India, with its diverse culture and rich musical heritage, has seen a significant growth in the Digital Music market.

Customer preferences:
Indian consumers have shown a strong inclination towards digital music platforms in recent years. This can be attributed to the increasing availability of affordable smartphones and the widespread adoption of high-speed internet connectivity. Furthermore, the convenience and flexibility offered by digital music platforms have made them a preferred choice among the younger population, who are avid music listeners.

Trends in the market:
One of the key trends in the Indian Digital Music market is the rise of regional and independent music. India is a country with diverse languages and cultures, and consumers are increasingly seeking music in their native languages. This has led to the emergence of regional music streaming platforms that cater specifically to these preferences. Additionally, independent artists are gaining popularity and are using digital platforms to reach a wider audience, bypassing traditional record labels. Another trend in the market is the growing popularity of curated playlists and personalized recommendations. Digital music platforms are leveraging advanced algorithms and machine learning to analyze user preferences and provide tailored music recommendations. This has enhanced the overall music discovery experience for consumers and has contributed to increased engagement on these platforms.

Local special circumstances:
India has a unique music industry landscape, with a strong influence of Bollywood music. Bollywood, the Hindi-language film industry, plays a significant role in shaping the music preferences of Indian consumers. The popularity of Bollywood music has led to a high demand for film soundtracks and has also influenced the music streaming market. Digital music platforms in India often feature a wide selection of Bollywood music, catering to the preferences of a large segment of the population.

Modeling approach / market size:

The market size is determined through a bottom-up approach.

To estimate the market size for each country individually, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific industry associations, such as various macroeconomic indicators, historical developments, current trends, and reported performance indicators of key market players. In particular, we consider average prices and annual purchase frequencies.


We apply a variety of forecasting techniques, depending on the behavior of the relevant market. For instance, the S-curve function and exponential trend smoothing are well suited for forecasting digital products and services due to the non-linear growth of technology adoption. The main drivers are GDP per capita, consumer spending per capita, and 4G coverage.
