Futuresource Video Insights Japan

Date Published:

Japan’s home video market remains the second largest in the world after the USA, at USD $4 billion in consumer spend. The dynamics of the sector remain different to many other markets, with the robust packaged video continuing to be a key pillar. SVoD is driving the growth in the digital landscape, but the transition to transactional digital services remains relatively slow and lags other developed territories despite witnessing a boost during the pandemic. 2022 looks set for a stronger performance as the sector stabilizes after a volatile two years.

  • Subscription video on demand (SVoD)
