Just 2 companies control 50% of India's smartphone market
The year 2018 ended with just two companies together controlling around 50 per cent share of the India smartphone market - Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi and South Korean giant Samsung, according to latest data released by International Data Corporation (IDC).
Xiaomi surpassed Samsung to become the market leader in 2018 with 28.9 per cent share in the Indian smartphone market which shipped 142.3 million units last year, according to IDC's Asia/Pacific Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker report. Samsung came second with 22.4 per cent share.
In 2017, Xiaomi had 20.9 per cent market share, compared to 24.7 per cent share of Samsung.
In 2018, Vivo (14.2 per cent), OPPO (10.2 per cent) and Transsion (6.4 per cent) were the other three brands that found a place in the list of top five smartphone brands in the country.
Except Samsung, four of the five smartphone brands are based in China.
2018年，印度前5大手机品牌还有Vivo (14.2%), OPPO (10.2%)和 Transsion (6.4%)
Samsung should take full advantage of the present anti China feelings in India. This is the time for them to leapfrog over all Chinese brands. They need not introduce any new brand but rationalise the price of one of their better models in the mid price category.
WHAT A PITY !!!???EVEN JIO IS NOT INTERESTED FIGHT AGAINST THESE COMPANIES !!!!???IF WITHIN REACH BY WAY OF GRABBING OTHERS BUSINESSES THEY R SUCCESSFUL. TOWERS ONLY.
Moral of the story: We are controlled not only by US but Chinese & Koreans also in every field - Thanks to Technology - A Boon or Bane?
