Piracy has given the film industry sleepless nights and there seems to be no solution to put a stop to this. In 2018, big releases like 2.0, Simmba, Maari 2, fell prey to this menace. Rajinikanth's latest offering Petta too has been hit by piracy. And that’s not all. Piracy is impacting the industry globally.

According to Tecxipio, a Germany-based data analytics company, interest in downloading Hindi movies increased by nearly 30 percent in four years between 2013 and 2017. Among Hindi films in 2018, Padmaavat was most shared in P2P networks with 73 lakh shares between January and June in 157 days. Other Hindi films that saw high downloads and shares last year include Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (52.65 lakh), Baaghi 2 (52.34 lakh), PadMan (46.03 lakh), Raid (45.60 lakh), among others.

International markets where piracy of Bollywood films is rampant include Tanzania and Ireland. According to data analysis by Tecxipio, number of Hindi movie downloads in Tanzania grew by around 250 percent between 2013 and 2017. As for the European market, Ireland tops the list with 100 percent growth.

Further on the list, Macedonia, Germany, Bosnia, Herzegovina and Turkey also feature in the list of European countries with growing demand for Bollywood films in terms of downloads and P2P sharing.
