Hit pause: Consolidation of upstream media companies will likely harm industry demand
Movie & Video Distribution in the US The Movie and Video Distribution industry continues to suffer from external competition as digital technology enables production studios to distribute their own content and bypass industry operators. Moreover, growth in key markets, such as retail stores and movie theaters, remains weak, suppressing demand for distribution services. Curtailed by distributor bypass and declining sales of physical copies of media, industry revenue is forecast to drop in 2019. To support revenue and offset waning demand for distribution, the industry has increased its reliance on independent productions and existing content libraries. Digital platforms that enable consumers to indefinitely access media content have risen in popularity due to their convenience and wide selection of offerings. These platforms have the potential to boost consumption of movies, offering a source of growth for the industry. Over the five years to 2024, growth in demand for TV and media content will partly offset distributor bypass. Furthermore, the continued trend toward digitalization, although a threat to revenue, will cut time and costs for distribution companies, helping to maintain profit. Proliferating alternative media outlets, such as on-demand and online TV, will offer new opportunities to distributors but will also spur competition.
The Movie and Video Distribution industry primarily circulates audiovisual works to cinemas, TV networks, other exhibitors and stores. The industry excludes movie and TV distributors that are also involved in audiovisual content production; retailers, rental stores and merchant wholesalers that distribute prerecorded physical media; and music distributors.
