Movie & Video Production in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Movie & Video Production in the US

The Movie and Video Production industry has grown moderately over the five years to 2019, benefiting from steady demand for entertainment. However, the industry has also been 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. Slow box office growth has also made the industry more risk-averse in recent years. As a result, studio revenue has become more reliant on blockbusters, especially those based on existing creative properties. The focus on blockbusters has kept profit high over the past five years. Likewise, industry revenue has increased during the current period. Over the five years to 2024, industry revenue is forecast to continue to rise. Despite projected sluggish box office growth and declining physical copy sales, the industry will likely benefit from strong growth in foreign distribution during the outlook period.

Operators in this industry produce and distribute motion pictures and videos. This industry excludes third-party distributors and disc manufacturers and products produced for TV, such as TV shows and made-for-TV movies.

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.
