    Global set-top box shipments will have been almost 300M units in 2014. The value of the industry will have grown by 2% to 21.8b in 2014, driven by demand for cable STBs. Growth will peak in 2015 and thereafter volumes and revenue will decline as cable and terrestrial digitisation nears completion in most of the world. During the forecast period, industry value will decrease slightly because of reduced demand and price erosion. UHD may bolster revenue beyond the forecast period.
