• Mobile users in India | Statista
For the entire year, mobile handset vendors have shipped around million mobile handset units in India. However, 4Q bucked this trend. If one were to look at historic trends, the India mobile handset market usually sees high refresh cycles in May-June, coinciding with the college admission season, and in September-October, owing to the festive season. Its shipments grew more than five-fold in 4Q. This new trend led to surge in market share of feature phones.
