Global set-top-box market: Development of integrated STBs

In this report, Technavio highlights the development of integrated STBs as one of the key emerging trends in the global set-top-box market:

Various TV manufacturers are developing TVs integrated with STBs. These TVs ensure a clutter-free installation as the number of wire sets within a single device is limited. The TVs are designed to integrate a digital satellite tuner; this allows the reception of DTH signal without the need for an external STB. These TVs offer access to online video streaming platforms and social media. Additionally, they offer better storage options with capacities up to 2TB. The integration of STBs will help reduce the signal loss while offering a single remote solution with an intuitive user guide.

“The growing, dynamic consumer base and purchasing power, along with the rapid urbanization and preference for innovative technologies will drive the demand for TVs integrated with STBs. Some of the manufacturers of TVs have included TVs with integrated STBs to their product portfolio,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on consumer electronics.
