Overview of Media & Entertainment Sector in India

The Media and Entertainment industry is one of the fastest growing sectors in the country. The animation segment in India is in its early growth stage and is poised for growth in the future. The segment is currently a small contributor to the size of the Indian M&E sector and currently accounts for only about 3% of the size of the sector.

The entertainment animation section contributes to around 70% to the total animation industry. TV animation, the largest user of animation in India, is considered to be the most basic form of animation from which most of the companies start and evolve to other forms like VFX and fully animated movies.

Animation is a fairly recent concept in Indian cinema. Some of the Indian animated movie makers have collaborated with DreamWorks, Walt Disney, and Pixar Animation. Apart from pure 2D or 3D animated movies, application of animation in films is also increasing.

The current employment across Media & Entertainment sector is estimated to be over 1 million persons (in terms of direct employment only). The Private Final Consumption Expenditure (PFCE) on Entertainment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13% to 14% between 2008 and 2022. This means that in the future, there is going to be a continuous and increasing demand for this job role. All these factors put together are only going to increase the job opportunities for an Animator across towns and cities in India.
