12 – 12:25 PM   India Spotlight: Understanding Listening Behaviors and Local Market Dynamics

India is a vibrant and complex music market experiencing massive growth driven by local listeners as well as fans around the globe.  The market is driven by a close relationship to the Bollywood film industry and the unique need to cater to 22 official languages which creates variances in music popularity by region. This presentation by Nielsen will provide new insight into the Indian music market, the composition of the country’s listeners and their behaviors relating to streaming music and video.

12:25 – 1:45 PM Exploring the Innovative Advances of China and India
As of May 2019, the world's three most populous countries are the United States with 330 million people, India with 1,346 million people, and China with 1,397 million people. From advanced space programs and important movie production hubs to their own ecommerce and content streaming platforms, these innovative countries offer artists and rights-holders much more than just scale. The HUGE scale (over 35% of the world’s population is in China and India) can be distracting… both markets have strong culture and arts tradition, as well as very competitive marketplaces. Both with their own specializations, selling music into these countries requires research and insights. Chinese and Indian leadership is increasingly visible, with the goal that innovations will drive their music and business exports to success around the world. Two experts will share their own personal overviews of their home markets and their national music businesses.
