According to media reports, Samsung is slowly losing control of the Indian smartphone market. Three years ago, Samsung slipped from the No. 1 position in China, paving the way for Xiaomi to become the leader in smartphones. In the past few quarters, the two companies have been in fierce competition. However, Samsung is now far behind Xiaomi.
According to the latest data from market research company Canalys, Samsung only shipped 5.5 million smartphones in India in the second quarter of 2021. This is close to half of Xiaomi’s sales. Samsung’s market share in the quarter was 17%, while Xiaomi, which shipped 9.5 million units, had a market share of 29%. Samsung’s year-on-year growth was 87%, while Xiaomi’s year-on-year growth was 77%.
Vivo shipped 5.4 million smartphones in the country, with a market share of nearly 17%, beating Samsung by a narrow margin and ranking second. Realme smartphone shipments were 4.9 million units, an increase of 181% year-on-year, and its market share reached 15%. On the other hand, OPPO smartphone shipments are 3.8 million units, with a market share of 12%.
Compared with the second quarter of 2020, the overall Indian smartphone market has grown by 87%. Last year, the country experienced an epidemic in the first and second quarters, which severely affected the sales of smart phones, and the smart phone market has not yet fully recovered.You can buy cell phone batteries on oriccabattery.co.uk
