Roku Leads Streaming Media Device Market, Apple Falls To Fourth Behind Google And Amazon

The report states that the top four manufacturers account for a total of 86 percent of sales on these devices. This market saturation by the big players means there are significant obstacles for newer competitors, who will have to distinguish themselves with new functionalities.

As Barbara Kraus, director of research at Parks Associates noted in the report:

"The market consolidation around these four brands forces new entrants to develop more creative features and functionality to tap into the strong consumer demand for streaming content. Devices with additional functionality such as the Intel Compute Stick may be a sign of things to come, where streaming is not the primary function but an extra feature to provide additional value."
