"Generation C switches between devices 27 times a day, and Indian users watch nearly 30 per cent of their YouTube videos on mobile. Smartphone owners spend one quarter of their YouTube time on mobile, while tablet owners spend about 20 per cent," the study said.

Google predicts that as Smartphone penetration continues to rise in India, so will the opportunities for brands to personally reach Gen C, it added.

"Each month, people log on to YouTube around the world to watch more than 48 hours of video. YouTube's growth trajectory in India matches the global trend," the study said.

More than 70 per cent of YouTube's viewers in India are under the age of 35, while 72 per cent have a college degree or higher, it added.
