India's smartphone market sees first annual decline in history to 145 million units in 2020

Friday 29 January 2021 | 09:26 CET | News
India ended 2020 with nearly 145 million smartphones, which represents a decline of just 2 percent year-on-year from 148 million units in 2019. India's smartphone market saw a strong recovery in the second half of 2020, according to a report from Canalys. The report also shows that 2020 was India's first full-year decline in history. However, following a record high quarter in the three months to 30 September 2020, boosted by strong sell-in in preparation of holiday promotions, smartphone shipments in India in the fourth quarter reached 43.9 million units, up 13 percent year-on-year.
