By 2029, the US is forecast to be the only country generating more than $1bn in FAST revenues. The UK and Canada will be close to $1bn, with these three countries taking nearly half of the world’s total.

Global FAST revenues will increase by $9.4bn between 2023 and 2029, with the US supplying $2.1bn in additional revenues to reach $6.5bn, said the report.

Simon Murray, principal analyst at Digital TV Research, said: “Pluto TV, Roku Channel and Samsung TV Plus will account for nearly half the global FAST revenues by 2029. The rest of the FAST market will remain fragmented, with far less globalisation than in the SVOD sector.”
