UK analyst group Rethink Technology Research has issued a new Report for customers of its Rethink OTT Intelligence service (ROI) entitled “The Opportunity for OTT Video DRMs 2016 to 2021”

But of the two types of paid TV apps, TV Everywhere is starting from a far smaller base and growing faster than SVoD. TV Everywhere today is a small business, worth just $36 million in DRM license sales globally. But SVoD is where the money is to be made, because today the market is over 3 times this. The two markets together will grow at 14.1% over the next 5 years. TV Everywhere DRM will be biggest in Western Europe, with North America not far behind. In SVoD the two strongest markets are North America, and Asia Pacific, which is expected to provide 43% of the DRM sales by value, across a far higher concentration of subscribers. In Total SVoD subscribers will rise from 238 million today to $56 million by the end of 2021.

This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one b...
