Similarly, the study revealed that even though sitcom has garnered popularity amongst the moviegoers yet crime drama, Sci-fi drama, and fantasy drama are the majority of demand expressed subgenres.

In this, we can find that the Canadian content travels extremely well with 29.9% global travelability rate which is over 10% more than the travelability rate of American content and the top audiences of the Canadian content are North America, LATAM, Europe and Oceania.

Though Newcomers like the DC universe are expected to make some significant contributions this year. A detailed study on the market is under the subheads below.

SVOD platforms

USA Market demand share, content travelability and trending sub genre

Analyzing the research figures on the average global travelability of the American content it was found to be 20%, and these contents travel best to the Anglosphere markets like Canada and the UK.

There are around ten subgenres that have the highest demand share from US audiences for all TV titles including SVOD platforms, cable and broadcast titles and to mention sitcom, sci-fi drama, a fantasy drama, crime drama, superhero series, Japanese anime, children genre are a few.

With 8.6% of all expressed demand in the market and 0.2% less than the global average of all expressed demand in the US market sitcom has the most significant demand share. The US audiences prefer mostly Sci-fi dramas and anime, and both of these genres have a demand share of 3.9% higher than the global average.

Original platforms for digital original series

As we analyzed the charts and graphs representing the US market demand share by the original platform for all digital series, Netflix undoubtedly rises to be the largest with a 68% market demand while amazon prime stands second highest with 10% market demand share followed by Hulu at 9%.

In late 2018, DC universe paced up clearly into the market demand share space amidst the already performing OTT platforms which indicate a future invasion into the market.

Netflix’s chilling adventures of Sabrina was the most in-demand original series in the US with up to 30 times the demand of an average title in the US which has been referred to be an “outstanding” demand.

Children’s title Voltron also appealed to a lot of audiences in the US, and the feature-length conclusion to sense8 helped in the higher ranking of the series.

Original platforms for drama digital originals

The charts distinctly depict that Netflix still dominated this genre with a 63% of demand share for drama digital original titles which is the majority of demand expressed in the US market.

This is followed by amazon prime video with 13% of market demand and Hulu by 12% in the genre. The 24-month graphical representation of demand share shows that Netflix managed to stay at the top and maintain 60% share of drama demand in the USA.

Original platforms for action/adventure digital originals

The report shows a new OTT player in the space where only Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu dominated mostly. The action/adventure genre digital originals have DC universe elevated above amazon prime with a market demand share of 11% in 2018.

Netflix has a share of 69%, yet the gradual downfall of its dominance of the OTT is evident after the newcomer took a position right at the top of the list thus emerging as a quality content creator among all OTT players.


Briefly, Netflix continues to dominate SVOD platforms releasing web series and video steaming almost globally, but 2019 will witness dozens of major studios in the US that will launch shows, streams, and other SVOD platforms services. These launches will prove themselves to be disruptive forces in the pattern of digital series originals leading the market. There is a possibility that this stable market may get fragmented with the new entrants and OTT players. All we wish for is just some more mind stirring and heart-warming series streaming on our laptops while we sip that coffee in the coziest corner of the house.
