Education and Entertainment
In today's world people really only want two things, education and entertainment.
The entertainment business relies on people actually going to events in order to make money in many different areas. This featured movie theaters and sporting events, which respectively brought in the highest money for many artists and performers.
These events are now challenging to plan due to numerous limitations on public gatherings and travel, both globally and inside individual nations.
Many participants in those industries have chosen to put their attention toward streaming as their strategy. 'Over-the-top' video programming is quickly overtaking traditional movie viewing as the most popular format.
In the United States, OTT video income for media and entertainment including HBO Go, Hulu, and Netflix) hit $20.1 billion in 2017, an increase of 15.2 percent from the year before.
Although 3experts anticipate that as the industry matures, growth rates will start to drop, revenues in this sector are anticipated to reach $30.6 billion in 2022.
Since the introduction of Instagram Live concerts, many musicians are now placing a higher priority on digital performances to interact with their fans and restore their financial stability.
Even stand-up comedy, which few would have believed could be performed without an audience, is now possible thanks to Zoom and other video-conferencing tools.
Production and creativity
The entertainment sector is well ahead of that curve, as seen by digital platforms like YouTube that let performers like actors, singers, and musicians show off their skills without having to deal with the usual gatekeepers.
Additionally, several services have been developed to enable performers to purchase things like ghost-produced songs that they may utilize without any limitations or to engage employees like producers, composers, and voiceover actors on the cheap.
Crowdfunding has also changed, with platforms like Kickstarter and others garnering millions to fund entertainment ventures (up to 20 percent of all their projects). The largest crowdfunded movie (to date), Veronica Mars, garnered $5.7 million.
The shift to digital consumption is likely to be fuelled by an even faster acceleration by the deployment of 5G networks across the world.
The increased reliance on smartphones is also another factor that is likely to have the same effect. In 2012, the time spent on mobile engaging with media was 1.6 hours a day. In 2018, that number had more than doubled to 3.3 hours a day.
