ZOO Digital has been named as the top organic growth leader in the global language services industry.
Market research company, Nimdzi identified over 170 companies for a recent research report, comparing the growth of localisation service providers around the world across all market segments.
The positive research results follow the launch of their cloud-based dubbing platform which has been well-received by existing and new clients – and brought them honours at last year's IBC Show .
In the report, Nimdzi published a two-year growth of 143% for ZOO. Chief researcher, Konstantin Dranch attributed this to an ‘explosive increase in volume’ along with the significant growth of digital distribution.
Nimdzi identified that the majority of accelerated growth within the wider localisation industry is fuelled by consolidation. However, ZOO is reported as the only localisation service provider to more than double its sales in the two-year period as a result of purely organic growth.
The report also estimates that the total worldwide localisation market could reach USD 66.5 billion by the end of 2022.
Working within the thriving dubbing sector meant it was vital to invest in our internal team and network of translators, voice talent and dubbing directors – and they're always looking out for fresh talent...
Stuart Green, CEO, ZOO Digital said: “It’s been a really exciting period at ZOO since launching our cloud dubbing service, and it’s fantastic that this report has placed us at the top of the industry in terms of organic growth.
"We’ve invested in our cloud technology and our team – and continue to bring in more freelance talent across different languages and countries.
“Media localization is growing rapidly right now, and is playing an important role in the localisation industry as a whole. In part, this is due to the launch of content into new territories and the expansion of digital distribution platforms, but it also stems from industry innovation and we’re proud that ZOO is playing its part in that.”
Konstantin Dranch added: “Media localisation is the hottest niche in the language services market. It benefits from an explosive increase in volume coming from a small number of OTT clients and makes about 9% of the global market, which we value at more than $50 billion a year.
“Outside media, the industry moves at a leisurely pace, CAGR stands at 7.4% overall and at 12% a year for the top-100 companies.”
