CRISIL Ratings webinar: Looking through the haze: Media and entertainment sector in times of Covid - 19



The media and entertainment sector's revenue correlates strongly to economic growth.


India's GDP growth is heading towards a decadal low because of the 40-day extended lockdown to counter the Covid-19 pandemic.


Consequently, advertising revenue of the media and entertainment sector would also take a hard knock.


What would be the likely impact of this on overall growth of the sector and sub-sectors?


While advertisement revenue has rebounded sharply with a revival in economic growth in the past, what would be the trajectory this time around?


For answers, CRISIL is organising a webinar where its experts will discuss aspects such as:

  • Sector outlook in fiscals 2021 and 2022
  • Revenue growth expectations - advertisement and subscription
  • Relative position of sub-sectors (TV broadcasting and distribution, digital, print, radio, out-of-home media, and cinema)
  • Credit outlook of sub-sectors


This will be followed by a panel discussion with industry experts and a Q&A session.
