Lights, Camera, Action!

As we all know, the last few years have been rough for multiplex runners. Back-to-back Covid waves plus stiff competition from deep-pocketed OTT players messed up business big time. If that wasnโ€™t enough, the recovery was delayed further as a slew of flops at the box office slowed footfalls!!! ๐Ÿ‘Ž

Weak content, social media boycott and high ticket prices were some of the main reasons for their failure, said experts. A short OTT window (typically a month or two since release) also discouraged viewers to step out in large numbers. But, going forward, industry watchers expect this trend to reverse. ๐Ÿคž

The recent success of the Ranbir-Alia starrer Brahmastra, despite mixed reviews, is a sign of strong pent-up demand amongst moviegoers. A power-packed lineup of movies ahead of the festive season like Avatar 2, Black Adam and Vikram Veda have also spurred sentiment. Strong marketing, differentiated content (high on VFX) and solid star cast continue to give movie houses an edge over OTT platforms, said experts. ๐Ÿ’ฏ

The completion of the PVR-Inox merger, to form Indiaโ€™s largest entertainment company, is also a major positive. The combined entity will have +1,500 screens pan India and control ~40% of the multiplex market. This share would increase further as they add more screens and old-school theatres (70% of the total film exhibition market) continue to bleed. The merger will also result in significant revenue and cost synergies like negotiating better terms for ad income. PS – domestic brokerage firm JM Financial sees upto 30% in multiplex stocks. ๐Ÿค‘


Chartbustersย 

The BSE Consumer Durables Index rallied +30% in the past 3 months to hit a new all-time high. But, why so? ๐Ÿค”

Markets are expecting demand for consumer goods and electronics to shoot up ahead of the all-important festive season. Early trends indicate healthy demand and experts are optimistic that sales would match (if not exceed) pre-Covid levels. For instance, a record 1.6 crore 5G smartphones are expected to be sold during this period, according to industry body Techarc. Thatโ€™s insane!!!ย  ๐Ÿคฏ

Besides this, prices of key raw materials like copper, steel and aluminum have also cooled off in recent months. Lower input costs plus recent price hikes may boost profitability, said experts. ๐Ÿ“Š

For those who donโ€™t know, the festive period makes up nearly a third of the annual sales for these companies. Covid-led restrictions and supply chain bottlenecks hurt business in the past two years. ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ
