Digital rights management (DRM) is a software program or technology-enabled system that controls and monitors unlawful digital material access. DRM enables the management, monitoring, organization, and dissemination of digital content, with systems installed on-premise, in the cloud, or in a hybrid format. Health care, BFSI, government, media & entertainment, and retail & consumers are among the industries that can profit from the digital rights management software. The media and entertainment industries are the most prevalent users of digital rights management. This is partly due to the enormous volume of information produced, its widespread internet distribution, and the expanding number of media and entertainment organizations, all of which raise the desire for improved control over photos, videos, and audios from many sources.

During the projection period, the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to boost the market growth. Many sectors have seen a big beneficial shift in their companies as a result of the Covid-19 epidemic. The digital rights management sector has grown significantly as a result. Furthermore, some incidences of cybercrime have been reported. The cyber danger has grown as every demographic has sought information on COVID-19 utilizing a malicious domain name registered with names like COVID-19 or coronavirus. Furthermore, in recent years, identical commercial email accounts have been exploited to carry out cyber-attacks. As cyber dangers become more prevalent, more businesses are using digital rights management systems to prevent hazards and risks.


The video-on-demand category led the worldwide digital rights management market share in 2021 and is likely to retain its dominance in the future years. It safeguards video material while assuring seamless transmission and playback. It also prevents the viewing of these videos on portable media devices. This characteristic of video protection is pushing the development of DRM technologies.

The mobile content area is especially important in the industry. As smartphones become more popular, massive volumes of sensitive data containing sensitive information are created. As a result, several data security flaws emerge. DRM technology protects mobile content from cyber-attacks.

Sub-departments are common in large corporations. For their operations to run well, these departments must coordinate with other departments both within and outside the corporation. Various firms are progressively embracing DRM solutions to control the data of huge enterprises' enormous client base. Large firms primarily focus on serving their clients and enhancing their entire experience with the company in order to efficiently serve to a large number of consumers, which promotes the market's growth. The growing use of the cloud in major companies has raised concerns about data security in the cloud.

The media and entertainment categories are expected to lead the market by end-use during the forecast period of 2023-2030. The segment's expansion can be attributed to high-speed internet access and the increasing usage of subscription-based entertainment products. This is due to increased internet speed and the growing popularity of subscription-based entertainment technologies.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
