201620152014 | 2013 | 2012 | 2011 | 2010


Next update March 2018

In the last seven years, the total number of DVD and Blu-ray titles sold in Australian retail outlets has fluctuated between 20,400 and 46,700. To glean insights from this activity, titles that account for the top 66 per cent of sales value have been analysed as a subset. In 2016, those titles accounted for just 6.0 per cent of all DVD titles and 4.8 per cent of all Blu-ray titles.

Of this subset, Australian titles accounted for 7.2 per cent of the value of DVD sales in 2016, and 2.2 per cent of Blu-ray sales value. These figures are down from a market share of 7.4 per cent for DVD and 4.2 per cent for Blu-ray in 2015.

TV drama was the top-earning program type for Australian DVD titles, which had an 7.4 per cent share of the category.

In 2016, the highest-selling Australian title in terms of value and units was The Dressmaker: see Top-selling titles.

Australian titles include Australian productions and productions with overseas partners where creative control is shared (i.e. with a mix of Australians in key creative positions).
Based on a non-extrapolated sample of Blu-ray sales from 86 per cent of Australian retailers: see About the data.

2. Refers to the number of individual and box set titles sold during each calendar year (first-release titles issued that year and continued sales of previously issued titles). This may include multiple editions and multiple formats of the same content.
3. Box sets may include Australian and foreign titles. Although these sets are counted as a single title for ranking purposes, their units and value are apportioned according to the origin of discrete titles in the collection.
4. TV drama comprises scripted productions including children’s programming. It does not include documentary and light entertainment TV shows.
5. Includes non-scripted children’s, music, stand-up comedy and sports titles. Also includes a small number of single-episode documentaries.
