Industry outlook


Online entertainment is a fast-growing industry in China. According to iResearch's report, China's online entertainment industry reached 205.8 billion yuan in 2016, and is expected to reach 752.7 billion yuan by 2021, with an annual CAGR of 29.6%.


In particular, we need to point out that "generation Z", a generation born in China between 1990 and 2009, is redefining the online entertainment industry, because this group grows up in a unique social environment, especially considering the following aspects: 1) consumption upgrading to meet cultural needs; 2) deep popularization of the Internet in daily life; 3) strong demand for self-expression. According to Ariel's report, the total population of generation Z in 2016 reached 328 million. In terms of consumption, their contribution to China's online entertainment industry accounted for 45.8% in 2014, 54.8% in 2017 and 62.1% in 2020.


Traditional media can not meet the continuous development of entertainment needs because it provides limited content in a single "one-way" way. Therefore, online entertainment, diversified content and interactive functions driven by mobile Internet and technology have become mainstream media forms. High quality content attracts and retains users, which in turn drives content providers to produce more engaging content.


This virtuous circle promotes the healthy development of online entertainment industry. A large number of "generation Z" users actively participate in the production and promotion of content, rather than just passive content viewing and consumption. By the end of 2016, there were 636 million online entertainment consumers in China, who spent an average of 1.4 hours a day on online entertainment, according to iResearch. Among them, 282 million people belong to generation Z, and spend more than 1.6 hours on online entertainment every day.


The rapid development of China's online entertainment industry meets the needs of "generation Z" for high-quality content. They cover a wide range of topics, including animation and animation, games, music, fashion, lifestyle, technology, film and TV series. With the growing demand for a variety of entertainment content, key areas of the online entertainment industry, including video, games and live broadcast, are growing exponentially.
