Television is still the medium where brand advertising is noticed the most closely followed by digital. Axis My India, the consumer data insights company, has released its latest findings of the India Consumer Sentiment Index (CSI), a monthly analysis of consumer perception on a wide range of issues. The report highlights that media consumption has increased for 20% of those surveyed. It further emphasises the significance of 5G and enhanced telecom connectivity for speeding up India’s digitization. The study also included a few pre-Union Budget questions.


The survey was carried out via Computer-Aided Telephonic Interviews with a sample size of 6100 people across 27 states and UTs. 65% belonged to rural India, while 35% belonged to urban counterparts. In terms of regional spread, 23% belong to the Northern parts while 27% belong to the Eastern parts of India. Moreover, 28% and 22% belonged to Western and Southern parts of India respectively. 69% of the respondents were male, while 31% were female. In terms of the two majority sample groups, 33% reflect the age group 36YO to 50YO and 30% reflect the age group of 26YO to 35YO.


Commenting on the CSI report, Pradeep Gupta, Chairman & MD, Axis My India, said: “Consumers are looking forward to various measures taken by the government towards fuelling a digital India. As per 22% of those surveyed, penetration of ‘all things digital’ (better digital banking, better internet security, 5G) is important for Indian economy. This is because more and more people are adopting the digital way of life. The gap between ads noticed in digital over television is also reducing even though TV continues its dominance when it comes to advertising recall. It is thus important for marketers to take note of the respective strengths of the new vs old forms of advertising while designing their overall media mix.”
