India smartphone market sees highest ever shipments of 142.3 mln in 2018

Tuesday 12 February 2019 | 14:17 CET | News
India shipped 142.3 million smartphones in 2018, which represents an increase of 14.5 percent year-on-year compared to 2017. After a strong third quarter, India's smartphone market saw a sequential decline of 15.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2018, due to high channel inventory, but saw a healthy annual growth of 19.5 percent, driven primarily by multiple rounds of sales by e-tailers beyond the festive Diwali period lasting into December, according to a report from IDC.
