Smart TVs have emerged as an advancement that is transforming the entertainment industry throughout the globe.

Smart TVs, as considered under the scope of the report, are adopted across various end-use areas in order to provide an enhanced audio visual experience to the audience. As high speed Internet has become easily affordable, viewers/audiences that prefer good quality content are preferring smart TVs over other television systems. Also, the growing admiration for OTT streaming in audio visual content is impacting the overall smart TV market in a positive manner. Besides this, technological development and substantial availability and usage of Internet services are a few other factors impelling the growth of the global smart TV market in terms of value. The global smart TV market is valued at US$ 255 Bn by the end of 2016, and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 17.5% in terms of value over the forecast period. The global smart TV market is expected to represent a high incremental opportunity between 2017 and 2027.
Unlike a few years back when smart TVs were not very common, the Smart TVs in present times have not remained eluded from smart homes. With advancements in technology such as 4K UHD, OLEDs, and quantum dot technologies, people expect to enjoy a better viewing experience along with the ease of usability of household devices, which is provided by their smart homes. Hence, the increasing adoption of smart homes throughout the world is also pushing the market for smart TVs. Apart from smart homes, smart TVs are nowadays also being adopted in various educational institutes, healthcare institutes, and hotels, as well as in commercial shopping complexes. Such a high adoption rate of smart TVs in various application areas is expected to drive the smart TV market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the adoption of advanced technologies, transitioning consumer spending behaviour for enhanced customer experience, and increasing economic growth of the developing economies of South East Asia and Middle East & Africa are also pushing the overall smart TV market.
On the basis of screen type, the global smart TV market can be segmented into 28 to 40 inch, 41 to 59 inch, and 60 inch & above. The 28 to 40 inch segment is expected to account for a sizable share of the overall smart TV market in 2017, but is expected to foresee a decrease in the growth rate yearly, due to the embellishment of the 60 inch & above screen type segment by the end of the forecast period. One of the important factors for this drift in the smart TV market is the change in customer spending patterns for luxurious products. Nowadays, customers prefer going for smart TVs which have bigger screens and better visibility, for their luxurious living rooms. The 41 to 59 inch screen type sub-segment is also expected to foresee considerably high adoption, and is expected to follow the 60 inch & above sub-segment in the smart TV market. Such high growth rates in the smart TV market are primarily driven by transformation in customer shopping preferences and high the preference given to lavish entertainment devices.
On the basis of distribution channel, the global smart TV market can be segmented into direct and indirect distribution channels. The growth of the smart TV market is predominantly driven by the direct distribution channel. However, major revenues in the smart TV market are expected to be generated through the indirect distribution channel. Online channels are also impacting the growth of the overall smart TV market, especially in developed economies.
On the basis of geographical region, the smart TV market is segmented across North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, APEJ, Japan, and MEA. The APEJ smart TV market holds a major value share in the global smart TV market, and is likely to maintain its dominance in the global smart TV market over the forecast period. The smart TV market in the region is projected to represent a significant incremental opportunity between 2017 and 2027. The smart TV market in APEJ is pre-dominantly organized, but various local players are also inclined towards providing smart TV solutions at reduced costs. With more than approximately half of the world’s Internet users, APEJ is a home to the fastest growing Internet penetration in the world. Technological advancements, adoption of services such as e-Commerce, cashless payments, and social media attract the young and tech savvy smart TV customers. These factors are driving the smart TV market in the APEJ region. Also, government initiatives such as digital India, which is an initiative by the Government of India, or smart city projects in various countries, are pushing the smart TV market in the region. Another reason for the high adoption of smart TVs in APEJ is the high volume of video content accessible through them, especially the substantial free content provided by OTT content providers such as Viu services provided by Pacific Century Cyber Works, and HOOQ services provided by Singapore Telecommunications Limited in APAC countries. Particularly in China, a large volume of free content is present, owing to which, China is one of the major revenue contributors in the APEJ smart TV market. APEJ is expected to be followed by North America and Western Europe in the smart TV market in terms of revenues generated. Entertainment is the major driver for the adoption of smart TVs in North America, along with high Internet penetration, and continuous technological advancements in the entertainment industry. Also, the ease of accessibility to good streaming content in the Western European region can be expected to drive the market growth. A large number of video streaming content providers are collaborating with smart TV manufacturers to provide a substantial amount of video content to customers, attracting more and more customers towards buying smart TVs. The sales of smart TVs in Western Europe are projected to represent a total incremental opportunity of US$ 211 Bn. during the study period.
