LONDON—Disney has firmly established itself as the leading media company in the world, with the numbers to back it up. According to TradingPlatforms.com, Disney now has more than $200 billion in total assets, more than four times the amount of the next largest media company.
In 2020, Disney recorded assets of nearly $201 billion, the first time that it has crossed the $200 billion mark. Disney’s assets include its animation studio, live-action film and TV production, theme parks and, most recently, its streaming services.
While Disney was already the leading media company prior to the launch of Disney+, the addition of the streaming service has been key in Disney reaching its latest heights. Disney+ recently hit 100 million global subscribers, four years ahead of its initial expected pace.
In 2019, when Disney+ launched, the company saw its total assets grow 97% year-over-year, from $98.6 billion to $193.98 billion. From 2016-2020, Disney saw a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17%.
The closest media company to Disney is Vivendi, which has about $42 billion in total assets. Netflix, while topping Disney+ in subscribers, is far behind in total assets at $27 billion.
Compared to the largest companies in the world, Disney ranks 15th on the S&P 500, as of February 2021, with an estimated market cap of $320 billion.
