Global Entertainment & Media Outlook

Resetting expectations, refocusing inward and recharging growth

In the midst of continued change and disruption in 2022, the global entertainment and media (E&M) industry reassessed its strategies, refocused on core operations and revised some key assumptions. Industry players are doing so by tapping into the many geographical and sectoral growth hotspots and by harnessing emerging technology. 

Our 24th annual Global Entertainment & Media Outlook offers an in-depth look at how reset expectations and recharged growth will affect 13 E&M segments across 53 countries and territories over the next five years. Help shape your strategies by exploring our findings, which uncover the latest trends, key perspectives and insights into the E&M market.
