Analyst Opinion

The TV & Video market in Germany has been experiencing significant growth in recent years, driven by changing customer preferences and the increasing availability of digital content. Customer preferences in Germany have shifted towards on-demand and streaming services, with consumers increasingly opting for platforms such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

This trend can be attributed to the convenience and flexibility offered by these services, allowing users to watch their favorite shows and movies at their own convenience. Additionally, the availability of a wide range of content, including original programming, has also contributed to the popularity of these platforms. Another important factor driving the growth of the TV & Video market in Germany is the increasing adoption of smart TVs.

These devices offer seamless integration with online streaming services, allowing users to access their favorite content directly from their television sets. The convenience and ease of use provided by smart TVs have made them a popular choice among consumers, further boosting the demand for digital content. In addition to changing customer preferences, there are also local special circumstances that have contributed to the growth of the TV & Video market in Germany.

The country has a strong tradition of public broadcasting, with channels such as ARD and ZDF being widely popular. However, even these traditional broadcasters have adapted to the changing market dynamics by launching their own streaming platforms, such as ARD Plus and ZDFmediathek. This has allowed them to cater to the growing demand for online content while retaining their loyal viewer base.

Additionally, Germany has a well-developed infrastructure, with widespread access to high-speed internet.

In conclusion, the TV & Video market in Germany is experiencing significant growth due to changing customer preferences, the increasing adoption of smart TVs, local special circumstances, and underlying macroeconomic factors. As consumers continue to prioritize convenience and flexibility in their entertainment choices, the demand for digital content and streaming services is expected to further drive the growth of the market in the coming years.


Data coverage:

The data encompasses B2C enterprises. Figures are based on Traditional TV & Home Video and OTT (over-the-top) Services. All monetary figures refer to consumer spending on digital goods or subscriptions in the respective segment. This spending factors in discounts, margins, and taxes.

Modeling approach / Segment size:

The segment size is determined through a bottom-up approach. We use annual financial reports of the market-leading companies and industry associations, third-party studies and reports, survey results from our primary research (e.g., Consumer Insights), as well as performance factors (e.g., user penetration, price per product, usage) to analyze the markets. To estimate the segment size for each country individually, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific industry associations, such as GDP, number of internet users, and internet consumption.


We apply a variety of forecasting techniques, depending on the behavior of the relevant segment. For instance, the S-curve function and exponential trend smoothing are well suited for forecasting digital products and services due to the non-linear growth of technology adoption.
