Is India the No. 1 Animated TV series producer in the world?
Well, not even near that number, going by the stats below.
In 2005, China’s animation products counted for a third of the world’s total. Japan is the No.1 cartoon production country in the world, selling US$9 billion worth of products annually.
China holds a cartoon fest every year an Changsha. A part of the festival included an exposition at the 24,000-square-kilometer Changsha International Exposition Center. Nearly 30 cartoon organizations, companies, media, publishing groups, magazines, websites, education institutes, investment agencies from France, Canada, the US, South Korea, Germany and Greece participated in the expo. India, does have anything anywhere near that size in exposure or marketplace.
Also held during the festival was the 4th China Cartoon Industry Forum, the focus of which was China’s mobile phone cartoon and animation market.
“One exciting device that holds great potential for animation in China and around the world is the mobile phone,” Sander K. Johnson, president of International Television for Asia (ITA), said during the forum.
