Set-top box (STB) products have brought-up a revolution in the overall functioning of the television sets. STBs are essentially used at households and commercial places to provide high-quality television channels and other features to the users. Increasing demand for the internet and android features in the design of the STBs has changed the consumer perception towards purchasing of functionally enabled television set-top box setups. Rising demand for OTT streaming platforms such as Hulu, Amazon Prime, Hot star, and Netflix is expected to augment the consumption of the OTT streaming-based STB products.

Growing technological innovation in the design, features, and accessories fuel the demand for STBs among consumers. Other than innovation, effective marketing strategies as well as the establishment of effective relationships with the suppliers and vendors are the key performance indicators for the players operating in the market. Companies are constantly focusing on quality- price fit in order to gain the effective market performance of the set-top box product. Companies are keenly using merger and acquisition strategies to gain the advantage of the partner’s capability of technology innovation, distribution base, and promotional effectiveness.

Increasing adoption of the high quality & innovative home appliances products as well as growing income of the global population is expected to drive the demand for the STB products for the television sets. Additionally, a surge in demand for television sets among commercial places is likely to increase the consumption of set-top box products. Also, uncertain occurrences of pandemic diseases such as the current COVID-19 outbreak which has put restrictions on people to stay at their home for the longer duration has increased the consumption of the on-demand online streaming videos and is likely to drive the demand for the STB products.

Moreover, the rising adoption of consumers towards highly functionalized digital STBs over analog STBs has created a demand for newer digital technology-based products. Additionally, improvements in electronics retail outlets along with the rising e-commerce industry have provided convenience in the supply of electronic appliances products. However, governmental regulations regarding the limited usage of the frequency bandwidth for the set-top boxes are expected to hamper the market growth.
