Overview of the Indian Musical Instrument Industry

Indian culture has been emotionally involved with music since a long time, with Indian classic music being the most famous among Indians till the time globalization took place in the country. Due to the adoptive nature of Indian consumers, western culture followers have been continuously increasing in India over the years. Initially, the focus of Indian manufacturers was limited only to Indian musical instruments but the rising demand for western musical instruments has generated a huge potential for growth in the future. Domestic manufacturers have started manufacturing western musical instruments which are in massive demand.

According to ?India Western Musical Instruments Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2017?, the Indian western musical instruments market has been anticipated to reach 542.84 crores by 2017. Increasing western music lovers, disposable income of Indian consumers, availability of western music instruments, digitalization of the instruments and decreasing cost of instruments are the major factors which are driving this industry upwards.
