The number of TV sets connected to the Internet will reach 876 million by 2020, up from 105 million at end-2010 and the 415 million expected at end-2015, according to a new report from Digital TV Research.

Covering 51 countries, the Connected TV Forecasts report states that the proportion of TV sets connected to the Internet will rocket to 29.9 per cent by 2020, up from only 4.5 per cent at end-2010 and the 15.5 per cent expected by end-2015. By 2020, South Korea (55 per cent) will have the highest proportion.

At the other end of the scale, the proportion will only be 11.4 per cent in India. The US will supply 184 million connected sets by 2020, up from 112 million in 2014.

China will take second place in 2020, with 144 million – up from only 21 million in 2014. From the 538 million additional TV sets connected to the Internet between 2014 and 2020, China will supply a massive 123 million, followed by the US (72 million), India (29 million), Brazil (30 million) and Japan (26 million).

Asia Pacific will become the largest region in 2017. Digital TV Research principal analyst Simon Murray said, “The connected TV sector has shifted considerably since our last edition a year ago.

This includes fundamentals such as a revision downwards of TV set growth due mainly to greater competition from mobile devices.” “Furthermore, the gulf between rich and poor nations is not going to be breached as rapidly as we previously thought.

Therefore, connected TV set forecasts for most developing countries, especially China and India, are a lot lower. “Retail OTT devices such as Chromecast and Apple TV have made more of a splash than previously expected.”

The global total of connected TV sets via streaming/retail set-top boxes such as Chromecast and Apple TV will reach 207 million in 2020 (with 42 million in the US and 39 million in China), up from fewer than 4 million in 2010. The expected 58 million total by end-2015 is up from 37 million a year earlier.
