Overview of Media and Entertainment Industry in India

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 film industry, on the other hand, has seen a tremendous growth and has become a brand name in the recent years. This has helped it to enter the international market.

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.

About 100 to 120 persons are required to produce a movie. Keeping in mind the current employment, and the expected growth in different segments in the industry, we project that the total employment in the Media and Entertainment industry would increase from about 1 to 1.1 million persons in 2008 to about 4 to 4.1 million persons in 2022, which translates to an incremental human resource requirement of about 3 million persons. With ever increasing production of the films the demand of the Film Critics is on the rise as they have to match the increasing in the number of films produced. All these factors mean that there will be a huge demand for a Critic across towns and cities in India.
