Ad-Supported Video on Demand Market to Expand at 20% CAGR through 2030; COVID-19 Pandemic-related Lifestyle Complementing Demand for AVOD

Published On : Sep 11, 2020

Tablets and smartphones are increasingly becoming the first go-to devices for content consumption. In addition, with the emergence of advanced technologies enabling smartphone or tablet users to access the Internet more easily, and rapid adoption of fast network services such as 4G services in developing countries, mobile Internet penetration is anticipated to proliferate over the coming years. Although the cost of smartphones remains moderate due to increasing competition and innovation, these prices are expected to drop. Therefore, increase in mobile device penetration is one of the significant factors expected to boost the adoption of ad-supported video on demand content among users during the forecast period.

On the back of these factors, the global ad-supported video on demand market is projected to progress at an astonishing rate of 20% over the next decade, expanding over 6X in the mentioned time period.
