The Movie and Video Production industry has grown moderately over the five years to 2017, benefiting from steady demand for entertainment but challenged by disruption to its traditional distribution channels. Box office sales have grown sluggishly, mainly as a result of higher ticket prices rather than increased attendance. Studios are placing bigger bets on action movies, especially in on-trend genres such as superhero films, which bring both domestic consumers to theaters and have staying power in foreign markets. The focus on blockbusters has improved profit over the past five years. However, in the coming years it will make studios more vulnerable to profit losses, given the fast-changing nature of consumer tastes. Over the five years to 2022, the industry is expected to sustain modest growth. Shifting domestic distribution channels, including a sluggish box office, will continue to pose a challenge for the industry. Meanwhile, new digital players that have already inched into film production will pose a threat to major studios unlike any they have faced since the premier of the talkie.
