The Media and Entertainment industry is one of the fastest growing sectors in the country. The television segment in India accounts for over 40% of the revenues. It also contributes to above 35% of the revenues to the Indian advertising industry. The Print segment in India, with a readership base of over 250 million, is estimated to be the second largest print market in the world.
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.

According to MESC-Skills Gap Study, the estimated employment in the print industry in editing roles till 2017 is around 74,900 people.
