Also, advent of Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) 3.0 standards is also anticipated to be opportunistic for the OTA transmission platform market growth in the forthcoming years.
Increase in demand for better picture quality and wireless transmission platforms
Over-the-Air (OTA) transmission platform is a wireless platform that is broadly used in the transmission and broadcast industry. Television and radio are the major platforms that use OTA transmission platform to broadcast channels wirelessly. Moreover, increase in trend of streaming channels online and on-demand content services fuels the demand for Over-the-Air (OTA) transmission platform. In addition, increase in demand from customers for better picture quality content, such as 4K and HD drives the demand for OTA transmission platform among service providers. Furthermore, increase in need to provide better services to consumers is also the one of the key factors that fuel the demand for OTA transmission among OTA service providers.
Advent of ATSC 3.0 standards
Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) is a global non-profit group that comprises experts, regulators, electronics manufacturers, media agencies, and broadcasters. Under the ATSC standard, there have been some regulations set for broadcasting of digital television content over the cable, terrestrial, and satellite or wireless networks. However, with the advent of ATSC 3.0 the OTA transmission is anticipated to get enhanced, which is anticipated to be opportunistic for the market in the upcoming years. Moreover, the ATSC 3.0 is expected to support high efficiency video coding, which enables less consumption of bits along with broadcasting of more video data. In addition, the reception signals for channels would be enhanced, which further improves the viewer experience. Hence, such factors are expected to provide major opportunities for the growth of the OTA transmission platform market in the forthcoming years.
Impact of COVID-19 on OTA Transmission Platform Market
The emergence of COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected almost all the industries across the world. Further, lockdown enforcements and restrictions on movements of non-essential goods as well as resources in various countries has disrupted the supply chain of electronic components & networking equipment. Thus, this has led to the delay in supply of electronic components required in manufacturing of the network equipment.
It is expected that the U.S. and global tech market growth is slowing down to nearly 2% in 2020 due to which ICT spending in major economies such as U.S. and other have declined in the first half of 2020 but manage to recover in the second half.
Also, COVID-19 pandemic has resulted into the exponential growth of the over-the-top (OTT) services. The growth of this segment will expected to impact negatively on the adoption of over-the-air transmission platform.
However, hybrid combination of over-the-top (OTT) and over-the-air (OTA) is anticipated to create opportunities for the market in the upcoming years. For instance, AirTV which can be added to an antenna and streams local broadcast channels into the Sling TV app on Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and Android TV devices. This allows the user to have a single TV guide which covers both over-the-air channels from an antenna and streaming cable channels from Sling.
