While animation entertainment sector (content for television, films or DVD) comprised 20 per cent of the animation industry, the custom content development and education segment made up 64 per cent.
The custom content development and education segment is also expected to see momentum largely due to corporate e-learning programmes and grow at 11 per cent per annum, the study said.
