Sports Industry To Reach $73.5 Billion By 2019
by Darren Heitner , Contributor, Forbes Magazine
Sports media rights are projected to go from $14.6 billion in 2014 to $20.6 billion by 2019
The sports market in North America was worth $60.5 billion in 2014. It is expected to reach $73.5 billion by 2019. The biggest reason for such growth is projected increases in revenue derived from media rights deals, which is predicted to surpass gate revenues as the sports industry's largest segment.
Sports media rights are projected to go from $14.6 billion in 2014 to $20.6 billion by 2019 , accounting for a compound annual rate increase of 7.2%. Over 35% of current local television rights deals with the National Basketball Association, National Hockey League and Major League Baseball are set to expire by 2019, which will contribute to the overall growth in the sector based on assumed lucrative new deals, but national rights deals truly drive the growth in this area.
"[T]he segment should continue to recognize higher than indexed growth of existing rights deals through the end of the period as rights owners continue to carve out or reserve in-demand digital assets and further monetize this inventory under new deals or through in-house ventures. Related initiatives involving a la carte and streaming media are allowing consumers to purchase specific content (i.e. media rights for a single game or season package for a specific team), watch games in a condensed format shortly after completion, and watch replays on league platforms before they are available through general media," states a new sports industry report by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) titled, "At the Gate and Beyond," which provided the projections for this article.
