Asia Pacific will have 698 million SVOD subscriptions by 2026, up from 502 million at the end of this year.
According to the latest report from Digital TV Research, China will provide 354 million SVOD subscriptions in 2026, or half of the region’s total, with India reaching 157 million.
Commenting on the findings of the report, Simon Murray, Principal Analyst at Digital TV Research, said: “China will remain dominant, although its growth will slow. This is due to new online anti-fan regulations that limit game time for minors and force SVOD platforms to screen fewer reality shows. This will dampen interest in SVOD”.
Disney+ overtook Netflix in subscriber terms in 2020, almost entirely due to its success in India. Disney+ will reach 121 million subscribers by 2026, double its 2021 total.
