Why Media?

The entertainment and media sectors are an established and important part of the UK economy, accounting for more than £54 billion of economic output which is approximately 4% of GDP. The sector is expected to grow by 3.1% per annum over the next 5 years.

The PWC 2017 Global Entertainment & Media Outlook predict the UK sector will grow at a compound rate of 3% per annum over the next 5 years to be worth £72 billion by 2021. Digital services will account for over 60% of all spend in the sector growing at 5.8% CAGR per annum.

Within the wider industry, the worldwide music publishing industry has grown by 5.3% over the last 4 years, supported by new methods of monetising music publishing royalties from online broadcasts and streaming in addition to the traditional sources of revenue – for example, from TV broadcasts and record sales. Similarly, the global demand for television programmes has grown by 5% in the last 5 years, and increasingly discerning consumers are demanding higher quality television productions which are achieving higher prices supported by additional advertising or subscription revenues for broadcasters.
