Industry Outlook

The coronavirus pandemic, which started in late 2019, has affected numerous industries, for good or bad, around the world. The Internet content industry was among the few industries that experienced some growth during the pandemic in 2020. The research group IBISWorld estimated that the Internet publishing and broadcasting industry in the U.S. would have 10.3 percent growth in revenue in 2020 alone, and that industry enterprises were expected to grow by nearly 9 percent also in 2020. Business lockdowns and remote work and learning increased the demand for access to the Internet and Internet-connected devices. The distribution of the vaccine for the virus had accelerated in 2021, but many people will continue teleworking and other remote activities that require Internet content. The U.S. publishing and broadcasting industry will have steady growth in revenue through 2025, due to an increase in the number of Internet connections, an increase in the time that people spend on the Internet, and migration of advertising dollars over to the Internet.
