The graph shows box office revenues in various world regions from 2004 to 2016. In 2016, cinemas in Latin America generated 2.8 billion US dollars from ticket sales. Growth in global box office revenue is expected to continue at least until 2020, when revenue is forecast to reach 49.3 billion. The US market is also projected to experience an undisturbed growth period, reaching 11 billion in 2020, up from 9.9 billion in 2016. This amount made the United States the largest box office market in the world, leaving other wealthy and/or populous countries far behind. In China – the second largest market – ticket sales brought 6.6 billion U.S. dollars revenue, in Japan 2 billion and in India – the country which produces by far the most movies annually - 1.9 billion.
In 2015, the studio which released the most amount of movies worldwide was Lionsgate, who released 28 feature films during that year. Other leading movies studios in 2015 included Warner Bros., Weinstein Company, and Universal.
