Smartphone users in India

The Indian smartphone user base has a lot of potential to grow since many people still do not have internet subscription. However, the initiative by the central government to digitize the economy and availability of cheap internet plans by private sector firms such as Reliance Jio, has resulted in a significant increase. The smartphone user base in India is predicted to cross 35 percent by 2022.
