In 2024, the streaming sector might see financial stability.

Within the next 18 months, according to research firm Ampere Analysis, the streaming market will begin turning a profit on a regular basis. According to the company’s latest estimates, which The Wrap first revealed, studios should profit between $1 billion and $2 billion annually by 2028 (before interest and taxes).

This follows a few years in which streaming providers have battled to remain afloat. Platforms have had to deal with changes in subscriber numbers, competition from other services, strikes by Hollywood writers and performers, growing production costs, and inflation, all of which have had a significant negative impact on the bottom line of most, if not all, streaming companies.

Consequently, streamers have had to make difficult and perhaps unpleasant choices in order to right their own ships. Disney, for instance, might turn a profit as early as the first quarter of 2024, according to Ampere. The business projected that it would turn a profit by September 2024.

The media behemoth’s return to financial stability is probably a result of the aggressive measures it took this year, which included price increases, budget cuts, layoffs, password cracking, and the combination of Disney+ with Hulu.

Warner Bros. Discovery is expected to turn a profit by the third quarter of 2024, after Disney, according to Ampere. Paramount+ and NBCUniversal’s Peacock will follow in the first quarter of 2025.

Ampere continued by saying that accepting advertising might boost revenue and expansion much further. This might result in more people using free, ad-supported streaming, which is becoming more and more common as people search for ways to cut costs.

All we can do is wait and see how the forecasts made by Ampere Analysis turn out in 2024 and beyond.
