Ernst & Young Study Shows That CEOs Believe New Technology-Enabled Offerings Will Provide Greatest Opportunities For Media And Entertainment Industry

Ernst & YoungWhile 74% of CEOs say tech-enabled offerings are the future of the media and entertainment industry, they agree emerging markets hold the key to unlocking that potential revenue and growth, Ernst & Young says in a new survey. Opportunity And Optimism: How CEOs Are Embracing Digital Growth (PDF) reveals media and entertainment companies from around the globe unanimously agree that catering their offerings to digital ecosystems, where consumers can interact with content across multiple connected devices, is essential for growth.

“With 3% to 8% projected growth in income and high mobile subscription rates in emerging economies, there is a great opportunity for growth in these markets, particularly where new technology and digital are concerned,” says Opportunity and optimism: how CEOs are embracing digital growth PDFMartin Lundie, Ernst & Young’s Canadian Media and Entertainment Leader. “But improving infrastructure — such as broadband and mobile networks — to handle the demand will be critical to realizing the opportunity.”

 

“In the race to adapt products and services to meet consumer needs, some companies realize that their operational capabilities still lag behind their ability to get these new products and services into the market. In particular, in building infrastructure and delivery capabilities to support new models, CEOs must respond to challenges such as creating new product and service bundles for which the consumer is willing to pay,” says Lundie.

In fact, 69% of CEOs surveyed say getting the consumer to pay a fair price is a challenge. Meanwhile, 53% report their companies struggle to determine where to house their intellectual property and how to manage it. And, 47% report that optimizing the supply chain to realize better margins is a challenge for their company.

Lundie adds, “The infrastructure challenges are real, but not insurmountable. By finding innovative ways to overcome these challenges, media and entertainment companies will be better positioned to take advantage of digital revenue and growth opportunities.”
