Growth of the IPTV market is also driven by factors such as the rising demand for video on demand, high-definition channels and hybrid services along with IPTV services. Instead of several driving factors, the IPTV market faces several challenges especially in the developing regions such as lack of infrastructure to offer a service free of delays and jitters, and maintaining the quality of IPTV services with the offered prices. In regions such as MENA, there is very little local or regional premium content production, due to which most shows are produced outside this region. Operators require huge investments to secure exclusive content, which involves enormous effort on their part. This becomes cost inefficient adding further expense and becomes a daunting issue, particularly considering the widespread practice of piracy in this region. Thus, protection of content and the prevention of piracy remains a significant challenge for the operators.

The global IPTV market is fragmented and the revenue generated in the IPTV market is shared by the leading players across the IPTV supply chain. It includes IPTV operators, software solution providers, middleware providers, content delivery network providers, and set-top-box vendors. Some leading IPTV service providers include China Telecom Corporation Limited, AT&T Inc., Orange S.A., Deutsche Telekom AG, NTT Communication, Verizon Communications, Iliad S.A., Etisalat Group, and Century Link. IPTV is anticipated to grow at a fast pace in the coming years. This is because the major telecommunication service providers are exploring IPTV as a defensive measure against intrusion from conventional cable television service providers and also as a new revenue opportunity.
