Structural Shift in Broadcast and Media Technology Industry

 

In addition, the webinar will review the technology segmentation underlying the report model, and offer the audience the important background on the methodology behind the GMVR.

The 450-page GMVR draws on actual and future projected revenue and product shipment data supplied to IABM DC by technology vendors and service providers under a framework of strict confidentiality.  GMVR partners provided granular data submissions (under strict confidentiality), which detail their actual historic and future product revenue and unit shipments.  This data was anonymized and used to create the most comprehensive and authoritative reference on current and future market sizing for the sector. In aggregate, the 2015 GMVR data model covers approximately 3,000 technology vendors and service providers.

You can learn more about the GMVR and how to participate in future iterations of the report at the IABM DC website.

Should you have any detailed questions on the GMVR, please feel free to get in touch with representatives from IABM or Devoncroft Partners.. 

We hope you are able to join the webinar on Wednesday.

Collaborative Market Sizing Initiative Reveals Structural Shift in Broadcast and Media Technology Industry

Evolving end-user business models alter industry economics, drive significant changes in technology buying patterns, product and supplier choice, and outsourcing

 

IABMDC Logo

 

Gloucestershire, UK and Coronado, CA —  Spending on products and services in the $48 billion broadcast and media technology industry shifted dramatically between 2012 and 2014, according to the newly released Global Market Valuation and Strategy Report (GMVR), published by IABM DC LLC, a joint venture between IABM and Devoncroft Partners.

Considered by many to be the definitive source for broadcast and media technology market sizing, and now in its tenth year, the GMVR draws on actual and future projected revenue and product shipment data supplied to IABM DC by technology vendors and service providers under a framework of strict confidentiality. In aggregate, the 2015 GMVR data model covers approximately 3,000 technology vendors and service providers.

2015 GMVR data provides clear evidence of an industry-wide change in buying strategies by media technology end-users such as content creators, broadcasters, pay TV operators, and service providers.

After experiencing a 4% CAGR (compounded annual growth rate) between 2009 and 2012, the market total for broadcast and media technology products and services slowed considerably between 2012 and 2014, achieving a CAGR of 1.3%.

 

 

 

Significantly, revenue from products (both hardware and software) declined by 0.5% between 2012 and 2014, while revenue from services increased by 2.9%.  During 2014, services accounted for approximately $26 billion, or 54% of total spending by broadcast and media technology end-users.

“The commercial models of many broadcasters and media companies have changed dramatically,” said Joe Zaller, founder and president of Devoncroft Partners.  “The combination new digital and on-line delivery platforms, the shift to a file-based workflows, the increasing need for digital monetization, and the promise of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) IT hardware managed by software-defined networking have been catalysts for an industry-wide rethinking of both what technology is required to support future business goals, and whether it will be purchased or outsourced. We believe these factors will continue to alter the structure of the industry through the end of our forecast period (2018).

These factors, and their impact on the market are explored in more detail throughout the 2015 GMVR.

Peter White, chief executive, IABM says: “Although aggregate industry growth has changed, this is undoubtedly a dynamic time for our industry.  Revenue in some product categories has shown a degree of decline, however other parts of the market are growing quickly. The changing media landscape affecting the demand side of the industry is having repercussions on the supply side as well, requiring a re-thinking of many business models. During this period of “metamorphosis” there has been a slowdown of investment by end users as they seek a clearer vision of the business model and product roadmap going forward. Despite this hiatus confidence remains high in the broadcast and digital media technology market, particularly with the emergence of the many new innovations and opportunities that we anticipate will have a positive impact on growth.”

A must-read document for all broadcast industry strategists, the 450-page 2015 GMVR provides market sizing data for approximately 150 product categories, across nine market segments. It includes extensive written commentary about the drivers affecting the market, and an analysis of how changing markets and technologies may shape the future composition of the broadcast and media technology industry. The data tables that accompany the written report provide and regional splits and forecasts to 2018 at the segment and sub-segment levels.

For more information, please visit the IABM DC website.

Analysis, broadcast industry technology trends, broadcast industry trends | Posted by Joe Zaller
Apr 22 2015

Depending on your perspective, the 2015 NAB Show may be remembered as a pivotal moment in the evolution of the media technology industry.BBS Logo

Whether you travelled to Las Vegas for the 2015 NAB Show or read about it in the trade press, it’s hard to disagree that the pace of change in the industry is accelerating rapidly.

There were a huge number announcements before and during the NAB Show. If you’re like us, you may be reviewing them in an attempt to separate hype from reality, while working to distill what you’ve seen and heard into an actionable strategy that moves your business forward.

 

Share your opinions on broadcast & media technology

Coming out of NAB 2015, you probably have a lot of opinions about trends, technology deployments, or the products and brands of media industry vendors; and we’d like to hear them.

You can share your thoughts by participating in Devoncroft’s 2015 Big Broadcast Survey (BBS), the largest and most comprehensive annual study of the broadcast and media technology industry.

 

Click here to register for the 2015 Big Broadcast Survey.

 

Once you complete the short registration process (necessary in an age of web-crawling spam bots), we’ll send you a link to participate in the 2015 BBS.

There are a million surveys… Why bother with this one?

In an age when cheap web-based tools allow anyone with $20 to do an online survey, the Big Broadcast Survey stands the test of time as a critical tool for media technology strategists.

The BBS takes a scientific approach that provides independent third-party validation a wide range of important topics. It allows both buyers and suppliers of media technology to benchmark themselves against their peers on a global basis.

That’s why technology vendors, broadcasters, service providers, and finance professionals rely on the BBS as one of the most important reference tools for the media technology industry.

That’s why there was a standing-room only crowd last week in Las Vegas when we shared some of the insights from the BBS as part of the fourth annual “Shifting Media Economics: Impact on Strategy, Finance, and Technology” event, which is now part of the NAB Show’s 2015 Media Finance and Investor Conference track.

This was the scene as we kicked off the third annual “Shifting Media Economics: Impact on Strategy, Finance, and Technology”  event at the NAB 2014 Show.

This half-day session was co-produced by Devoncroft Partners, Silverwood Partners, and the organizers of the 2014 NAB Show (to whom both Devoncroft and Silverwood are very grateful).

We had a standing-room only crowd from the moment the doors opened, and attendees were not disappointed by the outstanding information presented on the day.  The power of this unique event is that it brings together three ordinarily disparate groups — technology vendors, broadcasters, and financial firms — to discuss and debate important business issues facing the industry at a time of incredibly dynamic change.

We would especially like to thank our speakers and panelists for not only taking times out of their busy lives to prepare for and attend this event, but also (especially) for their thoughtful and often candid assessment of the state of the broadcast industry today, and what the future may bring.

In particular we would like to thank Vince Roberts,EVP Global Operations and Chief Technical Officer of Disney/ABC Television for his outstanding keynote address, which which provided a truly thought-provoking insight into the future of the media industry (and he’s funny too).
