India’s media and entertainment (M&E) industry continues to rack up impressive growth numbers that not only captures the imagination of billions of Indians, but also captivates global audiences. The M&E sector has entered an era of innovation and transformation as organisations seek to increase their relevance and appeal to both popular and more niche consumers. Traditional businesses – print, radio, broadcasting – are witnessing the greatest change with digital platform companies emerging as the primary disruptors. The biggest beneficiaries are the Indian consumers who have greater flexibility and choice in their M&E consumption and have finally found their place at the centre of the entire ecosystem.
Innovation and change have always been constants in the M&E industry. But today’s combination of new technologies and the current economic climate have elevated change to a new level, forcing companies to deal with the many implications of digital content transformation.
