The number of subscribers watching internet protocol television (IPTV) services will expand by a factor of more than 26 from 2005 to 2010, according to US market intelligence group iSuppli.
Global IPTV subscribers will grow to just over 63m in 2010, rising at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 92.1% from 2.4m in 2005.
The IPTV subscriber base will generate more than $27bn in overall IPTV services revenue in 2010, said iSuppli.
"The fight to capture the expanding base of IPTV subscribers will put telecom operators on a collision course with existing pay-TV market competitors and with a new class of broadband video portals as they roll out progressively more sophisticated offerings," said Mark Kirstein, vice president, multimedia content and services for iSuppli.
