The first in-depth study of the Indian creative industries, this book provides a comprehensive mapping of the Indian creative industries and its policy landscape, developing and defining key concepts and terms and offering detailed case studies of specific sectors, geographic regions and governance structures.
Using an ecosystem framework, this book focuses on strategy/policy; tangible and intangible infrastructure; and funding and investment to understand the main drivers and barriers across nine sub-sector value chains. With investment from global brands into many sectors, it tracks how Indian creative industries are fostering innovation and design for social and ecological sustainability. It also delves into India’s informal economy to share key policy insights.
The volume will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of public policy, business studies and South Asian studies. It will also be a key document for foreign investors willing to invest in one of the fastest-growing and stable economies in the world.
