India’s Pay TV Market to Create a Demand of 140 Million Smart CardsDuring 2013-2018As a result of the governments phase-wise digitization programme, the demand of smart cardsin the Pay TV sector is expected to increase robustly in India.IMARC Group in its latest report entitled “Smart Card Industry in India: SIM, Identity,Banking, Transport, Healthcare, Pay TV, Loyalty & PDS” expects India’s Pay TV market tocreate a demand of 140 million smart cards during 2013-2018. Findings from the report suggestthat with 155 million subscriber households in 2012, India is the third largest TV market after theUnited States and China. TV signals in India are currently distributed in analog as well as indigital and terrestrial formats. Most cable operators in the country are providing analog TVservice while all DTH operators are providing a digital TV service.The report found that the Government of India amended the Cable Television Networks(Regulation) Act in October 2011 to announce implementation of a phase-wise digitizationprogramme of PAY TV services throughout the country. Findings from the report suggest thatthis would result in all cable TV households to receive digital TV signals through a Set Top Box.As part of digitization, every cable operator will be legally bound to transmit digital signals, whichcan be received at the subscribers home only through a Set Top Box. Since smart cards arerequired in each Set Top Box, the growth in Set Top Box sales is expected to create a hugeopportunity for smart cards in India.This study, an updated and far more extensive and analytical version of our popular 2011 study,provides and draws upon a comprehensive analysis of every major smart card segment in India.Key metrics and events such as smart card requirements, current and future volume and valuedemand, key smart card projects, project implementation timelines, success and risk factors,costs, etc have been comprehensively analyzed in this report. This study aims to serve as anexcellent guide for investors, researchers, consultants, marketing strategists, and all those whoare planning to foray into the Indian smart cards market in some form or the other.To buy the complete report or to get a free sample, please contact:IMARC Group Asia
