The shift in consumer preferences towards streaming media in their own devices acts as a restraint in the set-top box market since it reduces the demand for traditional set-top boxes. As consumers increasingly opt for their own devices, such as smartphones and tablets to stream videos there is a reduction in need for separate device to access television content. This trend has caused a decline in sales of set-top boxes and is expected to hamper the market as streaming devices continue to improve and offer more features.
