Infonetics Research's report "Cable, Satellite, IPTV, and OTT Set-Top Boxes and Subscribers" indicates that the global set-top box market declined 10.2% in 1Q11 to $3.1 billion, primarily attributed to normal seasonal trends. The cable STB segment continues to contract as subscriber growth remains limited across the North America and EMEA markets and demand slows for advanced services; as such, the cable STB segment experienced the strongest sequential revenue declines, down 12.9% in 1Q11.

Motorola and Pace continue to battle it out for overall STB market leadership, with Motorola leading in revenue and Pace leading in unit shipments. Cisco is the market share leader in both revenue and shipments in the IP STB market.
