The UK Film Industry - Statistics & Facts

The United Kingdom ranks among the leading film-producing markets in the world, having produced 200 feature films in 2016 alone. Though the scale of filmmaking in the United Kingdom does not rival that of Hollywood in the U.S. or Bollywood in India, filmed entertainment is a key cultural export of the UK. The James Bond and Harry Potter film franchises, both joint UK/U.S. products, rank among the most successful of all time. Worldwide, UK films generated 16.4 percent of global box office revenue in 2016, or roughly 6.5 billion U.S. dollars in ticket sales.


Film industry revenue in the United Kingdom has remained steady in recent years. Revenues from feature film on TV, film on video-on-demand, and theatrical film exhibition sectors have grown to replace the revenues lost from the physical film retail and physical film rental markets. In 2015, domestic box office revenue grew for the first time since 2012, from 1.06 billion British pounds in 2014 to 1.24 billion British pounds in 2015. Meanwhile, cinema admissions remained roughly stable, with 168 million admissions in 2016 in the United Kingdom.
