This report majorly focuses on hot issues in the entertainment industry along with consumer analysis which details how, where and why consumers are buying entertainment products. It has been analyzed that fast broadband connections have opened up a whole new way of getting content, producing a plethora of streaming services. As per the recent analyst’s findings, the U.K. retail entertainment market, which excludes streaming services, is forecast to decline over the next five years. Also, all subcategories within the market are expected to decline by double digits between 2017 and 2022. Major categories include live entertainment, broadcasting television, internet streaming, music, movies, new media, radio, animation, gaming and others.

The study further identifies that consumers are increasingly content with streaming music rather than owning it – over a quarter of consumers surveyed felt there was no point in owning music anymore. Furthermore almost a third stated they felt subscription services (such as Spotify) are the future of buying music. Though the market decline is slackening, consumers continue to shy away from purchasing physical music as using subscription services becomes the standard with more retailers investing in this service. With 89m smartphones in the UK in 2021 advertisers continue to channel their spending online and especially in mobile. Mobile advertising will be one of the largest and rapid growing sectors in the coming years.
