The global OTT market size was valued at $121.61 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $1,039.03 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 29.4% from 2020 to 2027 according to allied market research. To succeed, today’s OTT providers need to acquire a deeper understanding of the consumer habits & choices, monitor user behavior across platforms, continuously measure metrics that matter for a better subscriber retention and minimizing churn rate.

Understanding of segments of users who may be willing to pay a premium to avoid ads or consumers willing to watch ads to get free content can help drive strategies for OTT monetization. To achieve these outcomes, OTT providers should consider implementing analytics solutions in a way that will enable them to understand the full view of customer attitudes towards content, In-app ads and response to marketing.
