Web 2.0 start-ups together have 15 lakh users in India: IDC

According to a study by IDC, India-focused Web 2.0 start-ups such as MingleBox, Fropper, SirfDosti and BigAdda have a combined user base of around 15 lakh users in the country, after eliminating overlaps.

The study excludes the users of established, large global players like Orkut, YouTube, Flickr and Wikipedia which “have a more dominant base and fan following in India as compared to their home-grown competitors.”

Kapil Dev Singh, country manager, IDC India, has said, “A high degree of entrepreneurial activity has been instrumental in shaping the current Web 2.0 scenario in India so far. The trend is likely to continue in 2008 and a ‘me-too’ driven mushrooming up will ready the ground for a phase of shakeouts and consolidation, as some of the ventures would begin to lose steam. This phase is expected to set in around late 2008 or early 2009.”
