Net income of the Walt Disney Company 2006-2018

How much does Disney make a year?

Disney’s net income in 2018 was 12.6 billion U.S. dollars, marking the highest figure to date. In the same year, the company announced record revenue of 59.43 billion U.S. dollars. The majority of this revenue – approximately 45 billion U.S. dollars – was generated in the United States and Canada. A further seven billion dollars came from Europe, however Disney has the majority of its power and influence in North America, where the company is growing bigger and bigger each year. The largest operating segment of the company was the media networks segment, which contributed revenue of 24.5 billion U.S. dollars in 2018.
Disney’s growing dominance

After a wave of acquisitions in recent years and its plans to launch its own streaming service Disney+ to rival Netflix, Disney’s growth seems almost unstoppable. The company holds stakes in ESPN, acquired 21st Century Fox in 2019 (ten years after its acquisition of Marvel Entertainment) and also took on LucasFilm Ltd. In 2012 for a figure in excess of four billion U.S. dollars.
Opinions on Disney’s expansion are mixed, with diehard Hollywood fans expressing concern that the company’s constant growth and the conglomeration of individual studios will deeply affect content and change the structure of Hollywood. Indeed, this has already happened to an extent, but with so many companies under one umbrella (that is, Disney), it will be curious to see whether the movie industry in particular will change as Disney’s stronghold over the industry increases.
