Exploring India’s Media & Entertainment Landscape

Seminars
Virtual Event Virtual Event

The Government of Ontario is hosting a webinar offering a snapshot of India’s vibrant media and entertainment industries, including major stakeholders, government initiatives and future growth plans.

The online event will interest Ontario game and app developers, e-sports companies, digital media firms, and specialized technology companies involved in software and hardware, including augmented and virtual reality, gaming, animation, and visual effects (VFX).

Anticipated to be worth more than C$133 billion by 2030, the media and entertainment industry is bolstered by the public’s huge appetite for film and video products, an international reputation for world-class movies, and government ambitions to turn India into a content creation hub. India’s online gaming sector will reach C$3.8 billion, and the animation and VFX segments are anticipated to hit C$4 billion, by 2025. More than 1,600 films were released in 2022. In 2021, the Indian government announced it would create a National Centre of Excellence for AVGC, or animation, visual effects, gaming and comics. Robust activity in India’s digital media sector will provide leading Ontario-based technology companies exciting opportunities for global sales and partnerships.

The session will cover:

  • The experience of foreign digital media companies doing business in India; • Opportunities and strategies for Ontario companies to sell digital media technologies to Indian companies; • Collaboration opportunities with Indian stakeholders involved in the media and entertainment industries; • Advice from industry experts and Ontario government staff on market-entry and growth strategies; and • Preliminary details of an Ontario government digital media export business mission to India Joy in 2024, the largest gaming, animation, visual effects, e-sports and entertainment event in India.
