Global box office revenue dropped for the first time in the past ten years, although marginally, by 1.8% to $37.8 billion in 2016. The number would have been higher, and therefore box office would have been up, had it not been for exchange rate fluctuations between US dollar and South American countries and (to a lesser extent) between the Rouble and the Euro.

Highlights:

  • Global box office revenue dropped for the first time in the past ten years
  • Exchange rate is still affecting many countries
  • The international market accounts for 70.3% of global box office
  • Cinema attendance rose healthily by 1%, to reach 7.6 billion in 2016
  • Cinema screens had a strong 8% growth
  • South Korea, Iceland, Singapore, Australia and USA lead the way in terms of cinema going
  • The cinema industry in China experienced an unexpected deceleration with only 3.6% growth in 2016
