Snippets from the Influencers in the Indian M&E Sector (Source: FICCI & EY M&E Report 2020)
  • "The advances in technology are blurring global borders for entertainment. And enabling India's media and entertainment industry to be one of the pivots that could help achieve India's goal of becoming a $5 trillion economy"
    -Priyanka Chopra Jonas
  • "This trend for growth in demand for Indian content is only going to rise further. It is now time for India to play a larger role in the global media and entertainment."
    -Karan Johar
  • "So exciting is the proposition of digital entertainment, that industry players now include not only traditional and new-age media companies, but also platforms which were previously focused on other services. While the country’s economic growth has been lukewarm, the M&E industry has grown at nine percent last year. Amidst concerns of a slowdown in consumption, the number of digital consumers tripled last year. Digital media, online gaming, and animation are likely to clock impressive double-digit growth in the near future."
    -Uday Shankar (Sr. Vice-President, FICCI)
  • "While the economy felt the effects of a slowdown during the second half of 2019, the M&E sector continued to grow at a faster pace than India’s GDP, driven primarily by growth in subscription revenues."
    -Ashish Pherwani (M&E Sector Leader, EY India)
