In the five years to 2014, a boost in high-speed internet subscribers and a rise in consumer spending have driven growth in the Cable Providers industry. In the coming years, the industry is forecast to grow, benefiting from higher per capita disposable income and increased consumer sentiment. As in years past, cable TV subscription rates are expected to continue declining amid intense competition and market saturation.
This industry is composed of companies that operate wired, third-party distribution systems for broadcast programming. These operators deliver television programming received from cable networks or local television stations to consumers via cable infrastructure on a subscription basis. Cable providers also offer internet access and internet-protocol telephony services, usually as a package bundled together with a cable TV subscription. This industry excludes telecommunications carriers.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
