DUBLIN – Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Analyzing the US Media & Advertising Industry” report to their offering.
The Media & Entertainment (M&E) sector of the US is one of the largest sectors in its economy and is well entrenched. However there is increasingly being seen a radical transformation of this sector, and the prime trigger has been the advent of digitalization. In the coming years, the combination of new digital distribution modalities and evolving audience consumption habits and demands will continue to challenge traditional Media & Entertainment business models.
Current figures show that internet display advertising has continued to lead growth relative to other means of advertising like cable television, magazines and newspapers.
2010 is expected to be a year for a lot of contrasts in this industry as some business are expected to grow whilst other deteriorate. The more mature media outlets such as publishing and traditional advertising are likely to struggle for survival, but on the other hand, Internet upstarts and game companies likely will be riding a wave of digital success, either absolute or comparative.
The recession has also affected this industry and according to AdAge DataCenters analysis of figures by the Bureau of Labor Statistics it has cut 65,100 jobs so far since the recession began in December 2007. Newspapers cut the most jobs in the media industry, culling 31,200 positions, but here to the digital contrast is apparent as Internet-media companies added 5,400 jobs, or 7%, since the recession began.
There is, however, a worry for the M&E sector associated with the continuing evolution of the Internet as an entertainment source: While a great deal of what is currently watched by large audiences on the Internet is professionally-produced content, more and more people may be motivated by increased free time and decreased resources to find other forms of free entertainment, including participating in and consuming user-generated content, social networking and Web-based fantasy pursuits.
