This global video switch market research report explores the dynamics, outlook and growth opportunities for video switcher technologies.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, it radically altered the dynamics of the global production switcher market. Although it caused significant disruption to live events - a key contributor to demand in the video splitters and switchers market - it also prompted businesses to seek opportunities for growth in non-traditional verticals. These included corporate, government and education, as well as the newly ascending creator economy.

To provide a strategic framework for its video switcher clients, Futuresource Consulting has produced this report based on direct quantitative and qualitative feedback from vendors and component suppliers. The research is backed up by supplemental analysis and forecasting from the firm’s broadcast and professional video equipment team.

Emerging from the pandemic era, the overall market experiences dynamic changes as end-user behaviours at each end of the spectrum trend in different directions.
