Samsung’s Tizen OS dominates global smart TV market

Global sales of smart TVs are rising and accounting for most of the sets being sold. According to Strategy Analytics, odds are good that consumers buying smart TVs will pick one up that runs Samsung’s Tizen OS.

The research firm said that worldwide smart TV sales totaled 157 million units in 2018, representing 67% of all TVs sold during the year. Approximately 1 in 5 smart TVs sold today run on the Tizen platform while 1 in 10 run on the Google managed Android TV system.

Roku TV only accounted for 4% of global TV sales in 2018 but the company’s story in North America was much different, where nearly one in every four smart TVs sold last year ran the Roku TV OS.

David Watkins, director at Strategy Analytics, said that TV OEMs continue to pursue the market even though margins are slim, because smart TVs provide ample targeted advertising revenue opportunities.

“Control over the smart TV operating system is therefore of critical importance as it is through this software layer that companies can extract the valuable user data that drives targeted ad revenues,” said Watkins. “It is for this reason that Google, Roku and Amazon are battling to persuade TV makers to build their TV software platforms into their sets rather than go through the expensive and time consuming process of building and maintaining their own operating systems.”

Watkins said that while Tizen, followed by LG’s WebOS, are still the biggest smart TV operating systems globally, Google’s Android TV and Roku TV have made strong gains in the U.S. in recent years by building on their partnerships with second and third tier TV makers.

“Samsung will therefore be hoping that its recently announced exclusive arrangement with Apple to integrate the iTunes app into its smart TVs will give it something that these other fast growing platforms cannot match,” Watkins said.

      The new smart TVs powered by Tizen follow the announcement of Samsung’s Tizen TV Platform Licensing program at the Samsung Developer Conference (SDC) in 2021. The licensing program allows other TV brands to take advantage of Tizen OS, which provides industry-leading smart features, content discoverability tools, apps and modern user interface for the ultimate smart TV experience.
       
      To support the seamless adoption of Tizen OS, Samsung collaborates with a selection of partners on content licensing and hardware optimizations.

      The interoperable smart home project Matter is finally available as the Connectivity Standards Alliance and its members release a finalized first iteration of the standard and certification program. With that, it will be easier to integrate home appliances in a single solution, whether it’s controlled by Apple’s Siri, Google’s Assistant, Amazon’s Alexa, or Samsung.
      According to the press release, “member companies who make up all facets of the IoT now have a complete program for bringing the next generation of interoperable products that work across brands and platforms to market with greater privacy, security, and simplicity for consumers.”
      Over 280 member companies, which include Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Google, and Samsung’s SmartThings, have worked on bringing their technologies, experiences, and innovations into a single standard called Matter.
      Over the next few weeks and months, we’ll be able to see the first batch of products already supporting this standard as well as the companies updating older products to also work with Matter’s interoperability.
      In the meantime, Apple is reading new updates to its operating systems to make sure Matter is fully supported. iOS 16.1 beta version finally added support to this standard. This will also be the tvOS 16 most important feature once it’s available to all users.

      DALLAS—Parks Associates has released consumer research showing that in Q3 2021, 27% of US broadband subscribers reported that smart TV’s using the Samsung Tizen operating system were their primary device for consuming video content. 
      The data highlighted the fact that more “changes are coming for the video entertainment market in 2022," said Eric Sorensen, senior contributing analyst, Parks Associates. "The smart TV will cement its status as the default streaming platform in the households. We will see many more content partnerships and service acquisitions among providers and manufacturers. Content creators will leverage their ability to reach audiences directly, while service and content providers will adapt their business models to anticipate higher levels of churn than in previous years."
      Acquisitions and consolidations are becoming key options for streaming firms to compete in the face of limited material and the constant demand for more new content, Parks also reported.  
      It’s OTT Video Tracker found that the average churn rate for SVODs increased to 45% in 2021, a 5.5 percentage point jump from 2020. Consumers hold on to the services they use the most and jump among the others, paying for a program or season and then canceling when they are finished, Parks reported. The number of subscriptions may rise and fall over time, indicating that churn rates will continue to be elevated in 2022.
      Parks Associates also reported that streaming media providers will face increasing competition from digital and social content producers in 2022. Popular online content creators are circumventing established distribution models and building their streaming applications from the ground up. For instance, KevOnStage Studios, created by comedian and multi-viral content producer Kevin Fredericks, whose stage name is KevOnStage, is very successful with his YouTube channel.
      "Streaming apps provide new revenue opportunities, especially with the chance to retain content ownership rights," Sorensen said. "Digital content creators can monetize content and build audiences collected from social networking and video sharing platforms to their streaming applications and websites."
      The OTT Video Market Tracker, an annual service from Parks Associates, features monthly updates on trends and market activities in the OTT video space, including comprehensive tracking of existing and emerging players and quarterly subscriber estimates.
