In Q3, smartphone shipments in India posted a 47 percent sequential quarter-on-quarter (QoQ) growth on the back of robust consumer demand and despite persistent supply constraints.

Xiaomi (23 percent), Samsung (18 percent), and Vivo (15 percent) captured the top three spots in the smartphone market, followed by realme and Oppo.

The feature phone segment declined 21 percent (YoY), driven by the continued consumer transition to smartphones.

The 2G feature phone segment declined 27 percent YoY, with itel (27 percent), Lava (19 percent), and Samsung (14 percent) capturing the top three spots.

Samsung launched 10 new smartphone models, including 7 5G smartphone models. Nearly 20 percent of all Samsung smartphones were 5G capable.

The report mentioned that the Samsung Galaxy M02, M02s, and Galaxy A12 accounted for 34 percent of its shipments.

In Q4 2021, CMR anticipates the ongoing supply constraints, high costs, and consequent high retail costs, to continue challenging smartphone brands.

“In Q4 2021 and beyond, the supply chain constraints will continue to persist. Smartphone brands that are able to augment their component supplies, and plan in advance their market outreach strategies, will be able to succeed” said Anand Priya Singh, Analyst, Industry Intelligence Group, CMR.
