technology and sales talent address network topologies and capacity,
solutions innovation, software and infrastructure advantages underlying
account acquisition strategies.
CDNs (Content Delivery Networks) raised contract revenue 18.3% in 2012,
to $2.28 billion, as value-added services (site/app acceleration, cloud
solutions, analytics, specialized HTTP video platforms, content
transformation, workflow, management, security and rights protection) in
addition to core bandwidth provisioning supporting very large video
accounts fuelled market growth.
Sector-wide monthly recurring revenue (MRR) rose 8% to $5,65,
calculated as an average of each CDN's revenue-per-account performance
comparable, as detailed in this market and business analytics report.
The research report firmly establishes that media and entertainment
represents the largest content segment under CDN contract, forming 48.6%
of the penetrated market. Professional video, digital video advertising
and Internet music radio are highly penetrated verticals.
Professional video bandwidth fees frame a 35.8% share of the available
market (counting self-hosting sites), followed by UGC video at 19.6%,
mobile video (views and advertising) at 14.8% and music radio/song plays
Delivery costs are tallied against video views, listening hours,
downloads (music/movies) and video advertising (pre/mid/post roll and
in-page) revealing total bytes delivered by content vertical.
