The German Video Streaming Industry: Current Market Landscape

Mintel’s video streaming industry analysis shows that over all, TV-channels are still more popular than streaming, but mid-to-older aged Germans are increasingly following younger viewers online, pointing to further video streaming market growth.

However, under intense competition with other digital entertainment options such as social media and gaming, streaming services’ reach among younger age groups and video streaming market share has been declining. Our video streaming Germany market forecast predicts that the shift to online streaming will be increasingly ubiquitous by 2028. With a growing number of providers, it is likely that smaller, unprofitable services get taken over by bigger players.

Video Streaming Report Germany: What Consumers Want and Why

In their video streaming industry analysis, Mintel’s experts show that amid rising costs of living, consumers are becoming more selective with their spending on entertainment, with many cancelling their streaming subscriptions, whereas others are spending more time watching shows/movies on streaming services. In the light of rising prices, the video streaming industry finds itself in competition with free options such as social media. Video streaming market share is especially declining among younger users.

According to our video streaming report, younger Germans in particular are driven by a fear of missing out by not having watched a show/movie everyone talks about, which sees social media and recommendations from friends/family being their leading sources to find something to watch.

  • Video Streaming Industry Trends: 34% of Germans are now spending more time watching shows/movies on streaming services.
  • Video Streaming Germany Consumer Behaviour: The video streaming industry’s reach on younger consumers is declining – 27% of consumers are cancelling their video streaming subscriptions.
  • Video Streaming Market Challenges: Other online entertainment options are gaining video streaming market share, drawing in viewers with their free content – 93% of 16 to 24-year-old social media users follow or frequently view content from social media personalities.

Video Streaming Market Opportunities

Germans across age groups continue to spend more time consuming online media, keeping up video streaming industry growth, and offering particular opportunities for streaming services to grow their audience among mid-to-older aged consumers. However, video streaming market share among younger consumers is declining. Streaming services can capitalise on peer orientation by allowing users to follow others on their platforms. Seeing what films/shows their friends have watched or liked can make the content feel more relevant for younger consumers.

Mintel’s video streaming Germany market forecast shows that AI will be a game changer for the video streaming industry with regards to cutting costs by using it to generate and edit content. With a growing number of providers entering the video streaming market, screen time competition will further increase. Providers managing to position their content as culturally indispensable will have an edge over the competition.
