IPTV has turned into an increasingly well-liked service in China, either as a standalone service or, more in general, as part of a bundled offer. IPTV started to take off in the country, when network upgrades in both the cable and DSL sectors permitted high-bandwidth applications to arrive at a good proportion of the population, and as providers started to provide various channels to attract and retain customer interest.
The number of IPTV subscribers in China is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 29% during 2012 - 2014. The main reason, which will result in such a stupendous growth rate, is the huge population of the country. China is the most populous country of the world and thus, provides huge customer base for the IPTV service providers. Besides, the penetration rate is quite low at below 1%, which again provides plethora of opportunities to the service providers.
Moreover, to attract larger customer base, along with traditional IPTV services, the service providers are offering add on services, such as kids specific services, video on demand services, etc. Among the add on services, video on demand services are expected to bring huge revenue in the coming years as it has been forecasted that VOD market will grow at a CAGR of over 110% during 2008 - 2014.
