTV deployment, are key factors in the projected growth of the IPTV market, said Shane Walker, IMS research analyst and study author.
