The reason behind ousting celluloid films are mulch-folded. Film reels are more costly than digital storage. Celluloid reels also degrade faster. Film reels are much heavier to ship and carry around.

The amount of celluloid film has usage has dropped in the last couple of years. In 2012, 8 billion feet of film was screened by distributors where in 2010, it was 13 billion feet of film. Among 2-year period, film usage went down to about 5 billion feet of film.
