Media, Entertainment and Leisure

The Indian media and entertainment (M&E) industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the country. Its various segments viz. film, television, advertising, prints media and music among others have witnessed tremendous growth in the last few years.


The media and entertainment industry in India is likely to grow by 13% p.a. over the next five years and touch US$ 24.04 billion by 2014. With a majority of the population below the age of 35 and increasing disposable income in the Indian households, the average spend on media and entertainment industry is likely to substantially grow in India.


With the growing popularity of Indian content in the world market in general and South Asia in particular, the Indian entertainment industry players are venturing abroad to tap this booming segment. Consequently, many Indian domestic players have set up distribution arms overseas and entered into joint ventures with leading international media & entertainment conglomerates. Apart from films, other entertainment content areas like music and television also have a huge potential international market. One of the recent estimates puts the total value of Indian content sold overseas at over US$ 200 million. Further, this number is expected to grow by over 20% every year.


The ever expanding innovations and the entry of new mediums pose lots of opportunities and challenges for the industry. Further, corporatisation, rapid technological developments have now partnered with the creative and artistic minds to add to bring about disciplined approach and professionalism in this industry. In addition, the ever-changing and new laws and regulations are playing a vital role in protecting and safeguarding interests of this industry.


Leisure is currently one of the most exciting sectors in India. Though developing fast, the industry is still at an early stage of development. The current size of the consumer market for the leisure and amusement sector is estimated at 25 - 30 million. With a population of 1 billion, 30% of which is under 20 and economic growth set to continue at 6% per annum, the number of consumers can only increase.


The sector is developing throughout India but the major projects are planned in the metropolitan cities, their suburbs and other major cities in Western and Northern India.
