India smartphone market recovers in Q2, tops 34 million shipped units

Wednesday 11 August 2021 | 21:29 CET | News
India's smartphone market started the second quarter of 2021 on a low note amidst the second wave of Covid-19 but quickly recovered towards the end of the quarter, seeing an 86 percent year-on-year growth to 34 million units at 30 June, according to a report from IDC. While 2021 is expected to see single-digit growth, the report authors expect the second half of 2021 to see a drop year-on-year, with lower demand, uncertainties around the third Covid wave, persistent supply constraints, and rising component prices along with intensifying inflationary rates.
