Media & Entertainment Analytics, Data and Research

Home Video Market Insights, Analysis and Forecasts

Home entertainment consumption trends are changing, revenues from packaged video continue to see erosion in favour of new platforms and services. Established competition is being threatened by new entrants and business model experimentation is creating greater consumer choice but more industry complexity. Consumer consumption is also seeing a radical shift; the explosive rise in tablet and smartphone penetration is providing more ways for consumers to access content and more opportunities for vendors to monetise the consumer. The fragmented nature of this new digital era means access to reliable insights and metrics is essential for effective strategic planning.
