Visual Effects (VFX) Market 2021-2025: Drivers and Challenges

The key factor driving the growth of the visual effects market is the growing demand for high quality content. The growing adoption of digital video content platforms such as Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, and Hulu has created the need for rich content and VFX of all kinds. Streaming service providers are also adopting the latest technologies such as virtual reality and 360-degree and light-field capture, which use VFX. The increase in movie production is also pushing production studios to adopt VFX in their movies and TV series. Movie studios are trying to incorporate more animations and visual effects-based shots into their movies and TV series.

However, the storage issues associated with VFX rendering will be a major challenge for the visual effects market during the forecast period. A major challenge in the whole process is managing the volume of information used to generate a photorealistic image, as a single photorealistic image contains hundreds or even thousands of digital assets. VFX studios that rely entirely on a file storage system are vulnerable to performance, scalability, adaptability, and visibility issues in the rendering process. Since most VFX studios are migrating to 4K and higher resolution images, the size of computer-generated images (output) is large, causing performance and efficiency issues in the rendering process.
