China will peak in 2021, with a slow decline thereafter. OTT penetration and competition will remain much higher in China than in India. “Much of this subscriber growth is down to the number of TV households increasing by 65 million between 2019 and 2025 to 978 million as populations rise and disposable income climbs,” Simon Murray, Principal Analyst at Digital TV Research said. “The region’s population is 4 billion– more than half of the world’s total.”
