Motion Picture & Theatrical Equipment Rental

The Motion Picture and Theatrical Equipment Rental industry serves producers of filmed entertainment and live performances. The majority of the industry's rentals are of camera, sound and lighting equipment. The industry has experienced growth over the five years to 2018, as the emergence of video streaming platforms and increased demand for video content have led to a surge in independent producers, who are more likely to lack equipment inventories and instead rent for their project's needs. Over the five years to 2023, industry revenue is projected to increase.

This industry includes companies that primarily rent out equipment used in movie or theater production including lighting, sound, stage platforms, musical instruments, props and costumes. Businesses that primarily rent out audio or video recording equipment are not included in 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.
