Q3’18: India Smartphone Market Grew by 10% Annually

by Rajeev Nair | Oct 31, 2018

Ahead of the festive season, the Indian Smartphone market grew in double digits in Q3 2018. Per our most recent report, available here from the Handset Country Share Tracker (HCST) Service, smartphone shipments grew by 10% annually and 24% sequentially, in the quarter.

Xiaomi, Samsung and Oppo held the top three positions, in cyclically the strongest quarter of the year. Q3 2018 did witness the highest ever quarterly smartphone shipments in India, however with a late festive season, growth did taper down in the quarter. We hence expect some momentum shifting to the fourth quarter of the year, in the country.

India smartphone market continued to consolidate further with the quarter witnessing the highest ever combined market share by the top five vendors. Our extensive quarterly report contains handset and smartphone shipments and Market share by key vendors and operating systems in India, from Q1 2009 to Q3 2018.
