Following consumer disinterest in 3D film and shifting interest from TV to online content at the beginning of the five-year period to 2017, many studios have repositioned their client base toward the increasing number of online streaming services and advertisers that require editing services for their productions, boosting revenue for the Video Postproduction Services industry. While this new range of digital postproduction activities has created a pressing need for highly skilled postproduction teams that are familiar with new digital effects rendering, the market has simultaneously been flooded with professional editing software and increasingly affordable hardware. Over the next five years, the industry's revenue growth will be hindered largely by industries that elect to perform basic postproduction services in-house. This has become increasingly common among producers of major motion pictures, although blockbuster action films still consult the industry for its diligent, frame-by-frame postproduction skills.
The Video Postproduction Services industry includes businesses that prepare motion pictures for public distribution by performing editing, subtitling, closed captioning, animation and other special effects services. Companies that are involved in movie or television production and perform postproduction activities in-house are excluded from this industry.
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.
