Corona virus is spreading its foot fast in India as well as all over the world. India has come at number three in the list of corona infected nations and more than 1.1 million cases of corona infection have been reported. During the Corona period all business has suffered a lot, due to which the smartphone industry has also not remained untouched. At the same time, due to the lockdown imposed to protect against Corona, the sale of the smartphone was much lower than before. This information has been revealed in the research firm Canals report. According to the report, there has been a 48 percent decrease in smartphone shipments. However, in the meantime, Xiaomi has sold the most phones in the Indian market.
According to research firm Canalys, Indian smartphone shipments declined by 48 percent in the second quarter of 2020 due to lower production and delayed imports. A total of 17.3 million ((1.73 crore) smartphones were sent to India in Q2 this year, compared to 33 million in Q2 2019. The Canalys report states that the decline has been due to less demand due to the coronavirus epidemic. Read: Learn how Jio Google’s cheap 5G phone will be completely made in India!

The research company says that the lockdown imposed to control the corona may have affected the country’s economy but it has seen a lot of change in people’s behavior regarding smartphones. Consumers postponed the decision to buy smartphones, which adversely affected the industry.
The phone was ordered from China
Let us know that due to low production in the first quarter, many smartphone companies had called for phones from outside, due to which the demand among customers remained. A media report surfaced a few months ago, in which a senior industry executive stated that Chinese companies have been producing in India for the last three years, but Oppo and Xiaomi will have to import from China to meet the current demand. Apart from this, Canalis expert Madhumita Chaudhary says that the path to the smartphone market in India is still quite difficult. But, after the unlock process started, the online platform started delivery of smartphones in the Green and Orange zones.
