INTRODUCTION OF TV INDUSTRIES
Television in India has been in existence for three decades. For the first 17 years, it spread haltingly and transmission was mainly in black and white. The thinkers and policy makers of the country, which had just been liberated from centuries of colonial rule, frowned upon television, looking on at it as a luxury Indians could do without. In 1955 a Cabinet decision was taken disallowing any foreign investments in print media, which has since been followed religiously for nearly 45 years. Sales of TV sets, as reflected by licenses issued to buyers were just 676,615 until 1977.
Television has come to the forefront only in the past 15 years and more so in the past seven. There have been two ignition points: the first in the eighties when State-owned broadcaster Doordarshan (DD) introduced color TV during the 1982 Asian Games. It then proceeded to install transmitters nationwide rapidly for terrestrial broadcasting. In this period no private enterprise was allowed to set up TV stations or to transmit TV signals.
The second spark came in the early nineties with the broad cast of satellite TV by foreign programmers like CNN followed by Star TV and a little later by domestic channels such as Zee TV and Sun TV into Indian homes. Prior to this, Indian viewers had to make do with DD's chosen fare, which was dull, non-commercial in nature, directed towards only education and socio-economic deve3lopment. Entertainment programs were few and far between. And when the solitary few serials like Hum Log (1984), and mythological dramas: Ramayana ((1987-88) Mahabharat (988-89) were televised, millions of viewers stayed glued to their sets.
When, urban Indians learnt that it was possible to watch the Gulf War on television, they rushed out and bought dishes for their homes. Others turned entrepreneurs and started offering the signal to their neighbours by flinging cable over treetops and varandahs. From the large metros satellite TV delivered via cable moved into smaller towns, spurring the purchase of TV sets and even the upgradation from black and white to colour TVs.
DD responded to this satellite TV invasion by launching an entertainment and commercially driven channel and introduced entertainment programming on its terrestrial network. This again fuelled the purchase of sets in the hinterlands where cable TV was not available.
The initial success of the channels had a snowball effect: more foreign programmers and Indian entrepreneurs flagged off their own versions. From two channels prior to 1991, Indian viewers were exposed to more than 50 channels by 1996. Software producers emerged to cater to the programming boom almost overnight. Some talent came from the film industry, some from advertising and some from journalism.
More and more people set up networks until there was a time DD responded to this satellite TV invasion by launching an entertainment and commercial driven channel and introduced entertainment programming on its terrestrial network. This again fuelled the purchase of sets in the hinterlands where cable TV was not available. From two channels prior to 1991, Indian viewers were exposed to more than 50 channels by 1996.
The 1990's time period:
The production of TV sets plummeted to 4 millions units in 1991 due to higher taxes and devaluation. The revival began in 1993 when import duties where slashed on TV components and Sales Tax and excise duties were reduced. This combined with rise in purchasing power in urban and rural areas, strong replacement demand and market improvement in TV software provided a fillip to the industry. The exchange offer and replacement schemes were earlier handled by traders in small way the took on every attractive hue with manufacturers like AKAI promoting these in you big way. There have been other reasons too. The proliferation of satellite channels have also acted as an incentive explains K.S. raman president of CETMA (Consume Electronics and TV Manufacturers Association), the association of consumer electronic manufacturers: "These schemes were helped along by the proliferation of satellite channels which made even a two year only TV out dated as it did not have the S and HY bands to tune in to all the channels offered by the cable networks. The replacement schemes were also saved the consumer the trouble of finding a buyer. For his old TV set for a decent price. This led to you proponent of purchase mainly this all activities done though dealers. "The demand has improved since then to touch 7.9 million units 1996-97. The period saw entry of MNC's which has altered the equations in one industry.
BPL, VIDEOCON, SONY, SAMSUNG, LG in the industry have dominated the scene in an oligopoly - the market in this manner is raerely seen in any other sector of Indian industry. But now whose market seems to be ablaze with aggressive marketing maneuvers by MNC hoarding, TV, spats, ads, etc.
