APAC Set-top Box Market size is projected to cross USD 9 billion by 2027, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.
The Asia Pacific market is expected to proliferate significantly owing to supportive regulations on TV services by several governments. Asia Pacific countries, such as Malaysia, Fiji, India, the Philippines, and Australia, are taking initiatives to increase the adoption of digital TVs. Countries including Japan, Hong Kong, China, South Korea, and Singapore have already banned analog TVs. A digital TV requires a set-top box as a transmission decoder to stream various channels and IP services.
Government regulations on digitization of TV broadcasting to ensure transparency of money transfer across the Asian countries will provide ample growth opportunities for the market over the forecast period. In Singapore, the government banned the analog TV signal reception in March 2019. The government launched a scheme for the digitalization of TV services in the country. This scheme applies to all households, who do not own a Pay-TV subscription. Citizens can apply for a Digital TV (DTV) starter kit on the government portal. Till date, over 450,000 households have switched to digital TV using a DTV starter kit.

The companies operating in the set-top box industry are taking initiatives to help the governments to fight against corona virus.

Non-DVR set-top boxes held a high share in the Asia Pacific market in 2020. The high market share of non-DVR set-top boxes can be attributed to their low price as compared to DVR boxes. The ability of non-DVR boxes to stream SD and HD content at low costs is fueling their adoption in semi-urban and rural areas of Asian countries.
