Increase in the usage of online platforms, demand for high-resolution content and the need for live broadcasts to drive the growth of the India OTT Video Services Market through 2026.
According to TechSci Research report, “India OTT Video Services Market By Streaming Type (Video-on-Demand and Live), By Region, Competition, Forecast & Opportunities FY2016-FY2026”, India OTT Video Services Market is expected to reach USD5.12 billion by FY2026, growing at a CAGR of 29.52% during the forecast period.

However, the lack of efficient telecom infrastructures and high-speed data services, along with the increasing piracy of the content are posing a serious challenge to the growth of the OTT Video Services Market in India. Additionally, the rigidity of the consumers towards online video and content sharing services can further restrict the growth of the market.
