In-Stat research forecasts that the IP set top box market will grow 14 percent, and is expected to reach 2.1 crore in 2011.

"The recent uptick in IP STB is a result of telcos gaining subscribers from cable and satellite providers as well as replacing the boxes of current subscribers," says Michelle Abraham, research director at In-Stat.

"Future increases for IP STB shipments will likely be driven by service providers moving to a server/client architecture where there is a media gateway/server located in the media room of the house that shares its content with client boxes that are distributed throughout the rest of the home. These client boxes will be IP STBs. DirectTV is one of the first providers to offer this service, but In-Stat expects that others will follow over the next few years."

In-Stat's research entitled "Worldwide IP Set Top Boxes" added that Motorola remained the market share leader in 2010 with 21 percent of the market. North America IP STB unit shipments will increase 48 percent next year. The research further stated that in 2013, Western Europe will account for 46 percent of worldwide IP STB revenues.
