Trends driving the Media & Entertainment Industry
The Entertainment & Media industry in India is expected to reach US$ 100 billion by 2030. India is all set to emerge as the next hub of content. There are major transformations driving growth in this sector with favorable government policies and the sheer market size catapulting Indian broadcast, entertainment and infotainment sector to new heights.
The phenomenal surge in OTT platforms and streaming has seen Broadcast & Media companies connecting directly with their audiences through new platforms or digital media. Transition to remote working models is another major facet of this new trend.
In the content creation and production segment overall there has been a surge in sales on production side, remote editing, remote workflow solutions, IP technology and graphics systems. Traditional Pay-Tv and advertising-based business models have been hit hard – especially so in relation to cancelled live sports programming. The Pay-Tv market in India remains vibrant, with India and China together accounting for nearly half of the world’s Pay-Tv subscribers by 2024, with sports being a key driver.
The increased usage of 3G and 4G services along with influx of new content creation methods are some other factors expected to drive the growth of India broadcasting and cable TV market by FY2026.48% of India’s internet users (~650 million by 2023) are expected to be from rural areas. With development of regional content by various players, the rural market is poised to become a significantly large opportunity for players.
“Our idea of presenting A.B.I.S. as a single platform to integrate complimentary sectors within the broadcast, cable, satellite, content, broadband, media and infotainment will surely benefit the industry at large.” said Sonia Prashar, Chairperson of the Management Board & Managing Director, NürnbergMesse India Pvt Ltd. “We offer you the best platform to network, learn and grow. Witness the latest innovations and trends that the industry has in store and explore the potential of the Indian market.”
