IP video publishers are forecast to deliver $22 billion in ad sales and subscription receipts across all platforms and geographies served in 2015, made against related COGS/OpEx vendor payments of $10.3 billion, according to a multi-disciplinary, industry-wide analysis carried out by AccuStream Research.
IP video publisher receipts, and fees paid for requisite technology support and services (i.e. CDN, mobile video adtech, desktop/cross-channel video adtech, players, integrated CMS platforms and media processing), when evaluated against tech vendor net revenues indicate positive operational margins have been maintained, currently estimated at 46% in 2015. (NOTE: This analysis pertains to tech payments only, and excludes subscription IP video service content licensing fees made to rights holders).
Publisher revenues utilized as a basis for multi-year marginal analysis are generated from the sale of video advertising (in-stream, in-banner, VOD, authenticated sign-in, viral and social), plus IP video subscription services or download-to-own stores.

IP video publishers are tasked to run very lean digital businesses, and have enough pricing leverage in the marketplace to secure favorable agreements across the entire tech vendor landscape; publishers can demand highly sophisticated and even customized solutions at near commodity prices.
Moreover, as the market works through rounds of tech consolidation, vendors have adopted business models and sell-in strategies offering their publisher partners generous and flexible pricing, often structured against performance incentives designed to drive down unit costs further as services scale.
IP video publishers, on average, generate $2.13 in combined advertising and subscription revenue for each $1 in tech vendor billings at present, though projected to decline through 2017.
