Podcasts, audiobooks, radio, music... the audio streaming industry in India is among the hottest markets out there today. At present, it has a small base of consumers, but the pace at which it is leapfrogging is noteworthy. In the recent past, there has been a surge of interest in both the creation and consumption of audio content, across genres.
Moreover, users perched on top of the proverbial pyramid are now adequately habituated to the concept of paying for content. This will impact the segment, surely?
Meanwhile, global audio streaming platforms have begun turning their focus towards India, lured by the sheer promise of scale the country offers. But with opportunity come challenges.
Audionxt is an afaqs! conference where we will take a close look at India's growing audio market. Through in-depth discussions with some of the most important names in this space, we will try and understand the factors driving this audio boom, the popularity of podcasts, the future of radio, the role of local language content, and, of course, monetisation models.
The conference will be held every day between July 26-30, 2021, at 4:00-4:45 pm.
Audionxt Week is part of afaqs!'s flagship 'All Week' initiative, which also includes eConferences like Television Week, Digipub Week, Languages Week, vdonxt Week, CMO Week and Gaming Week.
