International reports forecast a positive development for the global entertainment and media market between 2022 and 2025. The data shows that its value is expected to grow within that period reaching the 2.6 US$tn – a 5% CAGR between 2020 and 2025 (Pwc Report, 2021). Thus, it seems that some promising opportunities will appear on the horizon of companies in the entertainment and media sector or linked to it.
One of the main factors contributing to the positive tendency expected in the global entertainment and media market is that consumer habits are continuously linked to digital products and services. Thus, they are pushing the digital transformation of the entertainment and media sector and the business models making it worth to keep an eye on the forecasts in the reports and prepare business strategies accordingly.
In 2021, the entertainment and media market has witnessed major transactions, acquisitions and mergers of companies that will provide momentum for the coming years – especially between telecommunications companies and content creators. New or renewed companies backed by billions of dollars will be major players not only in content production but also in the creation of new digital platforms.
If until now, everything pointed to the fact that the big beneficiaries would entirely be the large tech companies, we must not forget that the implementation of regulatory measures at the international level – independent in each country – between 2020 and 2021, will somehow curb the great power of these companies resulting in a chance for small/medium-sized businesses, start-ups, and local commerce to grow as well.
Regarding content formats, the reports highlight the audience preferences towards the ease and convenience of podcasts compared to the rather inflexible classic radio stations. The audio content landscape is said to become more diversified due to platforms specialized in specific topics and also interdisciplinary ones where users can find content about a variety of topics in a single place.
It is also worth mentioning platforms that disseminate authentic content or content produced by individual content creators. They are booming as the content creators come up with clever tactics to attract large audiences and the trend, as the data shows, is expected to continue.
Staying within the comfort zone is not a good business strategy in a market that continues to advance. In this sense, media monitoring solutions are one step towards increasing business opportunities, embracing digital transformation, benefiting the clients and leveraging market growth.
Media monitoring allows to closely follow the progress of the entertainment and media market. Furthermore, users can track the development of their topics of interest within a broad range of information sources – from digital audio, text and video content to traditional broadcast media. Thus, a company can be aware of a good part of the audience’s habits, they can gain knowledge of what content reaches them and what should reach them regarding, for example, their own company.
