Sony Pictures Entertainment led all other film companies in worldwide market share in 2012, with its films collecting $4.4 billion in ticket sales.
The studio, enjoying its best year ever in terms of box-office grosses, also was No. 1 in market share in North America, where its titles generated $1.77 billion in revenue.
Eon Productions’ James Bond pic Skyfall led the way with north of $1 billion in global grosses. Sony co-financed the movie with MGM.
Sony’s No. 2 title was The Amazing Spider-Man, which successfully relaunched the franchise in grossing $752.2 million globally. Up next was MIB 3, which earned $624 worldwide. Other highlights included Hotel Transylvania ($312.6 million) and 21 Jump Street ($201.6 million).
Warner Bros. came in No. 2 in worldwide and domestic market share ($4.25 billion), followed by 20th Century Fox ($3.7 billion). Fox placed No. 1 in market share internationally ($2.72 billion).
Disney’s films generated $3.6 billion in global ticket sales, including $2.08 billion overseas.
Universal, also enjoying its best year ever in terms of box-office grosses, followed with $3.13 billion in worldwide ticket sales.
Paramount placed last with $2.4 billion in worldwide grosses.
While a point of pride for studios, market share doesn’t necessarily translate into profitability.
