The smartphone usage in the low-income sections of India, which form over 70% of the population, is relatively small in comparison to urban areas. Recent reports says that India’s mobile penetration is at 73% (up from 30% in 2009), fast catching up to the global average of 93%. India is the fastest growing country for mobile Internet users with the latest predictions at 20% growth every quarter. This growth is mainly driven by low-cost smartphones, which are particularly interesting due to their enhanced capabilities and potential to enable services for the masses. With the advent of affordable smart-phones (Rs 3,000 - Rs 10,000) designed for the Indian user from indigenous manufacturers such as Miromax, Karbonn, etc., more people are shifting to smartphones. Other factors contributing to this shift includes the fact that 98.9% of India currently has no access to fixed-line broadband connectivity options and industries like banking, retail, entertainment, health and education have begun to introduce compelling mobile services. Due to these factors, smartphone sales have begun to cannibalize the traditional feature phone market, while the overall market grew by 12% last year, the smartphone market grew by 229%. At this rate, the smartphone market will overtake feature phones in terms of number of units sold, by 2017.
