The industry consists of activities such as broadcast media, publishing, movies and entertainment, internet advertising, and other services. North America dominates the industry and represents 35% of the global industry share.

This report briefly discusses the subject companies, their geographic footprints, financial metrics, market performance, marketing and corporate strategies, and SWOT analysis. During the last five years, APAC witnessed the highest growth due to strong economic development in most of the regions and increased purchasing power of the population.

The industry faced some decline during the past years due to the global economic crisis that led to reduced income level, which affected media spending. Another important factor restricting the growth of the global media and entertainment is the high risk associated with increasing rivalry and competition between the top players of the market. Threat is associated with the intellectual properties of the companies which can be challenged, invalidated, or infringed by competitors.

Strong economic development in most countries boosted the purchasing power of the middle class population and evolved their consumption habits, which accelerated the influence of new media touch points.
