Global box office revenue 2004-2019, by region

Global box office revenue amounted to 42.2 billion U.S. dollars in 2019. While revenue decreased in North America from 2018, with the exception of Latin Ameria all other markets saw an increase in revenue during the same period, particularly box offices in APAC countries. In the last decade, the Asia-Pacific region tripled its box office revenue and became a key player in the global film industry.

What is box office data used for?

The term box office revenue refers to the total revenue generated through movie ticket sales. It is primarily used to measure and compare the commercial success of a film. Ticket sales generally account for a large portion of the film industry’s total revenue, while also being the main source of revenue for movie theaters.

Leading box office markets worldwide

North America has been the leading box office market worldwide for several decades, enjoying praise for its Hollywood blockbusters around the globe. China, alongside many other Asian markets, has also begun to make its mark on the global movie industry in recent years. Bollywood movies in particular are gaining popularity outside of India, but while India’s film industry is releasing far more movies than China and the United States combined, its box office revenues are comparatively small.
