103 million IPTV subscribers by 2011 According to figures from iSuppli, the total number of global IPTV subscribers will rise to 103 million in 2011, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 92.5% up from 3.9 million in 2006. iSuppli reports that the growth of IPTV is leading to a competitive battle over so called "triple-play" services - bundles voices, Internet and entertainment services.
"IPTV promises to add interactivity, personalization, integration of voice and data and value-added services to television entertainment," said Frank Dickson, principal analyst for multimedia content services at iSuppli. "Because of the wide variety of services offered by the technology, companies from various industries are being drawn into the IPTV/triple-play fight, sparking intensified competition among market participants."

The growth predicted by iSuppli translates into $39.1 billion in revenues, up by a factor of more than 40 from $960.5 million in 2006.
