Global Entertainment and Media Outlook: 2006-2010 


The global entertainment and media (E&M) industry is now into a solid growth phase and will increase at a 6.6% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to $1.8 trillion in 2010, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers' Global Entertainment and Media Outlook: 2006-2010.

The forecast's key findings include:

Digital and mobile distribution will become a significant component of the entertainment and media market, fueled by rising broadband and wireless subscribership.

Economic growth will support spending in the near term, but higher gasoline prices are raising the cost of purchasing products away from home, and maturation in the recovery will lead to slower entertainment and media growth during 2009-10.

Physical formats will continue to dominate, but growth will be slow as consumers migrate to digital and mobile distribution

Outlook covers the following industry segments:

Filmed Entertainment
TV Networks: Broadcast and Cable
TV Distribution
Recorded Music
Radio and Out-of-Home Advertising
Internet Advertising and Access Spending
Video Games
