Samsung gaining fruitful growth in key market, Xiaomi surrendered?




Xiaomi dominated the world’s second-largest smartphone market – India – for the past five years. However, consumers in India no longer prefer Xiaomi’s good-looking cheap smartphones, as Samsung is now focussing on advancing its Galaxy A series.

According to data compiled by Counterpoint Research via (Reuters), Xiaomi’s smartphone market radically plunged in India. In 2022, the Chinese phone maker kept the crown in the first three quarters, which transferred to Samsung at last, ending a five-year streak of dominance.

Samsung’s focus on mid-range portfolio and anti-China sentiments

Counterpoint data consists of market share records of the Indian smartphone industry since the end of 2017. As you can see in the chart below, Xiaomi was the market leader in almost every quarter, as Samsung started to lose its grip from Q2 2018 through Q1 2020.

During this time period, the South Korean tech giant didn’t think about Xiaomi’s expansion in the country, which gave an easy lead to rivals. At the same time, Samsung didn’t bring affordable phones with rock-solid specs to warm up the competition.

Xiaomi Samsung India market share

Seeing the downturn, Samsung restarted to focus on its Galaxy A lineup to gain the market share that it handed over to Xiaomi. This bold move helped the Korean vendor to spread its reach among consumers with affordable phones, better specs, longer software support, and secure/reliable phones.

During the same period, anti-China sentiments started to spread in the Indian smartphone market due to a severe military clash in late 2020. Due to consumers boycott of Chinese products, Xiaomi saw a market decline, which ended up surrendering dominance to Samsung in the last quarter.

In 2023, Samsung will continue to grow in the Indian smartphone, which the research chart heavily indicates. At the same time, the market decline of Xiaomi is expected to be continued further, giving an easy win to Samsung and hopes to Apple.
