The days of scouring the shelves of the local movie rental store are over for many Australians, as the Video and DVD Hire Outlets industry succumbs to substitution by other delivery systems. Many of the larger industry players are exploring alternative delivery models to maintain market share and leverage on their knowledge of the short-term rental business. This includes expanding into DVD rental kiosks (vending machines) and online movie streaming instead of the traditional bricks-and-mortar video hire shops.
The industry consists of businesses and vendors mainly engaged in hire and sales of pre-recorded video DVDs, HD Blu-ray products and games for personal use only. Operators also sell general merchandise such as snack food and drinks. Businesses can operate through a variety of mediums including stores, kiosks, and mail order.
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.
