Highlights from the Report

  • Social & Content apps saw a 112.64% growth rate, with Tier 2 cities bagging the top growth Tier, driving new India’s growth story.

  • Fantasy & Sports Apps saw consistent growth, with IPL, Asia Cup, and ICC T20 Cricket World Cup contributing the most to the trend. The segment, which witnessed a growth of 71.50% in 2022, recorded the highest growth in Tier 2 cities.

  • Across categories, Tier 2 cities saw the highest growth percentage, with cities such as Patna witnessing a 277.5% growth rate and Jaipur witnessing a growth rate of 275.7%. Top Tier 3 cities included Hisar and Mohali at 289% and 232%, respectively. 


Thoughts from the category leaders 

One of the most striking trends from the e-commerce industry last year, especially d2c, has been the growth in orders from tier 1, 2 & 3 towns. Interestingly, in FY 2022, 45% of orders on the GoKwik network came from tier 3 cities month-on-month,” says Chirag Taneja, Co-Founder & CEO, GoKwik.

The pandemic has significantly altered how viewers consume content. We have observed a growing trend of viewers watching teasers and sneak peeks of upcoming episodes. This trend and a massive upsurge in viewership from Tier 2 cities like Indore, Lucknow, and Jaipur, which now contribute to our top 10% viewership, demonstrates the increasing appetite for OTT platforms in these regions,” says Jayant Kumar, Director of Product Management, Zee5.

Since September 2022, the Chingari has seen a 2x increase in monthly active users, with most of the user base coming from Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities in India. The platform’s content creators have also increased their video output, resulting in a 4x increase in videos created between September 2022 and February 2023,” says Biswatma Nayak, CTO and Co-Founder, Chingari
