  • Lava Industry Overview

Industry Statistics

  • The information technology (IT) sector is comprised of companies that produce software, hardware or semiconductor equipment, or companies that provide internet or related services. In India, IT and ITES industry is divided into four major segments – IT services, business process management (BPM), software products and engineering services, and hardware.
  • In 2021, there has been a significant jump in ASP(average selling price) and higher volumes, the Indian smartphone market is estimated to touch Rs 2 trillion. From its previous high of Rs 11,600 in 2019, the ASP for smartphones is now estimated to breach Rs 12,300 in 2021.
  • Rising disposable income, cheaper internet, and the need to always stay connected are some of the factors that have led the Indian smartphone market to grow into one of the largest smartphone markets in the world. The pandemic has also created the new normal work environment which requires people to always stay connected working from home thus increasing the need for smartphones. Entertainment and remote learning have further increased the need for smartphones post the pandemic.  
  • As per an analysis by Frost and Sullivan(F&S), India's market for smartphones comprised of 143.3 million units compared to 110.8 million units for feature phones in 2020. The analysis also ascertains that Middle East, Africa and India account for over 68% of the global feature phone demand. According to F&S, Lava International is the third largest feature phone company in India with a market share of 13.4%, in terms of sales volume in the financial year 2021.
  • For the IT hardware industry, Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY) has notified "Electronics and Information Technology Goods (Requirement for Compulsory Registration) Order, 2012" as per which no person shall manufacture or store for sale, import, sell or distribute goods which do not conform to the Indian Standard.
  • The key competitors of the company include Micromax Mobiles, Samsung, Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi etc

Future Prospects

  • According to an analysis by Frost and Sullivan, India's mobile phone market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.6% from 2020 to 2025 increasing from US$ 18.5 Bn in 2020 to US$ 34.9 Bn in 2025.
  • As per GSMA, India is on its way to becoming the second-largest smartphone market globally by 2025 with around 1 billion installed devices and is expected to have 92 Cr. unique mobile subscribers by 2025 which will include 9 Cr. 5G connections.

Government Initiatives

  • The mobile manufacturing sector is open for 100% foreign direct investment. The industry attracted FDI worth INR 1,715 Cr. in 2018 from various parts of the world. However, Chinese firms have been dominating the list of investors. Brands such as Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi were the prominent Chinese investors, while Samsung, Apple and Taiwanese contract manufacturer Foxconn were among others.
  • The Union budget, 2018-19 raised the customs duty on mobile phones again from 15% to 20% to encourage domestic manufacturing of mobile phones.
  • The PLI(Production-linked Incentive) scheme offers incentives of 4-6% on incremental sales of mobile phones manufactured in India to eligible companies for a period of five years from the base year (2019-20). High-end manufacturers or companies producing handsets worth over Rs. 15,000 (~US$ 200) must sell goods worth Rs. 4,000 crore (~US$ 550 million) or more to avail the subsidy in 2020-21.
  •  The NPE 2019, approved by the union cabinet, has set an ambitious target of manufacturing goods and offering services worth Rs 26 trillion by 2025 and half of it is expected to come from a robust mobile handsets sector. The policy relies heavily on the success of the mobile manufacturing ecosystem in the country. The policy is aimed at manufacturing 1 billion handsets locally, valued at Rs 13 trillion, by 2025 that would include the export of 600 million devices worth Rs 7 trillion.
