2020 looks like a promising year for the media and entertainment industry as new technologies and trends continue to drive innovation and unravel new opportunities. Technology is a crucial element of the industry, and the rapidly growing digital transformation trends have further increased its relevance. Today, the industry is witnessing an increase in video advertisements, demand for digital experience, and a rise in mobile data usage due to high demand, among others. Interestingly, these trends are expected to continue this year.

However, it is also expected that companies in the media and entertainment industry will focus more on operationalizing current technology better and prepare their organizations to handle the next wave of technology, such as 5G, Mobile AR/VR, and conversational AI while being more profitable and connected with their consumers. Going by recent trends, virtual reality (VR), over-the-top (OTT) video, and internet advertising are among the fastest-growing revenue generators for media and entertainment companies.

Additionally, as the demand for mobile data progresses, the industry will rapidly make a turn towards AI and machine learning to enrich their content and improve user engagement.

Giants like Google, Amazon, and Netflix are already leveraging the power of AI to attract the audience, and thereby, ruling the media and entertainment space with their data-driven business models.
