Posted by at 1:13 pm on August 16, 2010

Middle East nations, Africa, and Pakistan (MEAP) are far ahead of other regions in terms of interest in, and ownership of, 3DTVs, says a new study from Nielsen. Younger consumers, those ages 25-29, have the highest interest and intent.

“This report provides one of the broadest looks at how consumers watch video, to date,” says Matt O’Grady, who oversees the integration of Nielsen’s TV, online and mobile audience measurement. “The research reveals how connected consumers all over the world are expanding their video experience across screens.”

Other Key Findings

  • Online Video: approximately 70% of global online consumers watch online video; but North Americans and Europeans lag in adoption. More than half of global online consumers watch online video in the workplace.
  • Mobile Video: is already used by 11% of global online consumers: penetration is highest in Asia-Pacific and among consumers in their late 20s.
  • Tablet PCs: are expanding the definition of mobile video. Globally, 11% of online consumers already own or plan to purchase a tablet PC (such as an iPad) in the next year.
  • Television: is a universally important platform for video consumption, with connected consumers in many markets spending 4+ hours per day watching television.
  • HDTV (High-Definition TV): is improving the TV viewing experience for as many as 30% of global online consumers. Adoption is highest among older consumers and in North America, where HD content has proliferated.
