This report is part of a series of IHS Technology insight reports based data presented in the IHS Technology Transactional Movie Market Monitor. Each report examines one of the four movie distribution platforms (theatrical, physical, TV-based VOD & digital) from a geographical perspective to further explore regional contributions and major trends driving worldwide consumption for transactional movies.


Transactional consumer spending on movies declined 2.2% in 2013 to $58.4bn.

  • But the worldwide total is forecast to increase to $61.6bn by 2017, a CAGR of 1.3%.

Consumer spending on transactional movies increased in two out of five regions in 2013.

  • The mature markets of  N America and W Europe declined by 2.8% and 2.5% respectively over 2012 - the result of deep declines for spending on physical discs.
  • Asia Pacific declined by 2.9% year-on-year; however, this is not representative of a decline in total consumption in the region. Both the decline of physical rental consumption in Japan and the softening of the Japanese Yen have made a significant impact on regional spending.
  • Transactional movie spending in CE Europe increased by 7.8% and L America showed year-on-year growth of 2.2%. However, these two regions combined still only captured a 7% share of worldwide transactional movie spending in 2013.

Movies generate the majority of filmed entertainment spending in five key world regions analyzed.

  • In 2013, movies accounted for 80% of total transactional movie spending in N America, 85% in Asia Pacific, 76% in W Europe, 94% in CE Europe and 89% in L America.

In this report:

  • Provides analysis on the total worldwide consumption of movies through transactional TV-based VOD platforms.
  • Outlines specific markets making an impact on the worldwide total for TV-based VOD movies.
  • Provides analysis on the current drivers of growth in non-mature movie markets.
