PVR is delighted to welcome Warburg Pincus as an investor as they continue to boost their long-term development and expansion.

Sneak peek into the multiplex sector

The Indian multiplex industry is at a cusp of rapid transformation and the next level of growth is pushed by consumer demand and experience, convenience and technology.

Box office revenue in India is seen at an estimated $1.64 billion in 2015 and is anticipated to rise to $2.74 billion in 2020, growing at an average annual rate of 10.9 per cent.

The multiplex sector continues to grow at a robust pace, hence, generating private equity investor interest. The growth will continue with the growth in tier 1 and tier 2 cities on the back of successful and growing movie launches.

In terms of multiplexes, India remains underserved. At the end of 2014, there were around 11,200 screens in the country as a whole—a small number considering the population and the appetite for cinema, the report said.
