Roll the credits: Continued competition from streaming services will likely constrain the industry's growth potential

The Movie Theaters industry has grown over the five years to 2019, despite strong external competition. With increases in per capita disposable income and the success of blockbuster films during the period, industry revenue has grown despite competition from substitute film viewing methods, other forms of entertainment and a decrease in total theater attendance. The most competitive operators focus on keeping their projection and audio systems upgraded, which will continue to drive capital investment over the five years to 2024. In addition, over the next five years, the industry will continue to benefit from rising per capita disposable income, driving demand for ticket sales and concession items.

This industry comprises businesses that primarily show movies. It includes cinemas, drive-in and outdoor movie theaters and film festival exhibitors.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
