COVID-19 impact on The Global Animation and VFX Market

With the continued outbreak of coronavirus across the globe, companies within the industry are taking a toll on post-production activities because the pandemic has disrupted by halting the assembly stage. Companies like Base FX are searching for strategic partnerships for investments to survive within the turbulence. In January 2020, chief Chinese SunacCulture declared a strategic investment in Base FX by taking a majority stake. Base FX has mentioned that the assembly is down by over 70% against the previous year in China, and there'll be no films starting in China for a minimum of following six months.

Market growth and trends:

There are basically two trends driving the adoption of animation and VFX solutions. For the actual end-user industries, especially films, there's a general upward trend in production value or budgets. This is often primarily because of broader international distribution partially to digital theatres. Secondly, writers and directors are now more hospitable embracing scripts requiring VFX. Production companies hence increasingly pursuing more ambitious products which will only be fulfilled with the utilization of VFX and streamline platforms, have also broadened the genres of content being published.

The surge in 3D-UHD animated movies in theatres through the appliance of animation and VFX in TV, advertising and gaming alongside the expansion within the outsourcing of VFX process thanks to cost-effectiveness thereby that specialize in the kids-genre and therefore the growing popularity of streaming video are expected to fuel the market demand across the emerging economies.

The integration of latest OTT services across the prevailing subscription-based streaming devices among the emerging economies is predicted to drive the applications of the animation & VFX sector. The businesses are endlessly involved in announcing new services for animation and VFX dedicated to OTT contents. as an example, in May 2019, London-based DNEG has launched its new service offering called ReDefine. The service is aimed toward filling the gap between East and therefore the West for creative services for film and Over the top (OTT) content for streaming.

Nowadays, consumers are engaging in high-definition visual experiences. Movies fans are expecting high-quality productions with appealing visual effects and realistic animation and studios, which integrates more animation and VFX shots into films. Similarly, consumers are consuming more immersive content across channels like ultra-high-definition TVs, tablets, and smartphones to head-mounted devices. Animation, VFX, and games content is being used up not only on OTT streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and but also on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. With the growing internet penetration and access to multimedia devices, customers are spending longer streaming digital content, thanks to which streaming video has become the fastest-growing segment within the network for animation, thereby witnessing a high-growth and is predicted to continue.

Market Drivers and Restraints:

The demand for VFX, Animation and video gaming is growing with the rise in targeted broadcasting hours by cable and satellite television, accessibility of low-priced internet access, penetration of mobile devices together with the rising popularity of streaming video. Additionally, the demand for Animation and VFX content to power immersive experiences like Augmented Reality and computer game is increasing exponentially.

The advances in technology has made animation, VFX & games have brought them close to common people, and it is among the fastest-growing segments in the  media and entertainment industry. Production work is becoming global with countries also as regions providing tax incentives, subsidies, support, regional low labor costs etc. and corporations are reducing costs by fixing facilities in such regions.
