Brand Value

The tournament's value increased rapidly between 2016 and 2018, as evidenced by a series of price increases from one season to the next. Financial experts valued the IPL at $4.16 billion in 2016, but that figure increased to $5.3 billion in 2017, and $6.13 billion in 2018.According to a Duff & Phelps report, one of the key contributors in the rapid growth of the Indian Premier League's worth was the decision to sign of a new television deal with Star India Private Limited, which engrossed more viewers because the IPL was broadcasted to regional channels in eight different languages, as opposed to the previous deal, which saw transmissions restricted to sports networks with English language commentary. The report also stated that the game was still recovering from current controversy, stating, "This IPL season has grabbed the eyeballs for all the right reasons with a relatively controversy-free tournament, coupled with some scintillating on-field performances that have brought the spotlight back on the game."

According to yet another independent report undertaken by Brand Finance, a London-based company, the IPL's profit margin increased by 37% following the end of the 2017 Indian Premier League to an all-time high of $5.3 billion — having crossed the five billion milestone for the first time in a season. The company’s director stated that the Indian Premier League, currently in its 11th season, is here to stay. The league has provided financial benefits to players, franchisees, sponsors, and India overall, triggering a strong urge among a variety of stakeholders to value it adequately. To ensure sustained development, management and team shareholders must look for new ways to engage fans, clubs, and sponsors. To know more about IPL, follow CBTF Speed News!
