Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

For instance, it is increasingly dominated by subscription packages rather than free-to-air broadcasts and has come to include video-on-demand services provided on screens other than TVs. The switch to digital TV has had the biggest influence on the industry, allowing the number of new channels to increase rapidly and changing the sources of broadcasters' revenue. Industry revenue is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 2.4% over the five years through 2016-17, reaching £12.6 billion, including growth of 2.5% in the current year... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The industry has a medium level of capital intensity. IBISWorld estimates that the average broadcaster will operate with a capital-to-labour ratio of 0.25:1 in 2016-17.

Capital costs are higher than the historical average because the digital changeover required expensive new infrastructure. Labour costs have also risen in recent years.

Historically, the industry's main capital requirement has been server infrastructure.
