Rapid growth in digital media and internet connectivity globally have created immense opportunities for content publishers and content distribution partners to grow their creative media content.

These challenges are compelling content owners to seek and exercise control over the unauthorized access and distribution of content.

In the past few years, the demand for Digital Rights Management (DRM) solutions has gained immense prominence among content owners and content distribution service providers as DRMs secure real-time streaming services over insecure networks. DRM solutions also offer secure distribution of media content while maintaining the authentication and privacy rights of content owners. The persistent protection offered is also influencing several streaming service providers to adopt DRM solutions.

Moreover, the growing awareness about digital piracy among users is driving the adoption of DRM solutions globally. Several governments globally are looking for ways to establish stringent standards and policies to prevent digital piracy. For instance, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, passed in 1998, still helps content developers, content acquirers, and content distributors to secure their content and criminalize the dissemination of content intended to bypass the control access of copyright content. The rising number of such standards and increasing awareness about content privacy and digital piracy are expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.
