Analyst Opinion

This is reflected in the box office performance, with a mix of domestic and foreign films dominating the market. Chileans have a diverse taste in movies, enjoying a wide range of genres including comedy, drama, action, and animation. The demand for high-quality cinematic experiences has also led to an increase in the popularity of premium formats such as IMAX and 3D.

Trends in the market:
One major trend in the Chilean Box Office market is the increasing popularity of local films. Chilean filmmakers have gained international recognition for their unique storytelling and artistic approach. This has resulted in a growing interest among local audiences to support and watch homegrown films. The success of local films has also been fueled by government initiatives to promote the local film industry and provide funding for productions. Another trend in the market is the rise of digital streaming platforms. The availability of online streaming services has provided consumers with more options to watch movies from the comfort of their own homes. However, despite the convenience of streaming, the allure of the cinema experience remains strong in Chile. The social aspect of going to the movies, along with the immersive big screen experience, continues to attract audiences to theaters.

The country's long coastline and diverse landscapes provide filmmakers with a variety of locations to shoot their films, attracting both local and international productions. Additionally, Chilean cinema benefits from a strong network of film festivals and events that showcase and promote local talent.

As disposable incomes increase, more people have the means to spend on entertainment, including going to the movies. The country's strong cinema infrastructure, with a large number of modern multiplexes in major cities, has also contributed to the growth of the market. In conclusion, the Box Office market in Chile is experiencing growth due to customer preferences for a diverse range of films, the increasing popularity of local productions, the appeal of the cinema experience, local special circumstances such as the availability of unique shooting locations and a strong network of film festivals, and underlying macroeconomic factors such as a stable economy and a growing middle class.

Modeling approach / market size:

The market size is determined through a bottom-up approach.

To estimate the market size for each country individually, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific industry associations, such as various macroeconomic indicators, historical developments, current trends, and reported performance indicators of key market players. In particular, we consider average prices and annual purchase frequencies.


We apply a variety of forecasting techniques, depending on the behavior of the relevant market. For instance, the S-curve function and exponential trend smoothing are well suited for forecasting digital products and services due to the non-linear growth of technology adoption. The main drivers are GDP per capita, consumer spending per capita, and 4G coverage.
