Movie & Video Distribution in Canada
Over the five years to 2018, the transition to digital content has diminished the relevance of content distributors as studios increasingly undertake in-house distribution activities. Demand for physical copies of media is also quickly diminishing due to the consumer shift to online platforms. As a result, industry revenue is expected to stagnate. The digital transition is expected to mature over the five years to 2023. During this time, aggregate demand for TV and film content will increase, enabling greater demand for distribution services. Digital distribution to a wide range of platforms is forecast to provide modest opportunity to the industry, although this will be offset by lower demand from production studios that will choose to manage their own content. Ultimately, vertically integrated production studios and the obsolescence of most of the industry's services will contribute to a dramatic decline in demand.
This industry primarily circulates audiovisual works to cinemas, TV networks, other exhibitors and stores.
