Canalys: Indian smartphone shipments will decrease by nearly 50% in Q2

According to a latest Canalys report, the Indian smartphone market in the second quarter of 2020 has reduced its shipments by half compared with the same period last year.

During the epidemic lockdown, domestic smartphones in India were classified as non-essentials. Even giants such as Amazon and Flipkart banned the distribution of mobile phone products in India. This stalemate lasted until mid-May. According to Canalys report data, in the second quarter of this year, India’s overall smartphone shipments were only 17.3 million units, which was a 48% decrease from the 33 million units in the second quarter of 2019.

Due to the strong market share of Chinese mobile phone manufacturers in the Indian market, the decline in mobile phone shipments in the second quarter has a great impact on them. Xiaomi is the most affected. Data shows that the mobile phone manufacturer delivered 5.3 million mobile phones in the Indian market in the second quarter of 2020, compared with 10.3 million in the second quarter of 2019.

The epidemic has caused a great impact on the domestic smartphone market in India. Obviously, this is a turbulent period for the Indian smartphone market. Many mobile phone manufacturers have launched new models in India, hoping to re-occupy the market. Samsung has recently invested heavily in India, as have Apple and Foxconn. Major technology companies such as Facebook, Intel and Google are all interested in developing local businesses in India.
