With the increasing penetration of high-speed internet and the availability of low-cost devices, the demand for OTT services in Russia has been growing in recent years.The OTT market in Russia is expected to continue to grow in the coming years, driven by increasing demand for high-quality video content, a growing middle class with disposable income, and a younger generation that is more tech-savvy and accustomed to consuming content online. To tap into this growing market, major international and local players have entered the Russian OTT market, offering a variety of services, including streaming video and music, online gaming, and cloud storage. The COVID-19 pandemic has further accelerated the trend, as more people turned to online video for entertainment and communication while social distancing measures were in place. The OTT market in Russia has become increasingly competitive in recent years, with both international and local players vying for market share. Local players such as IVI and Okko have emerged as strong competitors to international players such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. The Russian government has introduced several laws aimed at regulating online content, including restrictions on certain types of content and a requirement for domestic companies to store user data locally. These regulations have made it more difficult for international players to operate in the market and have created opportunities for local players.

Developments in wired and wireless technologies and telecommunication standards, such as 3G, 4G, and 5G, are increasing the adoption of cloud streaming services across the world. Cloud streaming services help prevent the illegal downloading and sharing of video and audio files. Vendors are adopting push strategies by focusing on the freemium business model that aims at migrating free users to premium services while ensuring sustainability. This leads to an increase in the adoption of cloud streaming services. Several players, such as Spotify, offer premium services for a monthly subscription fee as well as free subscription services. Consumers are slowly shifting toward paid premium services to gain access to additional features, including shuffle play, advertisement-free, downloading, high-quality audio, and the skipping function. Consumers have shifted from the use of iPods and music systems to cloud-based streaming services, which allow users to store, download, stream, and share content.

The growing Internet penetration, adoption of push strategies by market players, and better cloud streaming services will encourage consumers to adopt cloud streaming services during the forecast period.

Moreover, data plans in most parts of the world are still costly thus making it difficult for people to purchase it. Such factors could hinder the market growth in the forecasted period.
