Recordable Media Manufacturing in the US
The Recordable Media Manufacturing industry includes the manufacturing of optical and magnetic media, such as CDs and DVDs, as well as the replication of software, audio, video or other data. The industry has declined over the past five years as its products are becoming increasingly obsolete in light of digital media formats and an ever-growing selection of online streaming options. In place of buying CDs or DVDs, consumers are now downloading or streaming entertainment and software. Technological advancements and the increase in the percentage of services conducted online have caused major declines for the industry as consumers opt to stream media over the internet. Over the next five years, the popularity of online services is projected to rise due to its affordability and convenience. Yet, the industry still has a glimmer of hope through the development of 3D movies.
