SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Although still in the early stages of deployment, IP video services in Asia Pacific are ramping up and will grow by nearly 80% annually through 2010, reports In-Stat. In-Stat forecasts that by 2010 this market's revenue will reach $4.2 billion. China, Japan, India and South Korea will account for the majority of regional growth, the high-tech market research firm says.

"Increasing broadband penetration gives telcos the opportunity to leverage their investment in broadband networks while broadening their service offerings, " said Bryan Wang, In-Stat analyst. "But deployment, launch and marketing strategy specifics are largely still on the drawing board for quite a few carriers."

A recent report by In-Stat found the following:

  • In deregulated markets like Japan and South Korea, telecom companies can offer IPTV and VOD services freely, while in China, incumbent carriers have yet to obtain IPTV licenses to provide such value-added video offerings.

  • "Triple play" strategies encompassing voice, video and data offerings will soon be the norm for most communication providers in Asia Pacific.

  • The major IP-based video service providers leading the market in the region are expected to include Yahoo!BB, Korea Telecom, Chunghwa Telecom, PCCW, China Telecom, China Netcom, SingTel and Atlas Interactive India.

The report, "Asia Pacific IP-Based Video Services Market Analysis" (#IN0502384ACM), covers the IP video services market in the Asia Pacific region including Japan, South Korea, China, Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand. It includes analysis of market drivers and challenges, and forecasts for IP video revenue by country through 2010.
