COVID-Analysis 


There has been a rapid growth in COVID-19 positive cases that, along with taking lives, have also cast its shadow on the worldwide economic structure. This outbreak has impacted every part of the world, changed the market conditions, and unfortunately has also hampered the growth of different sectors of the global live IP broadcast equipment market.


This pandemic has been highly devastating for broadcast hardware manufacturers following the disruption in supply chains across the world. After the advent of this deadly virus, suppliers have been advertising their hardware products and advertising aggressively to compensate for the huge revenue loss resulting from this pandemic. The lockdown during the first half of 2020 resulted in the cancellation of events that means several live IP broadcast equipment companies underwent severe financial pressure causing reduced budgets to invest in media technology.


Besides, cancellation in sports events is likely to cause financial loss further for the manufacturers of the broadcast equipment and other vendors present in the market. Due to the massive sum invested on the hardware and equipment for such sports events, COVID-19 has caused a tremendous loss to the earnings. Again with the consumption choice of consumers undergoing a change following the imposition of the lockdown and social distancing trends, OTT platforms such as Netflix and digital entertainment services have gained immense recognition than before. This is likely to have a positive impact on the live IP broadcast equipment market size in the long run.


Again, the cloud technology is regarded to be vital for the accomplishment of direct-to-consumer services because they help in facilitating remote workflows. Trade experts, thus believe that following the burgeoning need for such services owing to surging demand for entertainment and reduced physical contacts, virtualizing operations may have huge investments. Growing demand for virtualization and OTT streaming services are likely to be the leading live IP broadcast equipment market trends. The market may also get an economic boost from the worldwide governments as well as rising relaxation of the regulations for live IP broadcast equipment providers and broadcasters.
