China Entertainment & Media Outlook 2019-2023

Getting personal: Putting the me in entertainment and media

Findings and analysis from China’s perspective

Covering 14 core entertainment and media segments in 53 territories worldwide, the year’s 20th edition of the Global Entertainment & Media Outlook reveals the major implications of this individualised world for E&M businesses.

It’s clear from the Outlook that the rise of increasingly personal — and personalised — media interactions, fuelled by technology and evolving customer behaviour, shows no signs of abating. We expect it will be amplified in the years ahead by the forces of technology, scale, and aggressive investing and competition.

Here you will find the major entertainment and media industry trends in China and our predictions for the next 5 years.
