Tokyo, December 9th, 2022 - GEM Partners has published a report called "Video on demand / Broadcast / Physical home video market user analysis report in Japan (Surveyed in November 2022)" an analysis report on the actual usage of video content. In this release, we will report on the actual status of user usage in the form of excerpts from the survey report, focusing on trends in usage rates across type of contracts and type of media, as well as the average number of SVOD users.
SVOD utilization rate: +2.6 pt YoY to 37.8%; rapid growth after 2020 subsides but still growing.
AdVOD utilization rate: +1.3 pt YoY to 58.7%, though the increase is shrinking.
DVD/BD Rental/Sell Utilization rate: Continuing Decline, Shift to Digital.
In a survey of utilization rates of <Video on demand>, <Broadcasting>, and <Physical home video> for each type of media by type of contracts such as "Subscription," "Rental," "Purchase," and "Free,". SVOD for "subscription" <Video on demand> showed the largest increase, recording 37.8%, up 2.6 ppt from the previous year. Although growth was slower than in 2020 (+8.1 pt YoY) and 2021 (+4.8 pt YoY*), growth continued to be robust.
*Rounding has resulted in the first decimal place not matching the difference from the previous year's apparent figure.
AdVOD, the "free" <video delivery> service, is also growing in utilization. AdVOD, which includes YouTube, TVer, TikTok, etc., recorded 58.7%, up 1.3 ppt YoY; like SVOD, the increase was less than that of 2020 (+3.9 ppt YoY) and 2021 (+3.4 ppt YoY).
On the other hand, DVD/BD rentals of "Rental" <video software>, whose utilization rate has been declining year after year, showed no sign of bottoming out in this survey as well, at 12.7%, down 2.4 pt from the previous year. Similarly, DVD/BD purchases of "Purchased" <video software> continued to decline by 1.6 pt from the previous year, about the same level as the previous year, suggesting that the shift from physical to digital, especially SVOD, continues to progress for both rentals and sells.
