Smartphone shipments in India fell in the first quarter of 2022, although Realme saw a year-over-year increase

According to a survey by Counterpoint Research, smartphone shipments in the country were on the decline in Q1 2022.

The report also discovered that Realme is the only company on the list to have grown by nearly 40% year over year, while Xiaomi maintained its market share lead despite a 13 percent fall year over year.

According to Counterpoint Research, smartphone shipments in India fell 1% in the first quarter of 2022, to 38 million units.

The global chipset scarcity and component supply limits caused by China’s recent lockdowns have been cited as important factors in the fall. In India, growing inflation has contributed to a drop in smartphone consumption.
