Global Movie Production & Distribution

Global Movie Production & Distribution

The Global Movie Production and Distribution industry creates and disseminates motion pictures to audiences across the world; therefore, it relies directly on discretionary spending. The industry suffered when disposable income dipped and stayed low due to the recession, especially in developed regions. Newly industrialized nations, such as Brazil, Russia, India and China, are rising quickly and are expected to support industry revenue expansion, but the widespread availability of free movies on the internet poses a threat to the industry.

This industry comprises establishments that primarily produce and distribute motion pictures. Distributors work with theatrical and home media entertainment products, including digital and physical versions. Movie producers also hold distribution rights to movie libraries that receive revenue from cable and network TV; however, companies that principally broadcast and produce TV content are excluded from this industry.

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.
