- See table of contents for full listing

Many media companies have bought this complete report from East West Information Services to help with market entry strategy and due diligence in the Indian media market.

Executive Summary

a) The macro-economic outlook

India is the world's second most populous country with a little over 1.2 billion people and is already ranked 3rd in terms of its PPP ranking, representing around 2.98% of world GDP in 2012. By 2030, India will almost certainly be the world's third largest economy in absolute terms, also. (By 2050, some would predict that it will be the largest).

But this is a market which has remained largely closed to foreign media companies until relatively recently when, in 1991, the cumulative impact of past policies and changing world economic trends meant that India faced a severe foreign exchange crisis. The government moved then to remove some of the regulations governing investment, including many although not all restrictions on foreign investment. This trend has continued, with planned changes to restrictions within the retail sector among the latest developments. The pace of foreign investment is now accelerating.

Despite the recent slowdown in the Indian economy, we are convinced that the fundamentals remain strong and that the country will return to significant growth.

India is not immune to the economic difficulties in the west, although given its growing domestic consumption, it is perhaps more resilient than other nations. The government has to some extent engineered the slowdown to combat inflation and that is showing success and can soon be relaxed. The government has also been criticised for a lack of decisiveness and it is true that there appears to be a power-vacuum at present, which will probably not be solved until after the next general election (due in 2014, but possibly even sooner). Thankfully, India has always been a nation of entrepreneurs and they will continue to drive India's growth, in spite of government bureaucracy and indecision. (If China's growth is 'planned and top-down', India's will inevitably remain more bottom-up.)

In terms of the fundamentals….bear in mind that whilst the populations of the west are increasingly ageing and mostly suffer from excessive debt and unaffordable long-term commitments, India has a population of 550 million people under the age of 25, education levels are rising rapidly, a high proportion of young Indian are highly tech- savvy and personal and government debt are low.

People and Demographics – Growing Middle Class

The Government of India defines the middle class as the mid socioeconomic class (SEC C). The National Council for Applied Economic Research (NCAER) defines the Indian middle class as those whose annual household income falls in the income group of $4,000-$21,000. It comprises people who are employed at clerical or supervisory levels, skilled workers, petty traders or shop owners. The purchasing power of the middle class is increasing rapidly, with considerable potential to grow further still. Armed with increased disposable income, their spending on various products has also increased, most rapidly, as you would expect, on discretionary items

Mobile phone handsets provide a good example. The highest percentage of mobile ownership is among the Indian middle class; according to TGI India, 42% of all mobile phone owners in the country are in this socio-demographic group, representing more than 330 million consumers. Mobile will transform the fortunes of many industries in India, including, of course, the media and entertainment industry.

Real household disposable income has more than doubled since 1985. In the next decade, the middle class will be the dominant section of the Indian population

The change in consumption from necessities to discretionary items mirrors the pattern of developed economies, but at an accelerated pace. Commodities such as cars and air-conditioners, which were in the past considered luxury items, are now considered 'necessities'. In fact, small car ownership in India has grown at a compound annual growth rate of 12.7 percent for the period 2004-05 to 2010-11.

Other industries have also followed the history of western economies. For instance, in the case of apparels the tradition of buying tailored shirts has been replaced by a rising demand for ready-made shirts. The movement from disorganized to organized industrial models is transforming every part of society, from branding and advertising, to supply chains.

Impact of the rising middle class on economic growth

The rise in per capita income of the growing middle class will further propel urbanization.
According to McKinsey & Company, in 2005, around 53 percent of the consumption was in the rural area but by 2025, 62 percent of the consumption will be in the urban area. This will lead to development of the smaller cities, which are now growing at a very fast pace. These cities will host a large number of the middle class and by 2025 around two-thirds of the Indian middle class will be outside the big metro cities like Delhi and Mumbai.

The use of financial services by the middle class is likely to give a push to the growing trends of retail banking and credit card usage. The middle class will also demand better healthcare and education services with a willingness to pay, creating opportunities for the commercial sector

Their discretionary expenditure on recreation activities, leisure travel, and entertainment and luxury items will increase. As income increases, the middle class will not only diversify their consumption baskets, but will demand better quality of and innovation in the products they purchase.

b) The Media Economy

The Indian E&M industry, with revenues of about USD 17.2 billion in 2011, is set to grow robustly over the next few years on the back of steady macro-economic growth, rising spending power and positive demographic indicators. The industry revenues are expected to reach USD 37.6 billion by 2016, with a CAGR of about 17% from 2012 to 2016.

Currently, India is only the 14th largest E&M market in the world with industry revenues contributing about 1% of its GDP.

Indians between the age group of 18-26 are more tech savvy and spend more time on the internet than any other media, as well as being the highest consumers of media, in general

We are confident that the media economy will remain in high growth, beyond the overall economy. There are two main drivers: Growing literacy and slightly improved affluence in the rural areas and smaller cities, above subsistence levels, mean that the market for newspapers and regional language media continues to be robust and will show growth for many years. Simultaneously, among India's middle class, digitisation in TV, an increase in the number of FM licenses in radio, and the growth of smart phones and broadband connectivity, all mean that the media revolution experienced in the west during the past few decades is now being experienced in India, too, but within a compressed timescale.

The fundamental social change affecting all consumer media is the focus on self-improvement, which will last for at least a generation from now. Simultaneously, growth in income levels is driving expenditure on homes, travel, cars and other needs beyond the most basic and increase in leisure time is driving interest in hobbies and other interests beyond the work-related.

The change affecting B2B media is the transformation of India's business structures, from fragmented to organized.
We believe that there are two big questions concerning India's media development, of importance to the higher SEC groups and of principle concern to international investors:
- What impact will digital transition have on TV economics….both the transition of cable to digital set-top boxes and the growth of DTH?
- At what pace can the roll-out of smart phones be anticipated, with either wi-fi connectivity, or 3G/4G subscriptions?

We believe that the answer to both is that over the period of the next decade, these drivers will utterly transform the media sector in India. Neither impact will be instantaneous or follow a straight line. But the correct attitude to the market at this point is to become sufficiently engaged to understand the market and the changes taking place.

Potential Game Changers

Advertising Spends: Television and print dominate the advertising segment in India, with over 80% share of revenue. Digital advertising spend will now rapidly accelerate in absolute terms and proportionately.

Advertising Spends for Television: Television advertising will also increase at pace.The television audience in the country has been on a high growth path, enabling advertisers to reach out to a larger segment of the Indian population. As a result, advertising budget allocation has slowly shifted its focus from other advertising media to this platform. Limited data about the specialist audiences different channels provide has held the medium back from its full potential and will be corrected.

Consumer Spends: Consumers will remain reluctant to pay high prices for content – a strongly ingrained cultural phenomenon. However, rising disposable incomes will lead to some growth in expenditure on TV and mobile subscriptions. There will also be an increasing willingness among the affluent to spend on media perceived as luxury items, such as glossy magazines.

Increasing penetration of Cable and satellite television: While the existing penetration of cable and satellite television is around 83% of television households, there exists a sizeable disparity between different states. For example, locations such as Mumbai, Delhi, and Bangalore have cable & satellite television reaching more than 90% of total television households, while states like Orissa and Assam have a relatively lower penetration, with a potential for significant growth. This, coupled with the rising popularity of multi-television households indicates that a penetration potential is even much higher.

Digitization of Media Delivery: The digitization of cable networks will help deliver high quality content to Indian viewers and also reduce the incidence of value leakage from the industry. Further, the number of channels delivered to consumers will increase substantially. Digitization will also help drive the uptake of HD channels and value-added- services such as pay-per-view (e.g., movies), encouraging higher consumer spend and delivering higher profitability to broadcasters.

Driving Internet penetration: Internet penetration in India is around 7%, but growing at a very fast pace in India. Infrastructural development in rural areas will help internet to reach to every part of India.

Mobile induced transformation: Increasing mobile and internet penetration is expected to positively impact digital media. Affordable broadband service combined with user comfort is likely to result in shift towards digital medium.

The need for quality information by business: The dramatic change to the structures of almost all industries within India, will make the B2B media sector one of the highest growth. The sharp rise in domestic consumption and the resultant pick up in manufacturing and services industry activity has attracted many overseas corporations to look at India for marketing, partnership and sourcing. B2B events and conferences have provided these players – both foreign and local – a platform to understand and evaluate the market opportunities and market participants better.

Regulatory and Policy Support: Significant policy initiatives such as the liberalizing of FDI have already been taken by the government to facilitate faster growth of E&M sector. Mandatory digitization is a key policy measure which is expected to improve the TV sector's profitability and aid growth in the long term. Lot needs to be done by the government in terms of bringing clarity in its regulatory policies. Policy makers' inordinate delay in policy announcement and failure to adhere to implementation timelines are some of the areas which continue to frustrate. But despite many drawbacks, India has many positives and assurances to offer: a vibrant democracy and a very active judiciary system.

The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down. In this new data-driven world, marketplaces reign supreme while interoperability, APIs and applications deliver un...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, will show how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants will get the download information, scripts, and complete end-to-end walkthrough of the analysis from start to finish. Participants will also be given the pract...
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT.
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated and cloud solutions through hybrid hosting – a sustainable solution for the data required to manage I...

Apps and devices shouldn't stop working when there's limited or no network connectivity. Learn how to bring data stored in a cloud database to the edge of the network (and back again) whenever an Internet connection is available. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate at IBM Cloud Data Services, will demonstrate techniques for replicating cloud databases with devices in order to build offline-first mobile or Internet of Things (IoT) apps that can provide a better, faster user experience, both offline and online. The focus of this talk will be on IBM Cloudant, Apa...
As a company adopts a DevOps approach to software development, what are key things that both the Dev and Ops side of the business must keep in mind to ensure effective continuous delivery? In his session at DevOps Summit, Mark Hydar, Head of DevOps, Ericsson TV Platforms, will share best practices and provide helpful tips for Ops teams to adopt an open line of communication with the development side of the house to ensure success between the two sides.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at different existing uses of peer-to-peer data sharing and how it can become useful in a live session to...

"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
The broad selection of hardware, the rapid evolution of operating systems and the time-to-market for mobile apps has been so rapid that new challenges for developers and engineers arise every day. Security, testing, hosting, and other metrics have to be considered through the process. In his session at Big Data Expo, Walter Maguire, Chief Field Technologist, HP Big Data Group, at Hewlett-Packard, will discuss the challenges faced by developers and a composite Big Data applications builder, focusing on how to help solve the problems that developers are continuously battling.
