Movie & Video Distribution in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Movie & Video Distribution in Canada

Operators in the Movie and Video Distribution industry in Canada market and circulate video content to downstream exhibitors, including movie theatres, TV networks and retailers of physical media. Over the five years to 2019, the transition to digital content has diminished the relevance of content distributors as studios increasingly undertake in-house distribution activities. Digital platforms that enable consumers to indefinitely access media content have risen in popularity due to their convenience and wider selection of offerings. The resulting ubiquity of digital content has presented opportunities and challenges for content distributors. Streaming platforms that boast a wide library of content present new opportunities for growth. The digital transition is expected to mature over the five years to 2024. During this time, aggregate demand for TV and film content will increase.

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 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.
