Top 10 DVD Chart 2011

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows topped the DVD sales chart for 2011, but overall DVD sales dropped 7.2% in the UK last year. Total DVD units sold in 2011 were 207m, continuing the decline from 253m total sales in 2008.

As physical DVD sales continue to drop, it is downloads and online streaming that are propping up the entertainment industry, but this was not enough to stop a 3.4% year on year drop (includes all digital and physical retail sales, plus physical rental transactions, consumers spent an estimated total of £2.25b).

It was a good year for British films, with eight out of the top ten films for 2011 earning a place in the end of year chart. The year to come is expected to see physical DVD sales continue in their free fall, while at the same time customers move online to more subscription download content. This will increase the pressure on retailers like HMV, as previously discussed HERE.
