India smartphone shipments drop 12% to 48 million units in Q3

Monday 15 November 2021 | 21:24 CET | News
India's smartphone market fell by 12 percent year-on-year to 48 million units shipped in the third quarter of 2021. This follows four consecutive quarters of growth, according to a report from International Data Corporation (IDC). The report also shows that much of this can be attributed to component shortages as well as an unusually high Q3 2020 comparison base (whereas this year's post-lockdown demand was addressed by July). Compared to the third quarter of 2019, the third quarter of 2021 grew by 3 percent as channels stocked up for the Diwali quarter amid the supply shortages.
