Number of 3D cinema screens worldwide from 2006 to 2017

Number of 3D cinema screens worldwide 2006-2017 This statistic shows the number of 3D cinema screens worldwide from 2006 to 2017. In 2007, there were 1,297 3D cinema screens worldwide. Ten years later, in 2017, the figure almost reached 100 thousand.
3D cinema – additional information

Between 2006 and 2017, the number of 3D cinema screens experienced a rapid growth, as well as there being an increase in the number of overall movie screens worldwide. Around the world, the Asia Pacific region is best equipped in 3D cinema technology, hosting over 58 thousand of such screens, followed by the EMEA and North American regions which respectively house 18.97 and 16.98 thousand three-dimensional screens. Latin America lags behind with 5.43 thousand such screens.

In 2012, an interesting phenomenon could be noticed across the North American market. The number of 3D screens grew by 7.6 percent on 2011 – from 13.7 thousand to 14.73 thousand. Yet the number of 3D movies released in that market shrank by 11 percent from 45 in 2011 to 40 in 2012. However, this figure began to pick up in recent years and, in 2016, a total of 52 3D films were released in North America, marking the highest output to-date. This figure fell again to 44 releases in 2017.
