Characteristics of Streaming Media-Industry
Streaming Media includes audiovisual media and applications that are distributed as digital formats to the user via Internet. They include digital video content, digital music (both streaming media), digital games, and electronic publications.
The market for digital media consists of the following market segments: Video on Demand (Pay-per-View (TVoD), Video Subscription (SVoD), Video Download (EST)), Digital Music (Music Download, Music Streaming), Video Games (Download Games, Mobile Games, Online Games) and ePublishing (eBooks, eMagazines, ePapers).
The statistic shows the share of households with subscription video-on-demand worldwide from the first quarter of 2017 to the third quarter of 2018. It can be seen that only 26 percent had SVoD services in the third quarter 2018, which represents an increase of 8 percent on the first quarter of the previous year. This indicates that there is still a lot of potential in the streaming media market and it is far from saturated.
