Overall revenue and EBITDA dollars have continued to climb steadily for media and entertainment companies while many other industries are continuing to struggle through a difficult economic period.


In 2013, it is estimated that the media and entertainment industry will outperform the major cross-industry stock market indices, according to Ernst & Young Global Limited. The 10 sectors of the media and entertainment industry measured by EY are expected to have a 2013 estimated profit margin of 26% followed by the S&P 500 Index, 24%; FTSE 100 Index, 23%; CAC 40 Index, 18%; DAX 30 Index, 16%; and the Nikkei Index, 12%.

“Media and entertainment companies are maintaining and growing their businesses primarily by growing their digital revenues and scaling back overhead associated with traditional media,” said John Nendick, Global Media and Entertainment Leader at EY. “In emerging markets, increases in advertising, as well as rising incomes and media consumption, have also helped drive revenue and fuel long-term growth as consumers in mature markets continue to migrate toward digital,” he added.

The report provides specific insight into each of the 10 media and entertainment sectors, identifying opportunities, challenges and outlook for future growth. Highlights include:

Interactive media companies are seeing strong growth from an increase in online advertising.
EBITDA dollars for electronic gaming companies are increasing due to rising consumption on social and casual gaming platforms.
Despite rising programming costs, satellite television companies show steady growth from cost controls and increasing revenue.
Advertisers still value the ability of television broadcast to reach large audiences despite the rise of competing platforms.
In 2012, global music revenues increased for the first time since 1999 due to the growth of licensed digital music services and paid digital downloads.
Newspaper and magazine companies continue to face challenging times from declining advertising and subscription revenues. However, business information services companies are reporting stable revenues and margins.
