    India is the ninth-largest civil aviation market in the world, with a market size of around US$ 16 billion and it is expected to become the third largest aviation market by 2020. With the introduction of the new civil aviation policy in 2016, the industry will see a new era of expansion, driven by factors such as low-cost carriers, modern airports, Foreign Direct Investment in domestic airlines, advanced information technology interventions and growing emphasis on regional connectivity, all with the aim of increasing regional connectivity, boosting cargo operations and making it easier, and possibly cheaper for passengers to fly.

However due to internet censorship and restrictions, traditional platforms have not been able to gain traction and the market is dominated by domestic social media such as Weibo and WeChat.
