DTH Industry Might Grow 6% During This Financial Year: CRISIL


The DTH segment is likely to witness six percent growth, during this financial year, as per Crisil's new report. The report said that DTH operators have added many subscribers and expected to get Rs. 2,200 crore in FY 21.

DTH Industry Might Grow 6% During This Financial Year


"At a time when most other industries are seeing a 20-30 percent drop in revenues, the overall revenue of the DTH industry has remained stable with a marginal decline of about 2-3 percent in subscribers. Despite the initial decline, there was a marginal increase in average revenue per user (ARPU) in Q1 FY21," Sachin Gupta, senior director, Crisil Ratings, said.

The new report comes soon after DTH operators have launched several packs to attract users as they have lost subscribers. The operators have reduced the prices of set-top boxes and offering packs at affordable prices. However, the growth is estimated to be less than the last financial year. The report added that last year's growth comes from the subscriber base and jump in average revenues per user.

"This fiscal (FY21), the subscriber base is seen increasing another 600-700 bps to 68 million, which will lift revenue growth up 400-600 bps. But ARPU is seen contracting 100-200 bps to Rs. 310-315 on downtrading by viewers and reduction in charges for multi-TV subscribers as per the New Tariff Order (NTO) 2.0," Sachin added.
