The succession of crises continues to reinforce the downward trend in the television market. Thus, after Covid-19, the conflict in Ukraine and its impact on inflation and the economy, television revenues will not return to past levels. Moreover, structurally, the pay-TV sector is losing ground, due to the increasing popularity of OTT video services and TV ad-supported services have to contend with the continued growth of the Internet market.
After a post-Covid recovery in 2021, the global TV market is expected to decline by -0.2% in 2022 and by a longer trend of -0.4% per year by 2026. The decline in the pay-TV sector is the main cause of this deterioration. This is also the case in the world’s largest market, the US, where the value of the TV market is expected to fall by more than USD 10 billion, or -8.5%, between 2022 and 2026.
While the TV market continues to lose steam, the growth of OTT is ensuring the dynamics of the audiovisual sector. It is expected to account for a third of the total “Television and Video” market in 2026.
