Video Streaming Market Segmentation
Grand View Research has segmented the global video streaming market based on streaming type, solution, platform, service, revenue model, deployment type, user, and region:
Based on the Streaming Type Insights, the market is segmented into Live Video Streaming and Non-Linear Video Streaming

- Live content such as sports and musical events have preserved the high importance of live video streaming. However, non-linear streaming is expected to demonstrate significant growth over the coming years owing to the convenience and series linking. Several other factors that fuel the growth of the non-linear streaming segment in the industry include watch-time feasibility, no buffering, large capacity, and live pause. Moreover, video-on-demand is expected to become mainstream in all age-group populations with both the streaming types.
