The performance of the Film, Video and TV Programme Post-Production industry is influenced by demand from key downstream markets, technological developments and the competitive position afforded to the industry by tax incentives. IBISWorld expects industry revenue to grow at a compound annual rate of 8.4% over the five years through 2015-16 to reach £1.4 billion. This includes forecast growth of 1.1% in the current year. However, the relatively strong growth rate over the past five years disguises the large swings in demand from the industry's main markets.
Firms in this industry engage in post-production activities such as editing, film and tape transfers, titling, subtitling, and adding credits and closed captions. Animation, special effects and computer-generated graphics are also included in the industry. Some companies operate motion-picture film laboratories for motion-picture and animated-film makers and stock footage libraries. The processing and developing of motion-picture film are also included in the industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
