COVID-19 Analysis 

The global spread of COVID-19 has had a significant impact on a variety of industrial sectors, including entertainment and media. For example, according to the Indian analytics firm CRISIL Limited, the Indian entertainment and media industry is predicted to experience a significant drop in revenue collected by industry players, owing to insignificant content creation activities such as shootings that are cancelled due to the pandemic situation and rapid spread of the virus. As the virus began to have a negative impact on the economy, marketing was one of the first areas where corporations cut spending. Budget cuts are occurring at an alarming rate. While a greater percentage of the industry confronts difficulties conducting business, over-the-top (OTT) media services are projected to record higher revenues as a result of the huge number of employees compelled to stay at home during the lockdown. The ongoing demand for online communications services across digital platforms, such as mobiles, laptops, tablets, and desktops, is one of the factors driving the demand for OTT platforms. Furthermore, as products and services become more affordable to individuals, there is a tremendous increase in internet penetration and smartphone users. The new coronavirus outbreak has had a significant global impact, including the music and entertainment industries.

Due to the deployment of lockdowns in various nations, public meetings have been outlawed, and theatres, music festivals, plays, and concerts have been closed or cancelled indefinitely. During this unprecedented global circumstance, the media and entertainment industries face tremendous problems. Some of these include shifting consumer tastes for content, a quick decline in content development, government limitations, the postponement or cancellation of live concerts and events, corporations’ reduced advertising expenditure, decreased working capital, and a decline in marketing efforts. Furthermore, production units are under great strain as a result of movie and other material release date delays, theatre closures, and a halt in production activities.
