The global entertainment and media industry is expected to be worth US$2.23 trillion by 2019. Specifically, the filmed entertainment industry is forecasted to grow to $110.1 billion by the end of 2018. 

The entertainment industry has also transformed and developed with advancements in technologies. Online channels have grown rapidly as a means of distributing content – Hulu, Netflix (NFLX-US) and YouTube have achieved very high penetration rates in the US. The established players in the entertainment industry are also not sitting idle. Walt Disney (DIS-US) and 21st Century Fox (FOXA-US), both included in our Entertainment Vue, are some of the stakeholders behind Hulu, the fourth largest video streaming by household reach in the U.S.

While the major of the larger players are in the US, Asia is catching up. The Indian film industry, popularly known as Bollywood, is already the global leader in terms of the number of movies produced every year. Bollywood produces around 1000 movies a year, almost twice as much as Hollywood. The average Bollywood movie costs only $1.5 million to make, while Hollywood movies on average cost $47.7 million. The disparity exists on the revenue side too – Bollywood generated revenues of $3 billion in 2011, while Hollywood can make as much as $51 billion. That is set to change however. Average ticket prices for Bollywood movies are going up with rising incomes and affordability. Accessibility is also set to improve with better distribution.
