The DVD Game and Movie Rental industry is expected to decline over the five years to 2016. The convenience and instant access of Video on Demand and established presence of streaming media have decimated industry demand and forced former major players to bankruptcy. Consumers are increasingly opting to rent movies and games from video streaming applications and downloaded media, which can be viewed or enjoyed across a range of digital platforms. Streaming applications and downloaded media will continue to capture an increasing share of industry demand over the five years to 2021. As operators cut the number of employees and reduce their operations, the remaining operators are anticipated to focus on niche, hard-to-find films that are not typically offered by streaming sites and kiosks to remain competitive.
This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in renting prerecorded video tapes, games and discs for home electronic equipment.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
