There is visible shift towards mobile as the viewing device with predicted CAGR for years 2016-2021 as high as 55%. This trend is fueled by increased numbers of smartphone owners, development of new high speed radio networks and falling prices both for new smartphones and subscription plans.
The growth in internet video traffic to TV is little less prominent but still, the growth ratio for 5 years of 27% may be considered high. This segment of the market is serviced mostly by SVOD providers connected with big media companies, some of them running their businesses worldwide.
Some of the increased traffic numbers in predictions may be due to HD to 4K quality switch, but the most of it can be attributed to generic shift in content consumption models across population. There is increased trend away from written word and toward descriptive videos. This trend emanates mostly throughout video marketing. We are living now in video-first world and video is at the hearth of majority apps and services. 64% of consumers makes their purchase decisions based on watched product presentations in the internet. What’s interesting the gross of those presentations are performed by independent influencers on their private channels. For example, only 8% of marketing videos on YouTube is published by media companies. Facebook shows little different ratios with more activity of advertising agencies but video marketing done by influencers is its heyday nonetheless.
Among all possible video transmissions subtypes, life video is predicted to have the most substantial growth ratio in upcoming years. Live broadcast will account for 13% of Internet video traffic in 2021. A massive 15-fold increase from just 0,87% in 2016. Market studies show there is really big potential in live streaming. Most of today’s live transmissions are performed through software like skype or FaceTime and by corporate telepresence systems. But there are much more applications for live streaming, both in b2b and b2c segments of the market. Companies in various industries lean toward on-line interactive client servicing and acquisition. It’s there, where the predicted growth will explode. Live video transmission is very convenient and cost effective for every business where direct contact with the other side, whether it is another company or regular customer is required. This is applicable to many industries like financial advices, legal counsel, insurance, employer training and medical consultations just to name few. Big companies are able to deploy their own systems for servicing their own clients. Individuals could take advantage of live streaming option on existing video platforms. But all those systems have many flaws concerning such transmissions. Live video option looks on them almost like an afterthought. They lack crucial functionalities required by individuals, and are almost completely useless for businesses, maybe only with exclusion of some sort of marketing activities.
