India’s Entertainment Industry on a Meteoric Rise, Set to Soar at 9.48% and Cross $73.6 Billion by 2027. According to a recent report, India’s entertainment and media sector is projected to witness significant growth, reaching Rs 6,828,944 crore ($73.6 billion) by the year 2027. This expansion is primarily attributed to the rise of over-the-top (OTT) platforms, and the industry is anticipated to maintain a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9.48 percent. The findings of the report were unveiled on Tuesday.

As per PwC’s ‘Global Entertainment and Media Outlook 2023-2027,’ the revenue generated by over-the-top (OTT) platforms has experienced significant growth in recent times. This surge in India’s Entertainment Industry can be attributed to the introduction of new services by international players and the rising popularity of “pay-lite” payment options. In 2022 alone, the OTT revenue expanded by 25.1 percent, reaching an impressive Rs 1,48,554 crore ($1.8 billion).

While subscription service revenue is projected to experience a commendable Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13 percent, resulting in a total of Rs 2,14,578 crore ($2.6 billion), advertising-supported services (AVOD) are expected to grow at a higher rate, albeit starting from a relatively lower base.

According to Manpreet Singh Ahuja, Chief Digital Officer and Leader – Technology, Media, and Telecom at PwC India, the increasing adoption of emerging technologies such as AI/ML and the metaverse will lead to the expansion of various use cases, inevitably causing disruptions in the media industry.
