Video rental still significant channel in USA European rental unable to recoverSeptember 23, 2014The US physical video market remains as rental focused in 2014 as it was in 2005. Despite an average annual decline of 7% in consumer spend on packaged media rentals share of spend remains virtually unchanged at 37% in 2014 compared to 36% in 2005. However, in key European markets video rental has declined faster than the overall market decline. Video rental in Europe was never as popular as in the US, and has become even less so, with share of video consumer spending declining from 20% of spend in 2005 to 11% in 2014. This divergent story of rental in two of the leading developed markets for packaged media has several key factors, including the success of kiosk rentals in the US and rental in Europe being a stigmatic proposition.Subscribers Only
