Mobile TV & video revenue to more than double to $9.5B by 2017
According to Juniper, mobile TV and video services are on track to earn $4.5 billion in revenue this year; but, that number is expected to grow quite a bit and hit $9.5 billion by 2017. A lot of the growth is actually attributed to the maturation of mobile platforms and the video services available, including subscription services and pay-per-title content. This is a bit surprising, because many would think that the growth would be more attributable to the maturation of high-speed mobile connections. But, instead Juniper is finding that carriers will look for more and more ways to offload usage to WiFi.
North America, Western Europe, and the Far East & China are the top three regions for mobile TV and video. Those three regions are expected to account for 80% of the total revenue for video services.
