Cable Broadband Equipment Market Up 14% in 1Q15June 12, 2015 | IHS
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
As MSOs continued major upgrades to their broadband networks, cable DOCSIS (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification) channel shipments grew to 1.8 million in the first quarter of 2015 (1Q15), a 14 percent sequential increase, and a gain of 48 percent from the year-ago first quarter, according to the IHS Infonetics CCAP, CMTS, and Edge QAM Hardware report from IHS.
"The cable broadband market got off to a mixed start in the first quarter. Despite the first quarter typically being a slow one, DOCSIS channels increased yet again. But revenue was down due to a combination of aggressive pricing and a higher proportion of software licenses," said Jeff Heynen, research director for broadband access and pay TV at IHS.
- CCAP, CMTS, CMC and edge QAM revenue fell 7 percent sequentially in 1Q15, to $474 million
- The now-dead merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable was expected to dampen the key North American region in Q1, but despite the headwinds, the overall cable broadband market remained healthy, setting the stage for a strong 2015
- To date, very few cable operators have deployed video QAM channels on their CCAP-capable platforms, tamping the long-term outlook for these channels
- ARRIS dominated the cable broadband market again in 1Q15, supported in part by the early availability of its E6000 CCAP-capable product

Global TV Shipments to Fall Below 197 Million Units for the First Time in 2023, Slight Growth of 0.2% Expected in 202411/29/2023 | TrendForce
TrendForce’s latest research indicates that despite a decrease in the CPI in Europe and the US this year, consumer budgets are still constrained due to the current high-interest-rate environment, and the real estate bubble in China has suppressed TV demand. Moreover, a significant increase in TV panel prices this year has led brands to scale down promotional events.
