The Movie and Video Distribution industry is undergoing a digital revolution. In addition to increasing external competition, diminishing demand for DVDs and slow growth in downstream markets such as movie theaters, have negatively affected industry performance. As movie and TV production increases over the next five years, demand for content distribution provided by the industry will also grow. Likewise, demand for video is projected to rise, as mobile devices and greater internet connectivity make television and movie content more accessible to viewers. However, increasing external competition from studios, which will continue to manage and distribute content in-house, will limit revenue growth.
This industry primarily circulates audiovisual works to cinemas, TV networks, other exhibitors and stores. The industry excludes movie and TV distributors that are also involved in audiovisual content production and retailers, rental stores and merchant wholesalers that distribute prerecorded physical media and music distributors. This industry does not include in-house distribution departments.
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.
