Report: Anime Industry Up 12% in 2015

posted on by Karen Ressler
Industry market value estimated at 1.83 trillion yen

The Association of Japanese Animations (AJA) published its "Anime Industry Report 2016," which examines industry trends from 2015, on Friday.

According to the report, the total market value of the anime industry in 2015 was 1.83 trillion yen (about US$18.1 billion), up about 12% from 2014's 1.63 trillion yen. This continues the industry's upward trend; the total market value in 2014 was up 10% from 2013.

Last year, the AJA attributed part of the industry's success to the sale of streaming rights in China, and in 2013 the report noted an increase in anime-related events and exhibits. This year, the AJA reported a 78.7% rise in the sale of streaming rights in China and a 68.2% growth in the live events field.

The AJA has been publishing annual reports since 2009, when the anime industry was in decline.
