Dan Cryan, senior director of digital media at IHS Technology, said. According to IHS Technology research, digital purchases are set to grow by 75 percent between 2013 and 2017. In terms of worldwide consumer revenue, IHS forecasts that digital movie purchases will reach the two billion dollar mark by 2018. ?We are seeing major services looking to tap into the global market for growth,? Cryan said. ?Google Play movies are now available in Central Asia and Korea and iTunes is extending its reach into Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Oman, South Africa and Mozambique.?
