DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4drq6m/european_tv) has announced the addition of the "European TV Production: Market Profile and Forecast 2014" report to their offering.
The outlook for the European TV Production market has improved in the past year since our previous study on the market was published. The market is now over €15bn in value and a strengthening macroeconomic environment has fed through to more optimistic views on future advertising revenues and other drivers - which is reflected in our latest market forecasts.
The last twelve months has been an exciting period for the industry with several large acquisitions taking place. In part, this has reflected ongoing consolidation in what is still a fragmented industry. It has also seen some financial investors taking advantage of better market conditions to achieve delayed exits. But perhaps most interestingly, large media groups are increasingly seeing value in getting involved in production. Examples of the latter trend include US-based groups such as Warner Bros, who have obtained access to valuable non-scripted formats from creative European producers and broadcasters such as ITV which has built on its strength in production to lead its turnaround. However, despite consolidation, the market remains relatively fragmented with no group having a global market share approaching 10% and there is also a long tail of smaller independents in most countries.
Key trends which the study analyses and comments on include the increasingly international nature of the industry, development of new funding models such as deficit funding, increasing importance of digital rights and the impact of IPTV.
The research includes detailed profiles of the leading super-indies such as FremantleMedia, Endemol, All3Media, Shine, Banijay, Zodiak Media and Eyeworks. These set out their international networks, key shows, strategies, and revenues, based on interviews with market experts as well as published information.
