Analyst Opinion

The Audio Advertising market in India is experiencing significant growth and development.

Customer preferences:
Customers in India are increasingly consuming audio content through various platforms such as music streaming apps, podcasts, and radio. This growing preference for audio content is driven by factors such as convenience, personalization, and the ability to multitask while listening. Additionally, the rise of affordable smartphones and internet penetration has made audio content more accessible to a wider audience in India.

Trends in the market:
One of the key trends in the Indian Audio Advertising market is the increasing popularity of music streaming apps. These apps provide a vast library of songs and offer personalized playlists based on user preferences. Advertisers are capitalizing on this trend by incorporating audio ads within the music streaming experience, targeting users based on their listening habits and preferences. This allows for more targeted and effective advertising campaigns. Another trend in the market is the growth of podcast advertising. Podcasts have gained popularity in India, with a wide range of topics and genres available for listeners. Advertisers are recognizing the potential of podcast advertising as a way to reach engaged and loyal audiences. They are partnering with popular podcast creators to integrate audio ads seamlessly into the content, ensuring a more immersive and engaging advertising experience.

Local special circumstances:
India has a diverse linguistic landscape, with multiple regional languages spoken across the country. This presents a unique opportunity for advertisers to target specific language-speaking audiences through audio ads. Advertisers can create localized audio content that resonates with regional audiences, allowing for more effective communication and engagement.

Underlying macroeconomic factors:
India is experiencing rapid urbanization and a growing middle class, which is driving consumer spending and economic growth. This provides a favorable environment for the Audio Advertising market to thrive, as advertisers have a larger target audience with disposable income. Additionally, India has a young population that is increasingly tech-savvy and digitally connected, further fueling the growth of the Audio Advertising market. In conclusion, the Audio Advertising market in India is witnessing significant growth and development due to changing customer preferences, such as the increasing consumption of audio content through various platforms. Advertisers are leveraging trends such as the popularity of music streaming apps and podcast advertising to reach their target audience more effectively. The linguistic diversity in India also presents unique opportunities for localized audio advertising. The underlying macroeconomic factors, such as rapid urbanization and a growing middle class, further contribute to the growth of the Audio Advertising market in India.


Data coverage:

Data encompasses enterprises (B2B). Figures are based on audio advertising spending and exclude agency commissions, rebates, production costs, and taxes. The market covers traditional radio advertising (broadcasting programs on terrestrial radio stations or networks) and digital audio advertising (pre- and in-stream audio ads and podcast streaming ads).

Modeling approach:

Market size is determined by a combined top-down and bottom-up approach. We use annual financial reports of the market-leading companies and industry associations, third-party reports, web traffic, and survey results from our primary research (e.g., Consumer Insights Global Survey) to analyze the markets. To estimate the market size for each country individually, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific industry associations, such as GDP, internet users, consumer spending, and digital consumer spending.


We use a variety of forecasting techniques, depending on the behavior of the market. For instance, the S-curve function is well suited to forecast digital products due to the non-linear growth of technology adoption, whereas exponential trend smoothing (ETS) is more suited for projecting steady growth in traditional advertising markets.

Additional notes:

Data is modeled using current exchange rates. The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war are considered at a country-specific level. The market is updated twice per year in case market dynamics change.
