Over your lifetime, the consumption of media and entertainment has already changed drastically.

For Boomers and Gen Xers, the shift has been earth-shattering. Both generations will remember a time before mainstream computing when TV was dominated by the Big Three TV networks (NBC, ABC, and CBS), and newspapers and magazines were the main way to stay in touch with what was happening.

Even millennials have seen fundamental shifts in consumption of media. After all, they experienced the rise of social media, online news, streaming, and digital video firsthand. Many of them will remember their college getting access to Facebook for the first time, the death of Napster, and the funny sounds their 28.8k modem made as it struggled to successfully download a single image file.

The modern landscape of media is very different than it was back then – and the coming years will see even more prolific changes.

The Future of Media and Entertainment

Today’s infographic comes to us from Raconteur, and it showcases multiple sets of data that help to illustrate the direction that media is heading. This includes the growth rates of various media and entertainment sectors, TV viewing trends, and social media use.

Here are some of the key trends that we found to be compelling:

Annualized Media Sector Growth (Minus GDP Growth) from 2016-2021

Media sectorAnnual Growth (minus GDP growth)
Online Video6.0%
Online Advertising4.3%
Video Gaming2.7%
Out-of home Ads-1.7%
Music-2.0%
TV Advertising-2.8%
Radio-3.4%
Books-4.5%
Magazines-6.0%
Newspapers-8.3%

Online video (6.0%), online ads (4.3%), and video gaming (2.7%) are the only sectors growing at a rate faster than GDP growth.

But while digital video use is growing, it’s not going to takeover TV anytime soon:

Daily Minutes Watching TV vs. Digital Video

YearTV (Minutes watched)Digital Video (Minutes Watched)
201624549.5
201723854.3
201823058.7
201922262.5
202021965.3

Lastly, here are some figures on the future of media and entertainment that are particularly interesting:

  • By 2021, Cisco says that 82% of all internet traffic will stem from digital video
  • There will be 26.3 million VR headsets shipped in 2022, up from 100,000 in 2016
  • The eSports market will jump 152% in size by 2021
  • By 2021, there will be 650 million subscribers to services like Amazon Prime or Netflix
  • 5G latency is expected to be 0.001 seconds, which is 15-60x faster than 4G

It’s fair to say that in another decade, media and entertainment will be much less recognizable than what it looks like today.

Did you know that some computer chips are now retailing for the price of a new BMW?

As computers invade nearly every sphere of life, so too have the chips that power them, raising the revenues of the businesses dedicated to designing them.

But how did various chipmakers measure against each other last year?

We rank the biggest semiconductor companies by their percentage share of the industry’s revenues in 2023, using data from Omdia research.

Which Chip Company Made the Most Money in 2023?

Market leader and industry-defining veteran Intel still holds the crown for the most revenue in the sector, crossing $50 billion in 2023, or 10% of the broader industry’s topline.

All is not well at Intel, however, with the company’s stock price down over 20% year-to-date after it revealed billion-dollar losses in its foundry business.

Meanwhile, Nvidia is very close to overtaking Intel, after declaring $49 billion of topline revenue for 2023. This is more than double its 2022 revenue ($21 billion), increasing its share of industry revenues to 9%.

Nvidia’s meteoric rise has gotten a huge thumbs-up from investors. It became a trillion dollar stock last year, and broke the single-day gain record for market capitalization this year.

Other chipmakers haven’t been as successful. Out of the top 20 semiconductor companies by revenue, 12 did not match their 2022 revenues, including big names like Intel, Samsung, and AMD.

The Many Different Types of Chipmakers

All of these companies may belong to the same industry, but they don’t focus on the same niche.

According to Investopedia, there are four major types of chips, depending on their functionality: microprocessors, memory chips, standard chips, and complex systems on a chip.

Nvidia’s core business was once GPUs for computers (graphics processing units), but in recent years this has drastically shifted towards microprocessors for analytics and AI.

These specialized chips seem to be where the majority of growth is occurring within the sector. For example, companies that are largely in the memory segment—Samsung, SK Hynix, and Micron Technology—saw peak revenues in the mid-2010s.
