Media consumption in India is growing much faster than US and China creating up to a trillion interactions with consumers per annum. However, it's only getting started - there is still ample head room to grow as penetration and device proliferation increases. These trends will fundamentally change the way media houses of the future will look, along multiple axis, including the content produced, relationships with advertisers and technology backbone and talent that drive the organization. In this report we deep dive into the trends impacting this industry and what media houses, industry bodies and government need to do adjust to this evolving reality.
Entertainment Goes Online - A $5 Billion Opportunity
The past decade has seen a global transformation in how consumers watch videos and listen to music. From the days of terrestrial broadcast, social viewing of television to highly personalised, small screen consumption - the media industry is witnessing a transformation like no other. The rate of change in the industry only continues to accelerate, with hyper-competitive dynamics coming into play in India.

Generating assets are increasingly faced with margin pressures owing to raw material volatility (for thermal assets) and increased competition (for renewables).
Digital Lending: A $1 Trillion Opportunity Over the Next 5 Years
While ‘digital lending’ has been a buzz phrase in recent times, it has no universally articulated (and understood) definition. Due to this, the ‘size of prize’ has not been clearly stated, at least in the public domain. This report aims to (among other objectives) define the phrase in the simplest possible manner and size the current as well as future (potential) market objectively. In order to do this, we have applied the only lens which ultimately matters: that of the consumer.
