India FM Radio Industry to Touch USD 656 Million by 2019 Finds TechSci Research

BURNABY, Canada, August 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Anticipated roll out of Phase III Auction Policy coupled with growing advertising revenues portrays positive outlook for FM Radio Industry in India 

In India, radio has been an important mode of advertisement ever since the inception of the first two radio stations in Bombay (Now Mumbai) and Calcutta (Now Kolkata) in 1927. In 1999, privatization in FM radio industry started with Phase-I auction. However, the auction witnessed little success with only 21 radio channel launched in that year. The phase-II auction policy, which came into effect in 2005, provided the required boost to the industry with Indian government allocating licenses to 245 operators. However, with the upcoming Phase - III auctions the more new licenses are expected to be allocated which would further drive the market for FM Radio Stations in India.

According to TechSci Research report "India FM Radio Industry Forecast & Opportunities, 2019", the country's FM radio industry is forecast to reach USD656 million by 2019. Over the last five years, Delhi/NCR, followed by Maharashtra have emerged as the leading markets for FM radio in the country.

"Alternate advertisement channels such as promotion of concerts, plays, product demonstrations and other live events such as music awards, sports events and youth events, which are directed towards creating a direct customer connect, are also contributing to the growth in FM radio industry in India.", said Mr. Chechi.
