Americas SVoD Market Dynamics

Although cord-cutting has not yet affected the country’s pay-TV market significantly, the popularity of on-demand content and the emergence of new commercial platforms in the SVoD market will limit pay-TV subscriber growth. Increased broadband adoption, both fixed and mobile, and the development of partnerships with telcos and traditional pay-TV players will also help to drive growth in the SVoD market.

Americas SVoD Market Trends

Americas broadcasters, studios, and content producers are looking for ways to monetize their content libraries more efficiently. As competition in the SVoD market increases, the “one-size-fits-all” approach loses efficacy. Platforms need to cater to different audiences, making their services appealing to specific age and ethnic groups, countries, budgets, etc.

New SVoD trends are emerging as the market matures and audiences grow. From a regional perspective, North America is one of the largest and most mature SVoD markets worldwide. Although, North America is likely to lead in terms of SVoD service adoption, the gap with several Latin American countries will progressively narrow over the next five years.

Americas SVoD Market Segmentation by Countries

The key countries in the Americas SVoD market are the US, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, and Mexico. The US market, home to some of the leading SVoD platforms globally, is also one of the most competitive OTT video markets worldwide with internet companies, production houses, and telcos aggressively competing for market share. Over the last four years, the launch of new streaming platforms such as Apple TV+, HBO Max, Peacock, and Disney+, has multiplied viewers’ options, intensifying competition.

The US: The US SVoD market is one of the most mature markets globally. Over 2022-2027 GlobalData expects this to expand in the US. The strong traction generated by SVoD platforms in the country over the last several years is displacing the traditional pay-TV industry, which is losing subscriptions at a very fast pace.

Business Intelligence & Marketing Manager, SAL Heavy Lift

“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”

Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk

Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.

Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB

Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.

Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods

Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.

I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.

I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.

Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered

“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.

Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”

Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan

GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise.  The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.

I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.

One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
