Summary

This new 2020 edition adjusts its scope to focus on North Africa and the Middle East and expands to cover 12 countries.

For each country, the TV and OTT video market analysis includes the levels of access to TV services per network and the revenues generated by audiovisual services (advertising and subscription). As well as historical data since 2016, 5-year market forecasts up to 2024 are provided.

The North Africa/Middle East market further reveals its unique characteristics in this edition: the dominance of satellite and FTA TV, a lacklustre pay-TV market with chronic under-monetisation, and an over-representation of OTT services.

The Covid-19 crisis is impacting an already suffering advertising market. Can we expect a rebound? In parallel, will under-pressure pay-TV players find new growth drivers? How quickly will OTT services, driven by SVOD, continue to grow?
