Global Movie Production & Distribution - Industry Market Research Report

Global Movie Production & Distribution

The Global Movie Production and Distribution industry creates and disseminates motion pictures and its success hinges on the discretionary spending of moviegoers around the world. The industry suffers most when disposable income and leisure time among moviegoers fall. Revenue is expected to increase over the five years to 2018. The industry's methods of distribution are rapidly evolving. Technological change, particularly in online viewership, has shifted many consumers' spending habits away from traditional cinemas in favor of at-home systems. The industry has been plagued by illegal online piracy of its copyrighted works. Studios are expected to rely heavily on holiday blockbusters and soft reboots of popular film franchises to generate greater consumer interest and higher box office sales; industry revenue is anticipated to increase over the five years to 2023.

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.
