The 2018-2022 PwC Entertainment and Media Outlook projects:
- The global cinema industry is expected to experience a steady increase in revenues over the forecast period. Total cinema revenue in the US will remain stable through 2022 in spite of unstable market conditions. We can expect to see modest revenue growth over the forecast period at a 1.8% CAGR, reaching US$12.3B by 2022.
- Hollywood-made films will continue to dominate global box office, but these films will increasingly both be set and shot abroad.
- The Hollywood majors, which have traditionally relied on theatrical releases to drive their films through the ancillary pipelines, are now scaling up as they look to compete with Netflix and Amazon.
- Though admissions have been falling, rising ticket prices and an increase in film production have helped to conceal the drop.
The film industry statistics report covers global filmed entertainment growth by region (North America, EMEA - Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and Latin America) and highlights the standout changes in market growth per year by region.
