According to the US entertainment and media outlook: 2016-2020, the film industry can anticipate plenty of movement over the next five years.
Predominant areas of growth in the film industry include box office revenue and electronic home entertainment. Event cinema and video game adaptations are also growing rapidly and represent future profitability for film. Another area of niche growth in the US is local-language content, as US studios continue to invest heavily in local-language production throughout the world. However, while the industry in general will continue to see growth, the Outlook predicts the US to lose its position as top market in 2017 to China.
