Top 6 Vendors in the Video Services Market from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top six leading vendors in their recent global video services market report. This research report also lists 24 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

In 2015, the global video services market was valued at USD 62.65 billion, and it will grow at a CAGR of 24.34% to reach USD 186.2 billion by 2020.

Video streaming services allow viewers to view videos or any digital content free of cost. One of the popular online platforms for video streaming services is YouTube, which allows viewers to watch, rate, share, and give feedback about videos. Most often, video streaming services are interactive, and content providers can measure its popularity by counting the number of views.

More than 60% of the marketing professionals confirm that video advertising through an online platform is the most effective form of marketing and it gives the highest ROI. However, viewers prefer to watch advertisements that are not longer than 15 seconds. Short and innovative video ads attract a larger number of viewers.

Competitive scenario

The global video services market is highly competitive because of the presence of many large players. Intense competition and increasing technological advances are significant risk factors for vendors. Vendors are competing based on features, technology, video quality, and price. During the forecast period, the competition will become more intense as vendors adopt advanced technologies to gain competitive advantages.

“Vendors are investing in planning, designing, developing, acquiring new players, and expanding existing facilities. Technological innovations and creativity play a significant role in driving the market growth. To sustain in the competitive market, vendors have to develop new ideas and technologies and stay up-to-date with the emerging technologies that could influence the service lines,” says Ujjwal Doshi, a lead media and entertainment services analyst from Technavio.
