In December 2013, CMR said 2013 witnessed the first time decline in growth of feature phones in India and this trend is going to further sharpen in 2014 as the primary focus of the industry as well as consumers would remain around the smartphones.
Made in India smartphones will amount to 47 percent of the total sales in 2014. With such tremendous growth and success witnessed by these brands in the local market, 2014 will be the time to look at newer geographies including MENA, Latin America and the SAARC region for the home grown vendors. CMR expects 3-4 such brands looking for new geographic markets.
