Growth Drivers

Growing efforts of several companies to increase manufacturing of 5G smartphones

Companies at the forefront of introducing new technologies have developed a detailed strategy to introduce more 5G products and democratize the new network in India. Realme launched its 5G smartphone in India in 2020 and has since become the fastest growing 5G smartphone brand in 2022. The company has dedicated 90% of its R&D resources to the development of 5G technology and related products. By the end of 2022, more than half of their smartphone launches will support 5G networks. Furthermore, OPPO, a smartphone manufacturer, established a 5G R&D team seven years ago. They have collaborated with industry players and telecom operators to provide the most comprehensive 5G experience for their users, from testing the first 5G WhatsApp video call in 2021 to realize the country's aim of Atmanirbhar (self-reliant India) 5G and supporting India's first 5G call testing at IIT-Madras located in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. Smartphone penetration in India will deepen as 5G is increasingly adopted. Additionally, HMD Global, a parent company of Nokia brand smartphones, is expanding its operations in India to meet an increasing demand for its products and deploy services. Nokia aims to grow its market share by helping 5G reach every corner and closing the digital divide in the country. According to a research study, one out of every two smartphones sold in India will support 5G. Several companies are working to make 5G smartphones more affordable. Hence, more launches of affordable 5G smartphones could drive the high growth of India 5G smartphone market.

Growing adoption of smartphones and spurring demand for better connectivity

5G network has been developed to meet the growing demand for data and robust connectivity. As the adoption of 5G-enabled smartphones and other devices grows, so will the sale of 5G subscriptions. Several key manufacturers are investing in the development of 5G networks. These factors suggest that India 5G smartphone market is expected to expand significantly in the coming years. Thus, growing smartphone penetration and online-based work and entertainment services are actively driving the growth of India 5G smartphone market. Along with it, a growing demand for an efficient network and increased demand for faster internet are supporting the expansion of the India 5G smartphone market. Work-from-home (WFH) culture has gained more popular during the COVID-19 pandemic, and many industrial sectors—including the IT sector—shifted to a home-based workforce. Growing social media usage, an increased interest in no-buffer video streaming, and other comparable factors are also expected contribute to an increased demand for better internet connectivity and lower data transfer latency in India during the period in analysis.

Government initiatives for high-speed network connectivity

In announcing the ambitious National Broadband Mission, which will require stakeholder investment of INR 7 trillion over the next few years, the Government of India pledged broadband access in all villages by the end 2022. The mission will make it easier for everyone in the country to have an equitable access to broadband services, particularly in rural and remote areas. An additional 30 lakh kilometers of optical fiber cable must be laid, and the tower density must increase from 0.42 to 1 tower for every 1,000 people. The mission is expected to make it possible to strengthen the technological foundation for development, entrepreneurship, health, and education in India. The overall goal of broadband mission is to accelerate the development of digital infrastructure, which will increase demand for 5G smartphones.

Restraints

High cost of 5G smartphones

A 5G chip costs nearly four times as much as a 4G chip, which raises the price of a 5G phone. The OEMs are not launching more expensive phones in India on purpose, because demand for 4G chips, which account for most smartphones in India, is limited. Consequently, it could act as a major restraining factor for the growth of India 5G smartphone market.

Impact of COVID-19 on India 5G Smartphone Market

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly affected the overall electronics manufacturing industry across India. Due to the closure of key countries' borders, the pandemic has also had an impact on global exports and imports of electronics and other products. However, the growing number of COVID-19 cases around the world increased smartphone usage and the need for high-speed networks due to several employees working from home because of a sedentary lifestyle during a lockdown, which is expected to boost the growth of India 5G smartphone market.
