As per KPMG report, “The online video consumption in India has evolved in a significant way in the last couple of years. With consumption now going mass and viewers spending close to 8.5 hours a week on online video, we see a homogenous pattern of consumption emerging cutting across age groups, income levels and professions.” India is one of the fastest-growing entertainment and media markets globally and is expected to keep that momentum. As data and digital infrastructure has become exceedingly accessible even in small cities of India, the market for OTT has widened enormously. With easy and affordable availability of internet, the internet users have escalated to 500 millions. By 2023 estimation, the internet users are likely to touch $5 billion. Also the penetration of smartphones has surpassed 600 millions.
