India Smart TV Market Share, Size and Development Trends of Analysis Report 2028

India Smart TV Industry Overview

The India smart TV market size was valued at USD 1.42 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.8% from 2021 to 2028.

The market is expected to benefit from rising disposable income and OTT services. Indian households are transitioning, as consumers are shifting from traditional TVs to smart TV sets. By the end of 2019, consumer spending in India accounted for nearly USD26.94 billion due to changing lifestyles, the adoption of new technologies, increasing internet penetration, and rising income levels of the middle-class population. The COVID-19 pandemic had a substantial impact on the TV industry wherein delayed production, shutting down of manufacturing sites, and supply chain disruption negatively impacted sales and revenues. However, a surge in sales was observed during the first quarter of 2021 as the need for home entertainment increased. Most of the sales were through online platforms as e-commerce sites commenced delivery for non-essential products, as people were hesitant to step out due to social distancing norms.

According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) 2020, TV penetration was 69% in India and was driven by the Direct-To-Home (DTH) market. The number of active DTH subscribers was estimated to be 70.99 million in the country in December 2020, compared to 70.7 million in September 2020.

There has been a significant change in the way consumers access media content. Previously, viewers watched programs via cable or satellite at a specific time. The subscribers used to choose a channel package. In recent days, customers are shifting their preferences and preferring over-the-top content such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and YouTube. This shift is providing flexibility to customers as they can watch the programs according to their choice on a bigger screen.
